Prepping for next spring and cut away 1/2 of the insulation around the bottom of our place. We are going to be putting it back on before winter but we wanted to get some measurements. Looking at things under our place and it looks really good and dry. We were not sure how it would turn out 12 years ago but it is much drier than I could have hoped for with not much sign of rodents.
Dry..but shifting slightly over the years. The good news is that the beams are very accessable for jacking. The bad news is that the thick bed of crusher dust and the thick layer of gravel are compacting when attempting to Jack them with the bottle jack. We will need to dig these all out to create a large enough footprint on stable ground to jack. Or slide 3 26ft beams under and Jack from there. We will see in the spring!
..and our Bok Choi might go to seed for the 2nd time this season..might be too cold for bees. Lettuces still going too.
..and sad days..the backhoe is taken off the tractor and replaced by our back bkade. Which means winter is nearby. Yuck
The good news about all the levelling and jacking Bunkie work we did…we actually think it will go fairly smoothly when we apply the same principles to our place. Fun!
…and more YouTube. Supporting the loft with lag bolts and kludging a beam to the wall.
