My Kemah, Texas home was more challenging than most elevation projects as a 1960’s era split-level, two-story home with a contiguous slab for an enclosed patio addition. The footings of the slab were extraordinarily thick as much as 5 feet thick in places. Of the original eight companies that bid on the project, some fell out of contention or otherwise withdrew from the county’s program. The final three contenders ended up using Mr. Fairley’s superior conceptual drawings. After winning the bid, I worked closely with Mr. Fairley as he developed CAD drawings to visualize alternative solutions before settling on plans that were revised as needed. This was a challenging project that I thought could not be done. Planet Three Consulting has my support and recommendation.
