Sleepout Slide and Reposition Using The Ground Screw System
Client Problem: This timber framed and clad sleepout was resting on the ground without any foundations. It was also identified that the structure was too close to the boundary and stream behind the property. The Christchurch City Council had therefore specified that it be moved at least 8 metres away from the stream.
House Lifters’ Solution: House Lifters devised a quick and cost effective way to solve this issue for the owner. The sleep out was lifted and slid 8 metres away from the stream and given new foundations using the Ground Screw System.
“Being in the building industry, I knew what could go wrong if I didn’t choose the right company for the job. When Rod saw the house and looked at the plans, he was confident about what needed to be done, and enthusiastic about the challenge. But the other contractors who I got quotes from, either I could tell that because the lift was so complex, they didn’t want to do it (and their price reflected that)… Or their methodology of how they were going to do it, didn’t give me confidence. The lift went well and House Lifters were very efficient at providing information and documentation to the Engineer. The ‘close-out’ paperwork was sent quickly too.”
