A New Foundation

New Foundation New Foundation

As this Monroe, Wa log home was originally constructed upon distantly spaced piers, the log walls and floor were sagging midspan and the home was experiencing uneven settling. As well, the log walls were too low to the ground and were in serious danger of rotting as they were practically buried in the dirt.

 

Creasey Log Homes was asked to excavate and pour continuous concrete footings and walls to provide ample support and to jack and level the structure. At the same time, proper crawlspace ventilation was installed along with foundation drainage to carry away stormwater from the downspouts to a suitable discharge point away from the home. Final backfilling was graded to allow rainwater to drain away from the home and created necessary separation of the logs from the ground.
