    So the settlement is to be blamed on poor compaction or?

    I set the footing myself and it was on hard ground. I even watched the soil engineer test it with her ***** stick. I feel that I have perhaps a little excessive ground water run off because of my lot make up and 10 years ago we removed an oil tank about 6 feet from the footing. I fear the footing has drop a little and the Paralam has sagged a little and together they make for one giant pain in the ass.

    My gut tells me to poor two new footings and help out the paralam. Screw the open design and throw some lumber at it. I added another temp support post today out of three 2"x4"'s.

    Time to break out the shovel.... And hand it to David.... LOL
