It’s amazing hoe much stuff goes into keeping a house standing and in good condition. At the same time, it’s so easy to let much of that go since it’s “not important” at the moment.
That’s when you get to where we’re at. You have a front porch that’s eating itself and various bits of the indoors doing the same. We put down a layer of thick paint to hold the porch together; it lasted a year. Now we have a slab of OSB holding things up. :-/
We’re also pricing out wood and “wood” to replace it all.
Time to pay the piper.
