Tuesday March 16, 2010-Inspection Over

I was too tired to post last night.

On the way to Smiths Falls yesterday, we drove to see Wolford Chapel which is just outside Smiths Falls. It's a pretty little church, well kept, but doesn't appear to be used right now. I'll try to remember to post a photo later as we're getting ready to get out of the house. It's Wednesday and the house cleaner is due to arrive shortly.

We had the house inspection today. The inspector was very thorough and great at answering questions. He went over any problems while he was going through the house, then went over all of them again. He printed up his report while there and we were able to bring it home with us.

We ran into a few problems, nothing really significant (in my husband's opinion). After all the house was built circa 1945 so you have to expect some things I guess. I thought the list was long but Gordon felt that it was manageable and since most of the problems will be his responsibility with me doing the nagging, I guess that's ok, LOL. The rear part of the house was roofed in 2001 but the front and the garage need to be done probably before winter so we're still in negotiations with the seller about the roof. There were shingles in the garage and we were going to accept that and we would pay to have the labour done. Turns out there are only some shingles for the house, the rest are for the seller's hunting camp.

So we're still in limbo but hopefully we can come to a resolution.

The sellers want the closing to be May 15th as that is the earliest they can get into the rental that they found. Bummer! But it will hopefully give us some time to get into the RV and get it ready for sale. Anyone want a nice Titanium 5er built in Ontario?
