Work continues to bring the century-and-a-half-old house into level.  The side porch has been removed and placed on temporary supports, and the brick pavers behind the house have been removed and stacked for reinstallation.  To prepare the house for releveling, beams were installed underneath the house to provide additional support.   The structure has been placed on cribbing, and jacks have been set and are ready to begin lifting.  An extensive area underneath the house has been excavated to provide access for drilling equipment to drill holes for the drill pier support system.  The concrete pier supports will be set into more stable clay about thirty-five feet deep.
