Nope not quite yet. We've got mebbie a month left.

It's been a rollercoaster of hells thats forsure.....I look back to doing the work around Christmas @ -25c..... man , what a project.

----

@ Phobia : about 3 weeks per duplex best case , 6 weeks worst case.......There's a lotta 'On-The -Fly' fixing going on.

@Perryc/matsta : Cheap isn't a word I use ever. We've gone through probably 35 thousand dollars worth of 'bolts'....
...

I'll get some more pics here , just gotta find good ones.

Those bolts must be about 10 feet long and gold right? That's alot of money on bolts though.

For the record though, this is what I was doing within the last 8 months.....and I consider this fun :biggrin:

How many per unit? You lifting just the house or house and foundation? Either way I imagine there is more than one :censored: or :censored: being said.

3-6 weeks a unit...thats got to be raising them millimeters at a time....I never would have guessed it would have taken that long.

Double beers on the house

The time really varies.we had one unit take 6 weeks.....50+ pilings. The easy ones take about 3 weeks.

Here's a shot of the 6 week ( more like 7 but it was -20 winter....) unit ;

So you can see the anchors I'm talking about on that bracket..We use about 200 per unit...HILTI HSL3-m12/50's...10,000 pound dynamic load concrete bolts.12 bux each.

:haha:

Nice lift there eh ?

Nope.the building is entirely supported by the steel piling assembly you see there.There is one of those every 6 feet or so.
