Re: what's wrong?

In addition to the previouus reasons for not doing a geotechnical/soils report  for small residential additions, I believe another reason for not doing such a report is that almost certainly the recommendations of such a report will require a much more rigid foundation and thus parts of the building will move more than the newer addition and thus damages will occur at the join lines.
