Sinking Eichler - Foundation problems

Due to a massive plumbing problem... the front corner of my Eichler has sunk at least 2 - 3 inches. It is an A-frame type model. This sinkage is causing the bottom of the "A" to separate from the flat part of the roof and causing the "A" main beam to need an 'emergency' support. The plumbing problem was fixed back in February.

Doe anyone have an ideas to fix the foundation? or lift the house?

Anyone recommend a structural engineer/contractor who is well qualified for this type of job? Send recommendations directly to: ellemac65 AT

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Contracting professional you may need does PRESSURE GROUTING. My father-in-law recommends (CA lic #8 in Special Inspector for schools and hospitals)...he's old.... that you only consider companies that have been doing this for more than 10 years. Sometimes, the sunken area can be lifted, and grouted without pressure. I have seen pressures up to about 2,500 PSI.
