Due to being undercut by ground water, the earth under our porch has been giving way and one of posts has been sinking and bending, thus causing the porch to break apart and pulling the porch, roof, and everything attached to it to be pulled along with it, literally pulling our house down around it. I don't know if the damage is apparent from the photo taken, but this is the best photo I can get.
Unfortunately, since our house is built of cement, it is not an easy repair. Our chosen contractor spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to reduce the cost for us, but tells us that it is going to run around $15,000 to $20,000! But both of us are disabled, so income is quite limited. But we also can't let our home be pulled down around our ears. The only thing we can think to do is to ask our friends, family, and even strangers for help. Please help in any way you can. And please pass our request along to your friends, neighbors, church members, or anyone else you can think of.
Thank you VERY MUCH! We can't tell you how much we appreciate your help.
