Information needed, may buy this house
Hi, I am a single parent of a 'tween', and am finally able to buy a very small house (maybe-- if my offer is taken). Its very small--800 sq ft-- but a relatively unscathed 1906 simple interior-- meaning the hardwood floors are okay, and the molding is good. Its in fairly decent condition for the price range. The neighborhood is quiet.
On the flip side, it has really ugly white vinyl siding, so I cant see the condition of the wood siding underneath (it also has a layer of shingles). I didnt get a good look at the basement, which was REALLY tiny (enough space for the furnace, water heater, and w/d) because there was no light, and we had no flashlight (but plan to go back).
The hardwood floor in the LR/DR slightly bow up-- is this a structural problem?? Thats my really big concern!!
Another question is: the shape of the exterior is really odd, anyone have any idea of style? (I guess I am having trouble posting the pic-- can anyone help with that?)
