The pier is plumb--the house sill is crooked!
The pier is plumb--the house sill is crooked!

 Here's yet another level of scary.  The pier in the picture is actually level and plumb, although that's not readily apparent in the photo.  The "shims" jammed into the gap between the pier and the sill the pier is supposed to be supporting tell an entirely different story.  Besides the fact that the pier should be making DIRECT CONTACT with 100% of the sill surface, notice how the shims are jammed in-- at at least a 15 degree angle.

This tells me that the sill, which is SUPPORTING THE HOUSE, is sitting crooked at least 15 degrees.  Bad.  Very bad.  Again, my client graciously declined to buy this house.
