got to play house inspector

Went with my son's friend to look at a house he's contemplating purchasing. Definitely a fixer upper. I was surprised at how solid the floors felt seeing it has [sawmill] 2x8 floor joists on 24" centers...... and no insulation except for 1/2 of the ceilings, attic has no ventilation. The bath rm ceiling slopes from 6.5' to 6' - definitely an issue since the boy is 6'2" tall.

Overall I was impressed with the house given it's bargain basement price - it remains to be seen if the boy is willing to do that much work or buy a more expensive house needing no or less work

Hey Mark,

I see a fishing cork signaling a nibble, and the angler hoping to set the hook!
