As a recent home buyer of a 100 year old home I've undertaken a significant project on the 2nd story and need some advice.
I am going from room to room and starting with redoing the master bedroom but the subfloor is definitely not level. the master BR has its own pitched roof over it that pops out from the main roof so I believe the side walls help to support a little roof and shouldn't be messed with.
My dream with the room is to build dresser drawers into the side walls and to level the floor. The drawers I'll have to do without taking out the current studs since the other side of the studs are partly exterior and supporting stucco walls. The subfloor, however, is not level.
There is about a 1-1.5 inch unevenness with the middle of the floor being a little higher than the sides (this may be because the side walls support some weight and have pushed down over time). The subfloor is made of diagonal 7" planks that go throughout the whole 2nd level. I also would like it to tie in to some of the other rooms and hall way. There is also a tile bathroom on the 2nd floor to consider with matching the floor heights. Any advice on how to level this room would be much appreciated.
