ceiling cracking

ok guys... long time no talk... I know I said I was done but I lied.... Had to take a break for school... for the most part the kitchen is done (still have to do the upper cabinets but that will be sept, oct)

so... as this picture shows, there is a crack... while the crack doesnt look too bad in this picture.. it is getting somewhat bigger... I cant find a usb cable for a my camera and the memory card is defunct.. so, I cant show you a picture right now... but to describe it... I would say that it is 1/16 to 1/8 in wide right now with the kitchen/dining room somewhat higher than the living room... I will attatch the picture of the layout of the house also... (this is between the living room and dining/kitchen in the picture)



but since I have noticed this change... I am wondering if going forward with placing support under the house is a good idea (diy that is)... on the other hand... to have a contractor do it, I will have to wait till sept and then scratch the upper cabinets... (which is ok...) so the question is....
is this still diy doable? windows are the same as previously, doors are the same as previous.....
