Raising a 100-year-old House

A slightly unusual job, yielding a few interesting surprises. We lifted up the first floor and the tiled roof of this 100-year-old house in Claremont (the house had settled 120mm in one corner), to prepare for remedial structural steel works and additions. Under the floorboards we found some cool artifacts including a cigarette packet (of course) and an advertising card for Stott’s secretarial school. Thanks to Steve Tipp at Acrow for his engineering assistance.
