The Lake House
The Lake House is a 2006 American romantic drama film remake of the Korean motion picture Il Mare (2000). It was written by David Auburn, directed by Alejandro Agresti, and stars Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock as Alex Wyler and Kate Forster, respectively an architect living in 2004 and a doctor living in 2006. The two are introduced and share correspondence across the years by leaving letters in a mailbox at the lake house they have both lived in at separate points in time. This film also reunites Reeves and Bullock for the first time in a film since they co-starred in Speed in 1994.
Today was unusual. We’d made all the preparations and rented some substantial I-beams that had been delivered to the site by truck-trailer. Yesterday, the crew maneuvered these into place under the critical load-bearing walls of the building. Today, we would use pneumatic jacks to gradually lift the entire building (and its contents) 6 feet off the ground. What was worse, when it had been lifted, it had to be stable enough for us to spend the next two weeks digging trenches, replumbing sewer and supply lines, and pouring a seismic-proof foundation.
