1920 Lakeside cottage on jacks- Foundation TROUBLE
Thanks! Thats good to hear.
So as to the bedrock situation, would you have someone look at the bedrock, I guess, is it called a soil test? first, or would you get the drawing of the structural engineer done before you search for bedrock? Also, can I get away with just getting the back wall done with cinderblocks initially as an intermediary measure, or do you think I need definitively to jack up the entire structure asap?

The cottage is obviously light weight and the masonry wall system with footing will weigh more than the structure it supports. More manual labor on this one than anything. If you have bedrock close to the surface, it simplifies the project even more.
That being said, I'd still recommend paying for a good plan of action.
