Foundation Building


Two houses in Ashland are in the process of having their foundations replaced and by some odd coincidence - they're directly across the street from one another.  Both structures were lifted by jacks and now sit on blocks, seemingly suspended in air.  They do not belong to the same owners and there was no arrangement to have them done at the same time.  I happened by this afternoon just as the first snowfall of winter was starting (and the mail carrier was making her rounds).

  1. Funny coincidence. Are the people still living in them or is that impossible. I think about the connections with the sewer, water and electricity perhaps cut off now and to restore again.

  2. I wish it could be possible with our own house to treat against humidity...
    What a coincidence! A hard season is starting for the mail carrier.

  3. Very cool, and snow to boot. We are about to get some here in NY tomorrow - bad for biking...

    That is a rather unusual coincidence, unless some subterranean even caused them both to need work at the same time.

  4. I wonder if earthquakes prompted a foundation fix, or just some movement due to the hilly section. I have been looking to Ashland and other areas of Oregon to move to, along with parts of Washington State. I'm curious which would be cheaper to live in? I live in AZ right now.
