This is potato farm country in Aroostook County. I just looked at a survey of the area and the soils are classified as till which I think are a mix of sand, gravel, clay and rock (primarily limestone). This jives with what you can observe at least. Here in Northern NJ we have allot of glacial rubble and exposed ledge. This area is very different.
The property totals 80 acres. The surrounding homes are other farms for the most part.
I found some information on the web that suggests new foundation work generally costs from $10-$12 / sq. ft. Of couse I need to factor in the cost of the extra work involved with cribbing the house etc... which I guess is the least known part of this calculation I'm attempting.
I compiled a list of local contractors that do foundations. I'll be heading up in late April.
