Repairing a house we don't own

So before we could buy our house, the underwriter wanted us to make some repairs to it. Wait what? Being that it was a short sale, the onus was on us, not the seller. If we wanted it, we needed to make the repairs.

Two things in particular:
  • The front porch post was rotting away and needed to be replaced
  • The under house vents had been plugged up with foam, which may be a partial cause as to why there is water under the house.
So, we fixed it.

5 hours later: Voila

Foam removed, new screens added
