I saw this 1964 house raised foundation , concrete pad, wood post.
The kitchen sagged along with the liv room. I went underneath to crawl space
and the only thing I saw was that they added piers in that area. The rest
underneath looked good , no , moisture , cracked joist ect… but I did notice
that where it sagged in the kitchen it seemed like all the piers in that area went from big on one end to smaller pairs on leading to where it sagged.
like I said all looked good and sound . is this how they built some of them because the owner [ my friend ] said all the houses on t=his block do that
and he had it checked out and they told him it was fine for the age . what do you think?, how do you write this up without scaring him . he don’t seem to concerned about it.
