comment 1ft cantilever with uneven floor joist
Yikes, typo on the last post, I meant to say the surest way to go on the cantilever side not sagging would be pour a concrete, and add piers and siding to finish it off( I sure I’m skipping few elements here) I would very much leave current cantilever as how they look, just strengthened them so my tile job won’t crack

I’m sure the softest way to go about is pour new footing on the cantilever area... but this would be my last resort and I’m not even sure I can achieve perfectly leveling without damaging typical craftsman house windows and molding etc..

comment 1ft cantilever with uneven floor joist
I’m hoping recent beam to be lifted little bit to meet the highest point ( the original perimeter footing section) and by adding new 2x6x8–on 16” o.c—— longer span than current 2x6x3 will have enough long back span to support 1ft cantilever. I’m planning on lif the cantilever wall side 1/4” a day,but eventually after new joists are placed, the area will be still cantilevered. will I still be in trouble down the road? I hope I’m explaining the situation clear...

Hi Daniel, hope my reply will get to you, When I moved in , the floor were so way throughout the house, naively thinking that I could lift the floor, a structural engineer came by, advised me to add a beam where the longest beam spans were( not sure how far between beams at the moment) so I added a beams but the licensed structural engineer’s recommended licensed contractor left me in the middle of the job so lifting never proceeded ( this is in middle of inside of the house, no cantilevered area) anyways, since the original perimeter of the footing areas being the highest point,
