My crawl space is approx. 6 feet tall. I need to raise the home about 2-3 additional feet, how much would something like this cost. The home is 1250 sq. ft. (Currently resting on cinder blocks.)

You cannot even presume to get a sound financial cost for such an alteration without having a structural engineer examine and make the proper recommendations.

Increasing the height of your foundation may include having to demolish and reconstruct the entire existing foundation to meet prevailing building codes.
