Stabilise / relevel foundations

Posted 3 years ago

Pre 1900's bungalow - one end has shifted/sunk significantly, and it appears that the old totora piles have rotted from the tops of the concrete foundation blocks. Would like to stabilise and partially level that end of the house (I doubt it can be brought back to true with the budget we have, but would like to level things up at least a wee bit if that is feasible). House is on flat land, with sufficient room to crouch/crawl underneath.
