Helped remodel a lake home where we jacked up the roof, poured new slab,rebuilt all the walls one at a time,set the roof back on, then replaced the roof. Owner got a completely new lakehome on a lot where he couldn't tear down and build new because of setback requirements.

I'd jack it up and rebuild those walls, foundations. Either block or treated lumber.

That sounds like a place to start then. Get that dirt away so you can jack it up and replace the bad stuff.

No idea what sort of permitting you may need to do but I'll tell you a true story from many years ago that you MIGHT consider.

My late father in law owned an island in Daytona Beach. There was a recreation hall on the island that he wanted to tear down and rebuild . City wouldn't give him a permit EXCEPT to remodel the building.

Being a structural engineer and a devious guy who hated government, he built a completely new building inside the old one....BUT connected to one existing wall.

Then we tore down the old shell. The city didn't like it but he complied with the letter of the permit laugh


I've heard of doing this by building the new structure on the OUTSIDE of the old, so you can still use the old structure till it's done.


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

Beware! Jill Pudlewski, Ron Oates and Keven Begesse are liars and thiefs!
