We recently inherited a 100 yr old log cabin in Michigan. The floor is separating from the bottom of the walls in a few places. My husband was able to use boards and chinking to close it up. Over the winter, the ground froze and it opened back up again. It appears that the footing for the walls are solid, but the footings for the floor are not deep enough which is causing it to move when the ground freezes. What do you suggest? Digging the floor footings to make them deeper?

I would recommend getting a foundation expert to look at it.
