Carpentry expert needed

(Asking for a friend.) I found a document that I need some help with, it looks like a draft of an AskMe question. "Need carpentry help. Can anybody sanity-check these measurements of my house? I think there's something weird going on." That's all, it says "there's no more inside." [more inside]

I was smart from the very beginning

The old man who lives downstairs is perfectly safe, and has gone to the country for the weekend. Charming man. Very dear to me. I'm sure there is a good explanation for the incessant rhythmic sound I'm hearing. Perhaps mice?

House foundation help needed

Need some house help quickly - we just had a wind storm that started to pull up my house and things were so hectic I kind of blacked out for a bit. When I awoke, the house had caused (and subsequently suffered) some damage. How can I go about finding an inspector to make sure the house's foundation wasn't damaged in the fall? I need to find someone soon, as I'm about to go on a long hike with a few others.
