    How to Level an Existing House

    Foundations settle over time. Even brand new houses experience some movement of the foundation. The question is, how do you level a floor that sinks toward the center of a home? And how much of this can homeowners do? Of course, this probably isn’t something you should attempt on your own with zero experience; however, having an idea of what goes on can help you make the best decisions for yourself and for you home.

    Steps Edit

    Consult a qualified Structural Engineer first. The structure may not be as you expect and you may cause more problems than you solve.

    Determine how far the middle of the house needs to be lifted. With a taut string, water or laser level, make a straight line from one side of the foundation to the other. You may find this task easier if you hold the string off the sagging floor joists by attaching blocks of the same thickness at opposite sides of the basement. Nail them to the underside of the joists as near the foundation as you can. Measure the distance from that line to the bottom of the floor joists. Repeat this process in several locations under the house.

    When you know where the lowest portion of the center is located, mark that location.

    Build a temporary post using concrete blocks or large blocks of wood. Make sure that the post is located on firm, level ground under the house. Alternate the placement of each layer of blocks by 90 degrees to improve stability.

    Buy or rent a hydraulic jack. When the space above the temporary post is adequate to place the jack and reach the structural member above, start jacking the house up. As the house moves, add smaller blocks to support the center of the structure at the new elevation.

    When the lowest point has been raised to the height of the next lowest points, remove the jack carefully, allowing the house to rest on the temporary post.

    Check for problems that may have been created by movement of the house. (See Warnings below.) Sheetrock cracks may appear.

    Build another temporary post and repeat the process.

    When the floor is level and stable on the temporary posts, it is time to prepare for permanent supports. Existing supports may be usable with minor modifications. Check the bottom of the supports for rot or other signs of trouble. If the bottom of the posts are no longer sinking, they can remain in place. By cutting the center supports shorter, a new beam can be placed on top of the shortened posts to support the center of the house.

    Although the actual studio anniversary was in April we wanted to thank all of our current and past wedding and corporate clients for your continued support. It seems like yesterday when David went off on his own in April 2002 after learning so much from working and shooting for many of the finest area photography studios for most of the early Nineties. Thank you also to the many hospitality industry friends we work with day in and out, it is these relationships that make the Houston market such a pleasure to be in. D Jones Photography would not be one of the most respected Houston area photography studios without the continued support of all of our amazing client and vendor referrals.

    If you have been following our Instagram account or Facebook Page this year we have been actively featuring some of our best images from the past fifteen years. Do you have any favorites that we created for you or your company? Get in touch with us as we would love to feature those images that mean the most and the stories behind them. Email the studio to contribute to this year of thanks so that we can honor all of those that make our success possible.

    We hope to share some great news related to David s Bucket List Travel this Spring and will be sure to announce to all when the plans and date are finalized. Have a fantastic Summer and stay tuned!

    This summer we covered the wedding of Frances and Philip at St Cecilia s Catholic Church and Houston Country Club. It is so much fun working with past clients as three of the bridesmaids were past brides of ours. In fact we covered the groom s brother s wedding back in 2011. Floral and decor provided by Susie Miller while the cake was from Marlene Romero .

    On a rare Spring Saturday, rare because I was not covering a wedding on a Saturday afternoon, picture this elbow deep in crawfish on a deck, under a tent in Stafford, my back is completely soaked by the torrential downpour that has ensued. My phone starts vibrating, I m truly not thinking about answering but it s Boyd, as in Jackson Company. Boyd Bryan .

    Without hesitation I answered the call subsequently covering my phone case with crustacean juices. What s that, am I working? No, not at all Can you cover an event at theCorinthianfor a couple hours, our client s photographer is flooded in and cannot get out of his neighborhood? Naturally I said yes!

    I was advised that if I could be there in an hour when the program began, it would be ideal. I dropped everything I was doing and proceeded to splash through the parking lot to my car to head back into town.

    What should have been at 15 minute drive ended up taking 45 minutes due to the amount of water on 59 and the number of accidents. I raced into the studio, rinsed off, scrubbed the mud bug scent off my hands and arms, changed into my suit, grabbed my gear and took off. I still arrived in time (just barely) and was relieved to find that they had pushed the timeline back, several of the attendees were also running late due to the storms and flooding.

    I took a deep breath and got my gear ready to cover this dinner, for recipients of the Gold Medal, Distinguished Alumni Award and Meritorious Service Award for Rice University .

    This is what the hospitality industry is about, resolving issues regardless of the situation, and making our clients events go off without a hitch. Whether it be a missing linen or a rescheduled event due to severe flooding we have experienced here in Houston lately. You never know what the obstacle might be. We see it all and are here to assist and provide our clients the best possible experience without flinching.

    Many clients do not realize the issues that arise and are solved behind the scenes due to wonderful professional relationships in our industry, without the guests ever being aware.

    I am a proud member of the NACE Houston Chapter family, for 14 years now, and a long time board member. I currently serve as the Treasurer and can truly say that hiring a professional makes all the difference.

    Here is another spring wedding we covered for Alex and Travis at the Bell Tower on 34th. Linens and decor were provided by Plants N Petals while the cake was courtesy of Edible Designs by Jessie. Entertainment for the evening was from the Chinatown band .

      Wills, Trusts Dying Intestate: How They Differ

      Most people understand that having some sort of an estate plan is, as Martha Stewart would say, a “good thing.” However, many of us don’t take the steps to get that estate plan in place because we don’t understand the nuances between wills and trusts – and dying without either.

      Here’s what will generally happen if you die, intestate (without a will or trust), with a will, and with a trust. For this example, we’re assuming you have children, but no spouse:

      1. Intestate. If you should die intestate, your estate will go through probate and all the world could know what you owned, what you owed, and who got what. Your mortgage company, car loan company, and credit card companies will all seek payment on balances you owed at the time of your death.

      After that, state law will decide who gets what and when.

      -For example, if your only heirs are your children and you have not provided any instructions, state law will mandate divvying up proceeds equally.
      -Your older children will get their shares immediately if they’ve attained adulthood.
      -But, the court will appoint a guardian to manage the money for your minor children until they become adults.
      -Shockingly, that guardian can charge a lot of money and be a total stranger as can the guardian who raises your child.
      -Yes, if you die without a valid
