Hi everyone. My house was built in 1963 and the back porch added sometime in the 70s. A section of the foundation sunk and pushed outward. I have a couple ideas on how to tackle it but I thought I'd ask the group. I've been in the house since 2003 and it hasn't moved anymore since. I might have shifted decades ago. I'll post a link. Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Brian

Maybe when you get down to good blocks, Just level the tops with concrete to match the other side and then rebuild the block wall

Thank you. Once I get the blocks removed, I'm going to see if I can simply set them in deeper to match the good (left) side of the foundation. If I can't, I'm thinking I'll brick it up and then go over it with a thick stucco coat so everything looks straight.

On a side note, I'm surprised the porch floor didn't break. It's about 4" thick, but under that section on the left, there is a 12" gap under the concrete floor before it hits dirt, so there's nothing supporting that section.
