    need help

    Hi everyone,
    I am having trouble in understanding the paragraph below. I will be glad if you help. Thanks in advance.

    The plastering of the walls was generally ruined, and the house had slightly lurched to the east, but the doors had plenty of leeway for other lurches still, before they would bind at any point.

    The house's foundation has settled, so the house is no longer level, but leaning to the east. This has cracked the plaster on the walls. The doors still open and close and there is enough of a gap between the door and the jamb for the house to settle even more before the doors bind and no longer move freely.
