The House is Going to Need a Bit of Work

It is not as though I would have to worry much about this place if it were in great all around shape, because if that were so it would not be in the realm of the possible for a person of my current means. This place looks a bit like a deathtrap to be honest, the professional electrician I know looked at the wiring and told me that only an idiot would have used it in it’s current condition. I am not sure when it was built, but it was probably around fifty years ago or some such thing. It was definitely not made with the current electrical codes in mind. Even I could look at the place and tell that it was not all that safe or even nearly ready for the sort of things that you need with a modern home. This is the level of power usage that people would have found adequate around half a century ago perhaps.

The house has been vacant for a half a decade from what the neighbors tell me. Right now it is in the outer suburbs, but it was obviously a country home when it was built. Obviously the city was about one third the size it is now back then. In fact there was not even a little town or village here when this place was built. It is not going to be efficient to use it in it’s current condition either. The thing to do is to gut the place and start all over from scratch and that was what I had planned from the moment I looked at the place. I gave the seller a price offer based on what it would cost me to fix it up and they took it, probably glad to be rid of it.
