Porch stays on the ground, house jumps... what?!? All the new door and window openings were framed while the house was still on the ground to save on scaffolding... genius, I know. We cut the framing free from the foundation and slowly raised it up, 3" at a time over two days. It's being supported by six columns of lincoln-log-like cribbing. This is quite possibly the craziest thing I've ever done.
