We are in the process of building a new home. Our foundation and framing guy built through the winter, assuring us that they install wood basements all year. We have a wood basement with a wood floor and a 2" x 6" framed home on the wood basement foundation. The frost has come out of the ground and our house has "settled" 3" on one whole side. Our house is designed to load at 2,000 Psf and our soil (sand) supports 4,000 Psf so it's not a soil problem. Any suggestions? I just need my floors to be level!
I've spoken with an engineer and convinced it was frozen pea stone. We're considering purlins on the floor to make up 2" of the slope. We will have to reset the front door and stairs, but don't think much else will be affected. Am I missing anything? I'm waiting a call back from a lawyer. Thank you!
