It's time to put JT Barrett in.
Update on my situation: our lowball offer was accepted and we have a contract. Did a walkthrough with the inspector today and there were no major surprises. The major projects are re-pouring one foundation wall; new roof; new driveway; gut reno of the kitchen; and new paint throughout along with some sheetrock upstairs. We've hit a slight snag due to a potential title defect. The attorneys are looking into it but we were supposed to close tomorrow, and that is obviously...
One reason I hope to get this house: looking forward to working on projects. Number one would be building a work bench in the garage. It's a 2.5 car detached garage so it's ideal for a workspace.
Has anyone ordered from the NYC store rather than the website? Haven't bought any shirts since last year and I've lost some weight, so I may order two different sizes. I assume returning the shirts to Japan is a hassle.
Well, we made a cash offer today. Let's see what happens.

Oh, on the plumbing and electrical: there were some newer looking PVC sewer drainage pipes in the basement. The water pressure was excellent, which is apparently a sign that there is little corrosion in the pipes as is common with galvanized. Saw some copper but didn't see galvanized. There's a breaker box that looks newer. I didn't pull the covers to check the wiring but will do so again.

The fact that the house is on the small side means none of the jobs are particularly large or time-consuming. Basically, we would do the following: -One wall of...
Thanks for the advice. The plumbing and electrical are two things I'm pretty concerned about due to the age of the home (built 1940). Could be hard to know what has been upgraded until an inspection is done.I'm a little anxious in general because it's a foreclosure.
The attic was actually insulated recently! My dream would be spray foam throughout but then you have to tear out the sheetrock and it becomes a major job.
