I have found that the sole-plate on the upper story of our 2-story home is separating from the subfloor. Isn't there some nominal height shrinkage in conventional lumber at the joist zones? The T1-11 siding was apparently installed over wet lumber and is now bearing part of the weight of the second floor. Scary!! Any thoughts?
