home inspection blues

well, i anticipated a post with beautiful photos of our newly inspected home. we aren't sure what we are going to do yet, but here is what we discovered at the inspection.

the sweet inspector guy said that he had only one concern, but that it was kind of a big concern. a portion of the house is built on a non-traditional foundation. it is actually built on a "deck" kind of. its foundation is wood and although it looks like it is treated wood and may be fine structurally, the unconventional foundation could hurt its resale potential down the road.

so that is where we are. no pictures. we'll keep you informed.

sorry to hear that :( oh the joys of home-ownership! there is always something broken or in need of repair! i will be praying for guidance for you as you try to decide if this is something you should go ahead with or not. loves!
