Kellogg Residence


Date: 10/2005

Duration: 10 Days

Built in 1910, the Kellogg residence was originally designed for use as a boathouse, and was later converted into a residential home. The current owners decided to raise the house 6 to 8 feet and completely demolish and rebuild the first floor area, while preserving the second floor construction. The owners were unable to find a contractor to perform the required jacking procedure due to poor soil conditions and inability to build any temporary foundations.
