Herte's a photo of how one house was lifted to provide adequate space to dig and install a proper foundation...This one was not a DIY proposition, I'm sure
Thanks for your comments everyone!! It's appreciated. To follow up:Native_NM, the sonotubes are a good idea and that was my original thought. It's just so much work digging up there. I'd have to dig 12 for the perimeter alone. Ugh! It's still a possibilty though.markert2523, The floor does stay dry. I have 10' ceiling there. I'm liking the idea about just pouring a slab. You said there are flaws with that idea. Can you elaborate?hpinson, Monroe's population is about 226 last census, I believe. What I like about it the most is the quiet. I've been a teacher for 25 years now, prior to that a Navy submariner. I just want a peaceful, quiet place to relax and putter around and not a lot of people. (hahaha) The windfarm you saw in the picture just went up this summer. There are 10 to the right of the shed and in front of the shed, on a distant mountain are 10 more. They're in the town of Florida, MA.archimedes, It was originally built as a shed. I'm not even sure it had any permits. The thing is solid as a rock, though. If it weren't for the foundation it'd be perfect. I thought 18" to get some air flow underneath. What would be a good height? There doesn't seem to be any evidence of any prior movement with it, either. Is there anything else besides sonotubes or a slab I could do?Thanks again to everyone. You've given me alot to think about and a lot more questions.
