Cabin Raising - AFTER THE FLOOD!November 14th, 2010 in member junk
It's been too long since my last post - we've been so busy working on the flooded cabin while settling in to our happy newly-married life! After spring floods caused the creek to rise - over two feet of water inside our cabin - we decided to raise the structure another four feet. Mainly, because soon after the flood that ruined most of the inside stuff was all cleaned up, it flooded AGAIN! We had a contractor on site soon after and had the structure jacked up and set on cribs. We've had block laid for piers and hope to be lowering it (to 8 feet off the ground) very soon. It's been going slowly but now we have lots of design ideas and projects to share about the project! We will be re-purposing and re-creating as much as possible.
