I am re-siding and probably re-sheathing a portion of my house. The house includes a carport framed in and converted to living space where the existing slab is only ~1" above grade. From what I've read a possible fix might be adding temporary supports and building a block wall to bring the "foundation wall" up 8 inches.
The house does not have proper clearance to grade on one portion (and it cannot be fixed by grading). It has been that way for ~40 years. Am I likely to be required to fix this when making modifications?
The rest of the house mostly have the 6" of clearance required by code.
