Home Stabilized Atop Critical Dune
This structure was built in the early 1990's atop a shifting sand dune overlooking Lake Michigan. The structure captured the crest of the dune with the front and back yard sloping away at greater than a 45 degree angle. Over the years, the home settled and shifted due to the landscape and the center of the structure sagged due to inadequate support footings.
Deitz House Moving Engineers was commissioned to design and implement a noninvasive supplemental support system. The Deitz team of professionals designed a sophisticated system to bridge the existing footing and enable the house to remain intact. Deitz House Moving fabricated custom support steel, columns, and stanchion for this project. Finally, Deitz installed concrete grade beams and fitted all structural steel. This home will sit atop one of West Michigan’s most beautiful locations for years to come.
