I am looking to buy a home and saw one today in a good area but its an older house - 1961.
The whole house seems a little off level-wise, but there is one room in the back corner of the house where there has been a lot of settling.
This room leans a lot.
There is a utility room in the basement right below this room and I saw at least 3 jacks under this room already.
That being said, here are the questions:
1) is there a way to tell that the settling has stopped?
2) slowly over time, can this room possibly be level again?
3) we plan on adding a second floor eventually to this house, is there anything in this situation that would make adding a second floor above this room impossible?
thanks for your time!
