Re: Sloping floors in a newer house
2" out of level is alot especially if the house is only 4 yrs old. in that case it would seem like something is seriously wrong.
if it felt like 1/4" out of level and be more likely if they used conventional lumber for the joists. as the crown of the lumber can make it seems that way..
back to the issue though, if there is a problem with the soil and the house is settling that early in the life of the house there definitely would be cracks in the drywall. the only other thing i can think of is that maybe the double top plate was left out on a wall or two causing the joists to slope
fire up the saw and make some dust
