100 year old house porch roof raising/shoring


There's 0 chance of the roof shifting from side to side.
Only way for it to go if all the columns failed or where removed is the front side falling down.

Not for lifting only to keep the roof from shifting. I'll position them at the lentil area (left) just for back up
