Im helping a friend level his 1920"s home in WV, the foundation is in great condition but the interior is saging all over, the walls are not over supports, they are in between the floor joist and the upstairs is saging about 2" to 3" but the ceiling on the first floor is not bad. Sould the wall be over a support of some kind? We are using a string line to check the floor for level and we have jacks in the basement but we are making very little progress. We are going to gut the whole house but wanted to get it level first.
