While under an old Pleasant Hill house, The House Whisperer inspector spotted this makes-me-nervous-looking-at-it support post sitting on loosely stacked bricks… obviously installed by a non-professional.
Posts and piers are installed to support the house floor and to prevent sagging.
We live in earthquake country, where the ground can rock n roll. This post and pier would likely collapse resulting is possible floor sag or structural damage.
