Pier and Beam house in Magnolia, built early 1950s, the floor underneath kitchen completely rotted, kitchen gutted down to the dirt. Concrete foundation/crawl-space wall on three sides of the kitchen location. This crawl-space area under the kitchen has had very poor ventilation for the last 60 years. When it rains, water collects inside the concrete foundation walls. I am in need of a structural engineer who has experience in working with homes built in the early 1950s. Recommendations with moisture barrier installation; crawl-space ventilation; answering questions such as "what wood is rotted and what isn't?"; etc... I have gotten a quote on kitchen repairs, but I don't want to build something that's going to completely rot out in 10 years. Any advice on a good structural engineer with experience dealing with old pier and beam homes?

mbx posted a topic in Houston Construction, Home Repair, and ImprovementI'm working with an out-of-state architect and engineer for a home renovation project. They are unaware of Houston's permitting process. I found the IBC codes. They've asked for some sample plans. How many plans do I need? As-built, demo, etc? I've contacted Houston Permitting Center but no one knew how to help. I just kept getting pinged around from department to department. Thanks in advance.
