As the home is lifted – slowly and at 12-inch intervals – workers remove the brick piers underneath and increase the height of the crib supports. Eventually, the home’s 50-ton weight is supported entirely by the cribs and steel beams. Due to uneven distribution of a home’s weight (kitchens and baths, often located in the rear of a home, add additional weight that can sink jack pads), the team routinely checks cribs with levels to ensure the home’s structural integrity.
