Sagging kitchen floor
I have an offer in on a 144 year old brick farm house. The kitchen (about 16x22) is a single story over a VERY tight crawlspace. The center of the floor is sagging about 4 inches lower than the edges. The floor is covered in slate/ceramic tiles. Surprisingly, the floor feels very solid under foot. I'm guessing this is because the joists are sitting on the ground. (not sure, though) Getting under this floor is not really an option. Would I likely be looking at a complete tearout and rebuild? I would really like more access under the floor, so while the floor was removed, I would be able to dig out the crawlspace for future access. Any ideas or recommendations? Thanks!
