Country/Cabin-type house in NJ has a sunroom & dining room built directly on a stone patio on grade.
Hi… bought a house last year, knowing about the owner-built additions and general substandard conditions, however, last summer was DRY. THIS summer was WET. The additions on grade bring have no foundations, perimeter drainage or underslab drainage. Those ends of the house are basically 80% humidity, and the beautiful grooved wood paneling we bought the house for is starting to mildew/rot/turn color. We think the wet summer has caused a high water table (we also have basement dampness problems)… What is my biggest problem? How do I start? I can do some of the work myself.
