It's structurally sound but there is still some work to be done inside but most of it is outside. It needs new siding and a lot of attention to detail. The prices low at $39,500 but I'm having a hard time putting a picture up of it. It's pretty sad looking now but with a little work and cash, it could be a nice Craftsman Style home. My question is, how do you market an ugly house?
But more importantly, this has nothing to do with getting a handout, it doesn't even relate. What have you got against humanity helping each other. I did comment on the guy putting screwdriver in the electrical panel and advised the writers. People who do not know what they are doing could get hurt with this.
Another skill is indoor painting. Some Home Depots offer classes as to basic painting, prep, safety tips (especially with pre mid-1970's home that may have leaded paint) as well as many other popular repairs and do-it-yourself improvements. Others skills to learn: caulking bathroom tubs and sinks; hanging pictures and other fixtures on walls; replacing a light switch or wall plug; cleaning decks. The most important lessons to know are when a pro or experience person should do a job and as to certain projects, when you need a pemit obtained from a town to do the job - even a pro.
Prior to giving readers this advise I would recommend doing reseach and consulting OSHA.
Slide 3. Are you sure the electrical circuit is not adjacent to the stud? This situation is common in residential construction.
Slide 4. ( minor issue). Make sure the nut is threaded on prior to securing it firmly. Also, ensure the stopper is in the appropriate positon to make it function correctly.
Slide 7 Do Not attempt CALL OSHA. No dead cover, no PPE and a non insulated screwdriver.
Slide 9. The only location that this device is legally installed is as a test drain for a water based fire protection system.
This isn't even for a new purchase. I've been living in the house for 16 years and the company I had, like many in Florida, pulled out and left their customers in the lurch. I have a lovely little house in excellent shape but because it is 36 years old, I'm faced with paying 40% more than last year with the old company.
If only it was so simple. We bought an extended ranch house a year ago. I read a book oh how to be your own home inspector and hired a real home inspector. I missed that a bedroom in the basement is not legal unless there is a full window. We paid for a three bedroom house when there was only two legal bedrooms. The windows were not put in correctly and leaked warm air.
in two windows the glass was broken and not repaired. And, of course, after the sale the sellers disappeared into the either. The majority of the house is fine. But it has cost us a large sum, to us, to put it right.. I would be fine with changing a tap washer. Finding the chimney has no insulation in one place and flame was open to the wood structure I am not fine with. That alone cost us $3000. It is very important to know what is what in home inspection. And, try to, choosing a good home inspector, which sadly seems to be a matter of luck.
