Hey, I found this thread on google and its fantastic! ive really learnt a lot, especially about costs.
I'm a complete newbie at any renovations and building whatsoever, but i have a 3bed, 1 bath queenslander in hamilton that I need to raise to build a couple of bedrooms+bathroom+kitchen underneath.
Its already got a good concrete slab underneath, so i was wondering if I'll need to completely redo it after raising the house, or if it can stay fairly in tact? Cos from what i can tell, a large bulk of raising costs goes to the slab.
Also to wyld, you mentioned that the company you used made a few cracks in the lifting job - are there some other companies you could recomend? because thats really something that scares me - how do you go about repairing cracks? Can they be repaired to a high standard, or will there always be problems?
thanks heaps! keep up the great work
