Cottage Renovation – Big Cedar Lake

This cottage renovation on Big Cedar Lake addressed some serious structural issues. The existing cottage was nothing but a liability, built on 18 feet of peat in a swamp.  The basement was so low to the water table of Big Cedar Lake that it flooded every Spring.

An engineering challenge to say the least, KLC lifted the cottage and moved it out of the way in order to pile drive in a series of steel pylons and an engineered beam system.  These new structures accommodated a fresh foundation and engineered floor system, elevated 4 feet from the original level.  The cottage was then relocated onto the new foundation and renovated to add a finished basement and reconfigured main floor.

The serious structural foundation issues are now a thing of the past and our client can feel good that their investment is now worth every penny and a true asset no longer threatened by flooding and settling.
