I'm new to these boards. . .and a new home owner (I'm used to condos!) In any event, I have a question about our basement.
The former owner had "dug out" the basement and partially finished it - however there's a section which has two temporary columns (they look like jacks) that are bearing the weight of the floors above. They look like they have been there a long time.
We definitely want to replace them with permanent columns (lolly columns?) - my questions are: How difficult is this type of project, and how expensive is a typical installation? Any thoughts?
