My wife and I own a 1928 Bungalow in Phoenix, Arizona. We have wood floors that are supported by posts that sink into concrete underneath the house. The problem is that for 35 years the previous owners allowed water to run under the house building up the dirt. We corrected this by changing the structure of the land to allow water (when it rains) to flow away from the house. Because of this buildup of dirt underneath the house I cannot get a termite crew to get under the house. I need to have this dirt removed with out damaging the post that hold up the house. In most areas underneath the house there is less than a foot of space.
These homes are rare in Phoenix Arizona due to the urban sprawl of the last 30 years and receive a historic value and title. We love our home very much. I have no idea where to start and who to hire or how.
