Got quotes for the basic house raise now. To give you an idea, I need 21 steel columns and 2 hardwood (100x100) columns. Beams work out to about 23m of 200PFC and 20m of 150PFC.
A few quotes came in around the $20-21k mark, this is just for the raise, beams, columns and some temporary bracing sets. Then last week I got a really sharp quote of around $16k, from a reputable house raiser as well. Went back to the first bloke who I wanted to do the job as he lives local, and he said he'll match it. So I'm booked in for the raise in May.
Now I'm looking to book in a plumber/gasfitter and electrician, to disconnect prior to raise and then re-install after. Also need to get quotes for stairs and concreter. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Very interested in the Company that provided you a quote for $16k to raise your house. Can you send me their details [post or PM]. Thx Kell.
