[Construction] Basement wall falls off

Our builder and I were in our front yard swapping lies this afternoon - when all of a sudden, the existing basement wall fell off! It didn't look like it was holding the house up at all, so I kinda just shrugged my shoulders and said "oh well." We're planning on moving out this weekend anyway. Bob (the builder) took a quick look and determined the wall (and former wall under it) was not holding the house up, so we both chalked it up to no big deal.

However, after a closer look - he determined it was an important wall and I should get out of the house. So now I'm at DU's Library. I don't think our house will cave in because the wall just fell off. Who knows though - it's kinda freaky walking around in a house that has a chance of collapsing. The 2nd picture below is kinda funny - he was going to prop the house up, but decided it wasn't gonna work. Hopefully, I can go home in a couple of hours and all will be patched up - so I can continue working there for the next couple of days.

First off all, good luck with the house. Sounds scary! Anyways, I figured I'd ask one thing to your RSS. If you add pictures in it, do not use relative URLs. My rss-reader doesn't want to display them right. Then again, what do pictures do in RSS? ;-) Oh well.. good luck with the house! :-)

Good luck Matt, this does not look cheap or easy to fix! Ouch!
