Default Lake Winnisquam Cottage

We're looking for a contractor to "Jack and level " a cottage on Lake Winnisquam in Belmont. Any help would be appreciated. The building was built in the 30's on wood pillars that have been replaced with cement blocks that have settled over the years.

Thirty years a ago I got a 30 ton house jack at Zyla's and jacked the cabin up 16" and added two cement blocks. Always promised myself we'd "get it done right" the next season. HA!. Still level. You can probably get a jack from Harbor Freight.
