Monday was the home inspection. In fact I managed to get all of the necessary inspections scheduled on the same day. Of course they always find things but in general nothing insurmountable. Oh but here's the really big thing and I deserve an attagirl.
The house has a dirt crawl space. If you don't know what that means - its a space under the house that is 2 feet high and pretty much can't be used for anything unless you collect spiders. Then it might be a lovely home for them. Fortunately, the guy who owns this house has done things like applying vapor barriers and whatnot to reduce the risk of mold (and to make it slightly less icky). Needless to say this was definitely a part of the inspection and I sucked it up and went in with the mold inspector to get a lesson on crawl spaces. Surprisingly it wasn't too bad. If this was a scary movie right about now the "dunt dunt... dunt dunt... dunt dunt" music would start to play. Later that morning the home inspector, who was a different guy than the mold inspector, also went into the crawl space, except that he found an additional section that neither the mold guy or I found. THAT section is way in the corner of the house and unfortunately there are a couple of fixes that must be made before we close. Now the seller, he agreed to make the fix without batting an eye. Herein lies the problem, he'll make the fix and before the closing there is a walk thru to make sure that everything is acceptable... which means I will have to crawl into the damnable crawl space and crawl to the far back corner to verify that he made the fixes. Oye
Oh you can bet I'll be brave and I'll do it, but I'm going to want a drink afterward. A drink and a shower, not necessarily in that order.
Otherwise, I'm starting to get excited about the house.
