Hunting Shack Stabilized in Palisade Minnesota

This hunting shack in Northern Minnesota was quickly shifting as the concrete columns in the ground moved with the shifting soil. The owner of this property understood what the outcome would look like if the home shifted any further and knew it was time to get an expert analysis. We helped this customer to see what types of permanent options we could provide for the home and he decided using helical piers was the smartest choice for his situation. We used these piers in combination with steel beams to provide permanent and level support for the whole building.

This family cabin in Palisade, MN was recently purchased. In order to make it a space for the whole family to enjoy, the new owners would like to expand the floorplan. Because the cabin has some issues with settling, they would like to level and support the structure before adding on.

DBS Design Specialist James Miller visited the home for a free, no-obligation estimate. After diagnosing the structural issues, James created a plan using our SmartJack and helical pier system. 

DBS Foreman Trevor Ingle and his crew completed this stabilization project. 6 SmartJack® adjustable beams were installed beneath the cabin to support the floor joists in the crawl space. To raise and level the cabin foundation, our crew drove 12 helical piers into the ground around the perimeter. Once these piers reach stable soil, the weight of the cabin is transferred to the strata layer far beneath the ground's surface. 

This cabin is now structurally sound and the family can move on with their plans to expand and renovate this Northwoods retreat!

Job Stories From Palisade, MN
Leveling Shifting Building with Push Piers in Palisade MN

Many people in Minnesota and Wisconsin enjoy having a place where they can escape for the weekend and spend time with friends and family in the outdoors. Our customer who owned this building in Palisade MN used it as a Hunting Shack. The owner wanted this building to be around for a long time, but the foundation was beginning to cause problems inside the home. The home was sitting on concrete pillars that had shifted over time and were causing the home to move as well. Certain parts of the home were even inches away from falling off of the supports completely. The owner of this shack knew something needed to be done or he would be risking much worse damage to the property. He called DBS Residential Solutions after finding the permanent foundation solutions online and scheduled a free estimate for the shack. He met with our specialist who provided him with a wealth of information on why the problem was happening and which option would make the most sense to use in this situation. This time that solution turned out to be a combination of helical piers which are anchored deep in the earth to prevent movement, and steel beams set on top of the piers to provide strong even support throughout the whole home. As you look through these photos you can see the careful detail of the work our crews do to ensure a permanent and level foundation for the building.
