As much as I walk around our job site, I don't remember ever seeing these things laying around. Turns out that they are the original jacks that we found under the house when we bought it. Thanks to the prior owner, a hose bib leaked and caused the house to fall in the center. Then, a genius crew came in with these very jacks and shored up the house. But, they took it a little too far (perhaps due to the empty 12-pack of beer that was also under the house) and jacked it up too much. All of this lead to a broken foundation, which is part of how we got a good deal on a sad house. So, these jacks represent opportunity and faith in our vision. They are quite beautiful in their own special way.
