Does anyone know the rule on digging below the footers. The ground has been disturbing in this house built in the 40’s. I don’t think you can disturb the footing below the footers without a retaining wall or leaving the dirt undisturbed by 2 ft on either side.???
I seriously doubt that house has much of a footer to begin with. Your going to have to base that one on past performance. Its built in the 40’s so its working. You can’t however predict future issues and obviously its not 100% Idealy it should have some type of additonal retainer or support but that drop off is small enough that I wouldn’t see an issues if the walls are not cracked up. All you can do is explain how its supposed to be and adivse a secondary review to ensure the second opinon doesn’t suggest more.
