1939 is just kinda-old. Sounds like it's not gonna make a National
I'd suggest priorities:
1. repair any structural problems and possible related causes (water
leakage, insufficient foundation support, etc.) as possible first so
you can support loads. If not, find a 'plan-b'.
2. replace all damaged materials.
3. possibly by room, make floor supports level; work up from there
I'd be prepared to remove lots of crap, from your statement. Might be
useful in woodstove, anyhow. :")
Seems you'll be buying LOTS of whatever materials you choose. Get
expert advice, and negotiate purchase with REAL lumber-yard. You gonna
do this yourself?
If the subfloor is "either rotted or been eaten by termites", have you
solved the cause of that problem?
What are you going to do below existing partitions?
