Re: Leveling a floor-old porch now a kitchen
My guess is the floor joists are running perpendicular to the grade. If so, you can pull a level line and install 2 X spacers cut to the proper thickness on top of the joists before you install a sub-floor or flooring. If the joists are running the same direction as the grade you can do the same thing except you will have to cut the 2X material in a wedge shape to get a level nailing surface or nail the leveled 2 X on the side of the existing joists.
