Maybe someone is stealing your neighbors house ?
I've only owned one home with no basement and never would again. Luckily it was the first I ever owned but it forced me to sell a whole lot of gear in order to make a bedroom for our first child.
Couldn't convince my ex that with a little imagination an SVT would make a great book shelf and we could store diapers in an open back speaker cab.
Neighbor removed his pool and added a 2nd level, with extends out over the garage.
He turned a 1500 sqft home (neighbor is valued at $521k) into a 2600 sqft home currently valued at $604k
A few people have raised their houses here, but it's not quite so easy to do with 80+ tons of bricks and stone...
The alternative is digging it out:
The video above he talks about "it's better than going to the gym" ... which reminded me of this scene.
Quite possibly there is bedrock outcropping under the house being lifted and they couldn't dig deeper.
A raised basement will be drier too.
This stuff always fascinates me. Used to see houses being moved all the time. Rarely ever see that anymore. Whole lot of work to do it right, but must be easier and cheaper than teardown and new build.
Basement: where Midwesterners live during tornado season.
Edit: Our Indiana basement had sleeping bags, candles, matches, water, snacks, a battery-powered radio, books, games, playing cards, and a bored well.
Maybe your neighbor's gonna do like some truck people do and hang some nuts under it!
Also, the value went up just by removing the pool. That may seem counterintuitive, but it's true. The percentage of people who want the cost of maintenance and ultimately rebuilding/replacing a pool is small.
did he lose a contact lens or something?
Looks like they just took the rims. Maybe the stereo.
When I was in 8th grade, around '94, the coach of the little league baseball team I played on had an 18th century house moved to the end of some neighborhood onto a huge lot. So big that he built a baseball field for his son & team to practice, a batting cage, pitching area, etc... At 13 yrs old, it was pretty crazy. The house was a really nice Victorian-style house. I was actually just out that way not long ago. It's out on the very outskirts of the city where it hasn't really been industrialized yet. I always liked it personally. It's a nice house with a bunch of land and a baseball field lol.
we had to repair a sinking basement by raising our house like that, moved it 32 feet off to the side, tear down and excavate 2/3 of the existing foundation, removed 42 truck loads of rotted wood and tree stumps that the develop dumped in a ravine and covered with dirt before he built our house. Unfortunately that developer had deep pockets and there wasn't a lawyer east of the Mississippi who would take a case against him. My parents had to take a second mortgage (in 1972 it wasn't as easy as it is today) and we were scattered to friends houses for 6 weeks just as school was starting. I was going to my first freshman year of high school. 12 noon to 539 at night, the late shift of a dual session (srs and jrs went to morning session)
OP that picture brought back a lot of memories
He lost a pick! You know how hard it is to find those suckers! LOL!
If ya ever decide to come back east @circles ... I have some acreage that could use your touch.
So Have you talked to your neighbor about what is going on with the house. I bet some one is moving it and a New house will go in its place. Thats just how a house looks before they move it with a flat bead .
