Constant remodeling on a 110 year old house

Hi - I too am from midwest - Kansas- grew up watching my father do everything and married a man who hired everything done. Too poor to hire everything done - house 105 years old wiyj outside walls being 24" thick and made of rock; issue right now-we have foster children (none in the basement) but regs won't let us put ourselves oy 2 children down there because 2 doorways in load bearing wall also 24" thick an made of rock aren't tall enough. Can we jack doorways up enough to cut into rock and put in new taller doorways? Ca we do it ourselves with some heip or better hired? Thank you all so much for your help.

Welcome to the forum Fastlearner.
A good paint job isn't cheap. A cheap paint job isn't good.
