Raising and leveling pier and beam house
How do I raise a pier and beam house that has part of the house sitting directly on the ground. I have found no way to get under the house yet. I would like to see if there is a way I could do it without calling in a company who does these repairs as I don't have a lot of funds to pay a professional. I am trying to tackle it myself because the house is very small, maybe 600 sq. ft. and no side of the home is longer than 20 ft. 4 inches. I would like to hear from any and everyone who has an idea or plan to help. Thanks in advance.
You may want to dig under the edge of the house for jack spaces, use a 2 X block under a railroad jack with a 4" X 4" X any length angle iron between the house and the jack(s). Raise one side at a time (no more than 1/2") and block it. Eventually, when you have the house raised to an acceptable height, you could dig and pour a footer around the perimeter and build a concrete block foundation.
