  1. Aliens stole her chimneys! (But left the wringer washer.)

    First step would be to fix the… foundation? Pilings? Whatever the proper term is for the pile of rocks/bricks that it’s sitting on. Words are running amok in my brain right now.

    Lots of work to do, but it would be nice when finished. Bonus that there is already a roof on it.

    me thinks a little more than paint needs to be done to this home…you are paying for the land

      Exactly. I have redone a couple houses that require foundation/chimney rebuilds. The cost almost ALWAYS exceeds the value of the structure, unless it’s a fabulous mansion or like that. Rebuilding just ONE chimney last year cost $15,000.00!

    Those foundations have done a fine job for the past one hundred and eighty years and I would not disturb them. The house is not compromised. It is actually rare to find a home this age in its original state. To the purist, it is a boon. Building a chimney in Sparta does not require $15k, even using antique brick.
