I had the foundation redone on my 105 year old house.

They could only bring it within what they called 80% of level... whatever... they did a solid job and it's a lot better.

The house still slopes a few inches from front to back.

my kitchen runs about half the length of the house on the left side, and I'm currently remodelling it.

If I make the floor level from the highest part (the front) be about 1.5" higher at the back of the kitchen where the kitchen opens to my living room.

Where the kitchen opens to the living room there is about 18" of walkway (it's whatever the width of my chimney is)

I plan on redoing the living room at some point in the future that would bring the right side of the house level to the left, but for the time being is there a way to reduce that 1.5" threshold over 18" that won't make me cringe every time I look at it?

Thanks

That reducer will need to be tapered---it will look funky ---only you will cringe---old houses sometimes are a little funky---just do what you must do----Mike----
