Moving house?

This house has recently been moved and is still resting on temporary supports. Steel beams, running from front to back, have been installed about every 10 feet under the floor framing. Two larger steel beams, running side to side, have been installed under the beams running front to back. Heavy wooden timbers have been used for cribbing to support the steel beams. Footings have already been poured under the house to support a new concrete block foundation that will be built up to the sill plate on the bottom of the first floor. When everything is complete, the temporary supports will be removed and the house will be resting over a new, full height basement.
