    My shed needs to be raised up a good 1.5' off the ground. Over the past twenty years the earth has shifted a bit near the front and it now needs to be raised up and some new footings put underneath. I could probably tackle it myself but I'm not structural expert and it's a large shed (~14' x ~16'). I want to see if I can get some people in for quotes on the job but I don't know what kind of company I'd reach out to.. any suggestions?

    Hmmm, I figure they'd be good at replacing the lawn around the shed but not so much lifting it

    Anybody with some bottle jacks, a level, and by the sounds of it...some concrete/sono.

    I levelled my dads minihome with those things.
