New Home Cracking & Shrinking Problems
Despite the crystal clear, in depth analysis of the previous poster, I will ask a few questions.
Do you have a furnace? If you do, I would definitely get an integrated humidifier, to help reduce the dramatic swings in the humidity.
What signs , if any, show up in the attic? Cracked joists or rafters? Separation of rafter/joist connections? Check the lumber grade stamps on the exposed framing. Was the house framed with green (Grn) wood?
What about the foundation? Slab? Any cracks?
The "dangerous" classification is absurd, given the information supplied. The "chicken little " posting serves no purpose.
