This what the front of our house looked like for about a week,
with the pieces slowly going under our house.
They had to put about 30 piers in to prop the front of the house up.
It was sloping by about six inches.
Luckily, they did not have to pull up my kitchen tile,
which was awesome, since they were able to come in from the outside.
Big pile of dirt from under our house
My poor living room that had 8 holes.
And yes, my front porch which is now in pretty serious need of a large welcome mat
to cover the patched cement.
About three weeks after the holes were filled in, we finally had the structural engineer come
and pronounce our home level (mostly). Two days before Christmas, we were finally able to install laminate flooring. This was the easy part. Straight, no corners, no angles.
This was as far as we got the first day.....it is not as easy as they make it sound in the DIY video.
We did not get it all the way done for Christmas, but enough.
