We spoke too soon about the house


We spoke too soon about the house


We had our home inspection today. It turns out the house had a foundation that had failed. They built a new wood foundation underneath the house. The wood foundation was not up to code. What was particularly troublesome was the lack of pressure treated wood combined with moisture in the basement. So we are looking again.

    Better than getting stuck with a dud. Something will turn up.

    Yikes! We have a wood basement ourselves (we’re quite happy with it so far). I can’t imagine why someone would build an underground structure using non-treated wood….

    I should add that we never had ours inspected, which makes me a bit nervous now…

    God will lead you to the right place. One that will pass all inspections. :D

    We gave up two houses to get into the house we now have and looking back, I would not have liked the previous houses. Hang in there God knows what you guys need!!
