RELEVELING 160 YEAR OLD HOME


Posted by STEVE HENDERSON on January 19th, 2003 11:57 AM

I HAVE AQUIRED A 160 YEAR OLD BRICK 1 1/2 STORY HOUSE. SEVERAL ROOMS HAVE BEEN ADDED ON ALSO. THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THE HOUSE HAS SETTLED. APPROXAMITLY 3 INS TOWRED THE SOUTH EAST CORNER.
THERE IS A LOW CRAWL SPACE UNDER THE HOUSE.A ROOM, ONE OF THE ADD ON'S. IS AT THE SAME CORNER AND ALSO PROVIDES ACCSESS DO A ROTTED FLOOR THAT I REMOVED. THE MAIN BEAMS SEEM IN GOOD SHAPE, BUT ARE SUPPORTED BY HAPHAZARD PILES OF BRICKS , ROCK, STUDS AND BRACES. THE REST OF THE HOUSE IS IN RELATIVELY GOOD CONDITION.HOW AND WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST AND MOST COST EFFECTIVE WAY OF REMEDYING THIS CONDITION. I AM DISABLED AND ON A FIXED INCOME. BUT BY WORKING AT SHORT INTERVALLS AND SOME HELP FROM MY FAMILY. HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO ALL OF THE REPAIRS , WIREING, DRYWALL , PLUMBING ETC MYSELF UP TO THIS POINT. ANY INFORMATION AND ADVICE OR HOW TO INSTRUCTION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU, STEVE H
