Hi everyone, I apologize if this is the wrong place but I have a
question I really need help with.
Back in March we had a fire that destroyed our home and ever since then
we've been waiting to have another one built so we can return. They've
got a modular home built for us, and also we're adding another so it'll
be like a giant duplex with the second half being for my sister. This
is what it's supposed to look like.
Notice how it's all level, also there is supposed to be a basement
under each side that we can stand up and walk around in.
Now, I went down to view the construction of the foundation today and
it seemed very stange to me given the specifications above, this is
what it looked like.
Please forgive my crappy artistic ability.
The black parts are the walls and the red parts are these ends of
screws type things, like the end you screw in to something. On the top
view the grey lines are where the sections meet.
Now given this foundation, and the fact that the house is supposed to
be level I can't understand how they're going to do it. The only thing
I can think of is they're going to place some kind of bracket on top of
the foundation and then put the house on it to level it. But if that's
the case which side would it be level to?
There are two streets (one on the left and one on the right sides of
the side view, top and bottom on the top view) and the first one
(right/bottom) is higher up than the 2nd one, so if it was level with
the right on the side view then the left side would have to climb a
ladder to get in the house and if it was level with the left side we'd
have to be 2 feet tall to walk around our basement.
I'm just wondering if anyone knows this type of setup and can explain
what the heck they're doing. My sister who's handling the whole thing
keeps asking but the guy she's dealing with is a real a-hole.
Any help on this issue would be appreciated it's been almost 6 months
now and I just want to freakin go home.
