run east to west and it has a stucco exterior. How do I level the
Sounds more like your floor, including the footers for the posts holding
the centerline beam, has raised up.
But seriously- we can't see your house from here. You need a site
survey by a house-leveling company and/or an engineer, structural and
soil in expertise. Need to check the entire house and basement for level
and square, and figure out exactly what moved and why. The floors
themselves can always be jacked back into level, presumably along with
the walls that rest on them. If the foundation has heaved or settled,
well, that gets a tad more expensive. Like having a house-moving company
support the whole house on cribbing while you build a new foundation
