Hehe ... yes, if it was supposed to be a tree house. ;-)
Unfortunately it wasn't, and no only was there a tree lifting the
kitchen floor, what was supposed to be the under-floor space was
nearly full of building rubble and junk. ;-(
I can't remember the details re if they contacted the builder, if the
builder held their hands up to any of it or what, but I do know they
had to pay an independent builder to lift some of the flooring and
remove the tree and as much of the junk as they could reach.
This was one of those new builds where they reclaimed some swamp land
or something (in Essex, not the Everglades!) and when thy had an
extension built it had to have pile foundations down to what sounded
like a ridiculous depth. ;-(
