3 1/2" fallen floor in 1840 home

Postby AnnieP » Wed Oct 17, 2007 1:40 pm

Looking for advise on how to recify a 3 1/2" drop in first floor of an old 1840 home.
3 1/2" difference over an 18 foot span.
Beam in basement reads level for the entire span.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions!

See our project section. Levelling floor joists. There are other projects on repairing structural timber and replacing a timber floor including what to do (with picyures) when the joists are rotten. All the information for 90% of the questions in this forum is in the projects section.
