Lifting a House With Jacks – Episode #186
Learn how to save $25,000
In East York Toronto the average ceiling height in a basement is 6’2″ which is not that high. In order to get over 7 feet in a basement you either can underpin which can cost at least $30,000 or if you find a wood framed bungalow then you can lift the house with jacks for approximately $6,000 and get the similar results.
Check out this video and see how we managed to lift this bungalow by jacking up the house.
Ultimately, the results we are looking for are to gain more value for the house by adding a decent living space in the basement for a live-in family or to add a basement apartment and obtain much higher rents.
