our upstairs floors sag in middle so all bedrooms are raised.would like to lower floors in bedrooms to match hallway. a railway rail is used to hold up upstairs. is there a easy way to do this as we have no money to hire a contractor. how big a job is it ? thanks.

You need to give us a picture of this one---Using a railroad rail is not exactly standard practic.

Give us something to work with--Mike---

hi the floors were raised by using 2x4to make each bedroom level. so the front bedroom was flush at one end and then shimmied to make level so is up about 4 in. higher than hallwway floor.

It sounds like you have structural issues way beyond your abiliity to fix or diagnose.
I would bring in contractors to look at the house and give you a proper determination of the problem and possible fixes.
