Help me lift a HOUSE, literally -- Civil, structural or mechanical engineer

Job Description:

I need a civil/mechanical/structural engineer to help me refine a project for lifting a house 2.5m in height!

I intend to put a wooden house, which sits over 14 stilts (that are currently 1m high) in ACME screws so that I can move it up AND DOWN for about 2.5m as desired. I realize this is highly unusual and for that I think that it can be very interesting to do it.

I have devised a way to add 14 columns and have the house hang from acme screws which are anchored and be driven up or down as desired, but the system is not yet engineered properly and needs development.

The house is a "farnsworth" style house (long and thin) 25x5m in dimensions, all made in hard wood, including beams. It sits over 14 columns, which will have to be unearthed or sawed from base. It weighs roughly 15 tons, as per my rough calculations

I'm looking for someone with experience in mechanical and or civil design to help me put together the system and dimension it properly. I don't need the blueprints signed, only an engineer with experience to help me refine the project and think along.
