    Mike,

    Your photos are so small it is hard to make out what is in them.

    Got any photos taken at a higher resolution?

    That looks like half the basement/crawl spaces in the Portland area. It's super common for people to just excavate a bunch of dirt and leave posts sitting atop vertical soil cuts and entire sections of the foundation hanging in space.

    It often accompanies bug damage and rot from the low clearance and usual lack of ventilation.

    I tend to go pretty general on the reporing of it. If you start talking about it post by post you'll undoubtedly leave something out and be in trouble.
