    it probably hasn’t had any TLC in a very long time ,

    Any house just needs the proper maintenance

    You would have thought it would have the proper maintenance considering it was a church. It might just be the people doing the work.

    Haha yeah that doesn’t necessarily mean anything ,
    It could be both , the owners not willing to pay for the proper maintenance or qualified workers , and like you said , maybe the people working on it really didn’t have the experience 🤷‍♂️

    Took all the wood handled tools out of the shed, shovels, rakes, axes, etc. and gave them all a light sanding with 120 grit and a fresh coat of BLO on them. Yearly ritual and I really need a couple of light days to recover.

    With my Grandson around, I need to add a rail to my deck with gates, that I never did when I built it as it is low off the ground, but a toddler needs to be fenced in – the cedar was more expensive than the entire deck build – sheesh …

    I also spent the last two days excavating, except it was by accident I think I found a septic tank that’s been abandoned in 2005. Now that I found it I am wondering if I should cover it back up or collapse it. It’s hollow inside and I don’t think the bottom has been broken.

    Jim may be I can borrow your dozer for a day?

    Sure….it’s at the rental shop…lol.

    I had to take another easy day. Maybe a few more coming up too. Knees and legs are killing me. I did clean the inside of the cab of the truck though. First time since I bought it and I told the dealer not to bother cleaning it either, so it took a long time. Looks and smells a lot better. I love the smell of Mother’s Protectant. It reminds me of the cherry scent they put in alcohol for the fuel for race cars.

    Inspector comes tomorrow to look over the septic job. If he OK’s the guys plan they will start on it in the afternoon. Going to be about $15k for the job….yikes!

    Yep septic system repairs are always expensive. Hopefully some of that will go back to the owner for non-disclosure at time of sale.

    I think it will be exceedingly difficult to prove it was a “non-disclosure”.

    If there is a defect the seller is not aware of, they are not liable after the sale, the buyer have the opportunity to do their due diligence via inspection, and of course most home inspections are general quick look over which will not catch issues more than skin deep.

    Not sure if at the time of the sale electricity and water were turned off, if so it might have prevented testing of the systems. This is typical in foreclosure homes where previous owners had their utilities cut due to non payment and the banks taking over would have you sign hold harmless as is addendum saying you are taking a risk and they have no idea of the conditions.

    The only times I have seen a buyer able to prove non-disclosure of known defect is when the buyer calls a pro in for repairs like a plumber and the plumber happens to be the same one the seller had called a year prior and the plumber said “oh yeah I remember this house I was here last year serious issue I gave them a quote of $20000 and never heard from them and looks like they decided to sell…” That, is the smoking gun one needs.

    Took all the wood handled tools out of the shed, shovels, rakes, axes, etc. and gave them all a light sanding with 120 grit and a fresh coat of BLO on them. Yearly ritual and I really need a couple of light days to recover.

    This a job I need to do. I think of it every time I grab a shovel or rake. Once I get caught up on my jobs I will tackle this job.

    We have been getting quotes on installing a new furnace and central air this week. It has been a interesting experience. We have a few questions to ask the the first contractor before make our decision. One guy wouldn’t give us a written estimate after he found we were having more quotes.

    Good luck with the new system.

    Are you abandoning the existing tank and starting a new one at a different location or are you pulling out the old one and putting in a new one?

    Yup, all new. 14′ long tank a distribution box and 5 new runs of infiltrator. The old system will be collapsed and filled.

    I got the truck washed and waxed today. Even did a $10 engine detail. Sprayed it all down with tire foam that doesn’t need rinsing off.

    Yep the $10 tire foam trick works. Glad you got the truck all shined up.
