Getting the Foundation Fixed!!!

   I got 5 different quotes for fixing the foundation of my house, and settled with a company I think I can trust, and their price is reasonable, $11,000.  They started on Monday.  Benjamin and I are staying at my parents house.  There are holes through my foundation, and tunnels under my house.  The plumber quoted me $1,800 today for more tunneling and replacing pipes.  I was afraid this number would be much higher.  This is all kinda scary, throwing large amounts of money around, but I'm happy to be getting this burden off of my shoulders.  I'm very thankful to have the support of Benjamin and my Family though this.  I can't wait to get some new carpet and move back in next week!!

Wow! That is scary. However, if you end up selling in the next 10 years, it should still be good.

You're getting a lifetime warranty on the repairs, right? I imagine this will be a really good thing for the long-term value of the place.
