First time here and am working on little knowledge. Our house is 9 years old. We have a big open basement and are slowly starting to finish it. Recently we had dri core flooring installed and the exterior walls framed up. During the installation of the flooring, the fellows moved the support posts - took them down and moved them andn then put them back. In one case they had taken one down and left it down for a day or two. Didn't think much of it at the time, but during Christmas cleaning the other day, our house has definelty shifted. I've noted slight separation in molding, trims and floors where one type (ceramic) meets another (wood) and trims and mislaigmemtnof doors - especeilly near the staircase - big crack on the driwall/paint and a separation between a stair post and the floor of about 1/4". In somecase it seems off by 1/4" or more. The support posts are back in place. However, there were two support posts near the stairs leading downstairs. The guys framed up around the stairs to make ready for walls and reinstalled the support posts between the 2 x 4 framing around the stairs. The posts are now about a foot from there original locations. Does any of this make sense? I can get pictures to post if anyone is iterest in advising. Question is if we put the posts back in there origal position, could we rememedy some of the separaion we are seeing? Is is accetpable to have suppport posts sandwiched bewteen 2 x 4 framing or is it best to have it on the cement slab? Is it safe to temporarily move a support posts without installing another temporatry support?
