OK.....here we go....the wife and I have lost our minds and bought a two story house with dormers and crows nest roof built in 1912....we have been told it is "box" type construction. the house is a project for us....and among other things, it needs to be leveled. after leveling, i am wondering if anyone has experience with "framing in" on the interior walls of the house...we have been told this is the way to go....the contractor estimate for this is over $30K just for this portion of the remodel.....i am wondering if this is really needed....i mean...the walls have been there almost 100 years!!! are there any alternatives? is this required? does anyone out there have any advice or experience with this situation?

please lemme know
