Hello & welcome to the forums. You've got the right idea on where to start this. The key thing with doing this without causing real problems elsewhere is raise the floor slowly, it didn't sag overnight and you've got to take your time about setting it back right. I't's going to take 2-3 months of gradual lifts to do this right. Be prepared for the inevitable cracks which will appear especially above doors & windows, but we'll worry about fixing those later. Post back if you've still got questions.
