Anyone had a house raised?
Our 1905 Victorian house has a 6.5 foot high basement which is just enough to make it bearable to be down there, not enough to avoid having to duck under ducts. The neighbourhood we live in has many houses of similar age and many are being raised.
I'm curious whether people on this forum have had this done or enquired into it, and if so what it was like, what it cost, what it entailed, was it worth it, etc? Any unexpected outcomes, good or bad?
It could be happening here because house prices are so high that having a nice mortgage helper is almost essential - Vancouver is becoming technically a city of duplexes. I'm not sure we want to go this route (and DH doesn't!) but I am curious what it is like to have it done.
