I’m looking for some advice for a co-worker. He has a log home that recently was expanded. The the floor level of the addition is not flush with the existing floor. The addition splits the house from front to back and the joint lies in the middle of the great room. The original floor (wood decking on floor joists laid on top of concrete piers) is about 3/4 inch lower at the back of the house and about 2 inches lower at the front of the house (approximately 25 ft. front to back). Any suggestions on how to minimze the differences in the two levels of floor? The rest of the construction has been completed so jacking up the old side is not an option. Thanks for any advice.
