Closing the Gap: The project continues



The bull dozer didn't make an apearance today but a bigger tractor did! The gap is now only about 1 inch wide and they are working on it as I type.




Mike looks on as our neighbor, Randy, gently nudges the house with his tractor.
They took a break for lunch (chicken and dumplings remember?) and now there is a discussion going on about moving the winches and somehow lifting up the side of the house. They also assured me that I am not in danger as I sit here in the living room.


The next step apparently is to reposition the winches and bolt the beam to the joist, or maybe to the foundation. I'm not sure what they decided. I do know that the weather is beautiful now and the sun is out, but I'm still staying inside...

Did the foundation shift?

Oh my goodness! Such an undertaking! I hope they can get it fixed to where it is supposed to be.

This fascinates me and terrifies me all at the same time. Hope everything worked(s?) out okay.

There must be something a bit unsettling ( no pun intended ) to sit and type while someone with big machinery shifts the HOUSE !

Great pictures. Hopefully they will be happy reminders of a home now repaired.
