Jacked up!

I was telling a client about his project the other day, but words don’t really tell the whole story.  We took a little house on Avenue F in Hyde Park and lifted it ten feet to make it the second floor of a two story house.  It’s rare to find a house that’s a candidate for this kind of trick, but when it’s right, it can be a really efficient way to double the size of a house.

It also adds an element of excitement to the process that takes the whole thing up a notch!!!  Check out the video below:
