A few months ago I jacked up my whole house 1.5" I had a big post on here with alot of help.

One corner of my house roughly a 6' span accross the pour wall I jacked it about 1/8-1/4 to high. The french doors around that corner are a little off. But still shut fine also a new crack in second floor ceiling showed up. Along with a few more new cracks in the walls..... Is that enough to leave alone or should I jack house back up on that corner and take a shim out? I used 1/8 and 1/4 metal shims on solid concrete blocks. So i do not see much room for settling. I hate to keep moving the house around. But if needed I will do it.

The cracks showed up as a result of the movement. It's easier to reposition the door than jack the house up again. Easier on both you and the house.
