Outside bearing wall listing
 
My friends new construction 2 story house is listing. Can this be fixed with the second story on and and roof? It is out of rack by an inch and a half.

I'd recommend they contact a local professional engineer and have them come to the site and evaluate the structure

you want to make the walls plumb and braced before any roof framing is added to the structure. Looks like they need to pick up a level to plumb the walls and then put braces on the plumb walls... fixed
