How do I fix a wood foundation that is bowing. When I recently purchased the house basement was somewhat finished. Had to remove drywall because last homeowner foreclosed on house. So they turn off the sump pump. Now north side of house looks like its sinking.(counters in kitchen is pulling away from wall upstairs and ceiling is cracked.) House is a two story 3400 sq ft.I've recently lost my job and I'm single female, that is not afraid to get dirty. So I would like to fix it myself if I can. What do I need to do?
