I'm looking to buy an old house with had an addition put on 30 years ago. There is a bump in the kitchen first floor, a bump in the floor in the second floor bedroom (under the carpet) and there's a bump in the roof.
The inspector said that the house and the addition were probably constructed this way and that there was no signs of settling and that the roof from the old house to the addition were poorly connected causing the bump.
I'm thinking that it's more likely that everything was aligned and then the addition settled downward causing everything else to rise a bit... but I know nothing about houses. Anyone have any input? As well, is the bump in the floor something that could be easily fixed?
Can't seem to add the photo via the Insert Image options... so here's a link to it.
