PERCH worked with a Moretown, VT homeowner who received a grant from FEMA to elevate his house 7 feet for flood mitigation. Messier House Moving performed the actual lift. PERCH specified a procedure to break up the existing basement slab for proper drainage, fill and compact over it, and place a new ground-level slab. The compacted soil was tested during construction to verify adequate density and moisture content. PERCH also designed a weld detail for the new steel beam supporting the second floor, and a wall with anchor bolts to connect the elevated house down to its original foundation.
