As of right now with the help of the good lord I will be tearing down a house at one place and building it at another. The house will be mine if things go as planned but I am not gonna swear to it yet as I am currently negotiating with the people that currently own it. They want the house removed so they can put in a trailer. The house is pretty old but structurally solid. This is my summer plans to move the house from point A to point B and rebuild it. However it will not be the same design as it sit now. Gonna add my personal touch to it in the design as I will be living in it once completed. I cant say that the house will be finished by the end of summer as I am flying solo on the tear down and rebuild. Really I would like it to remain a solo effort on this anyways. I want to see if I can accomplish a major build on my own.
Here is my question. I am not educated in the building of a foundation on uneven ground. The place I am building it basically slopes down hill so I need advice on making a foundation that will counter the slope and make the house perfectly level.
My idea was to make a "U" shaped like Block wall at the slope and fill it in with slate type rock. Then lay a few blocks to build the flooring frame on to keep the house off the ground. But I cant swear to that Idea actually working.
Any advice or techniques would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
