The Anatomy of a Crack

Yes, my mom's fantastic crack solution is gone. but once they removed the drywall you can see the structural source of the crack. When the kitchen bump was built, the contractor just added on the beam support and the new wall framing but didn't tie them to the original structure. you can see that the 1/4-inch wider space on the right stud is right where the crack formed on the drywall.
