Countdown to Jackhammers

In a little less than an hour, the fine folks from Olshan will begin the process of jackhammering our basement in an effort to pier the center supports beneath the I-beam that runs the length of the house. That’ll make your stomach turn!

Over the next three days, they will break through the basement foundation in four locations and install piers, along with 40′ of drain tile beneath the house, and an underground sump pump…. all in an attempt to level out the house, and keep the water out from under the foundation. And, for good measure, we’re also gonna have piers under the front porch installed.

So, don’t be surprised if the Deauxmayne is down from time to time over the next many days. We’ll be back.
