second story gutted kitchen


I need to support a 8X10 second story kitchen and raise it ~3.5". Then support it while I pour a new slab/patio underneath it. It was built as an addition in the 80's and the foundation settled. I'm using 8' floor jacks but because of the surrounding elevation, building a n outside support with 2X10 supports under kitchen would be difficult. Can I use 2 floor jacks rated at 12000 lbs under each side , pour new slab, position 6X6" 's for support and remove jacks and fill with concrete? The kitchen has been gutted to studs.

Go right ahead. It is your place. If it was me, I would have a house moving company do the raising and cribbing.

Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
