After a major flood, this homeowner decided that the best way to prevent damage from future flooding events was to have the house lifted. The fireplace and front porch were lifted with the house. Steel beams were inserted through the foundation, then it was lifted with a Unified Jacking System. It was supported on solid oak "crib piles" while a new foundation was built up and fitted to the house. The end result is an even better house where all living space and utilities are elevated above the 100-year floodplain. The ground level is now a garage for parking and storage. Flood vents have been installed so that flood waters can flow through without damaging foundation walls. After a flood it can be easily cleaned.
