Q. Balcony - what is under the decking material? I did mention that the opening under the railing is a safety concern for small children.
Siding - Lets be a cheap *** and only do the front & side cause no one will ever look!!!
Garage - Lets just attach the garage to the ground with no foundation & we will replace all the damage framing at the back but we will not install a gutter & spout so the new owner can replace all the framing material.
Just thought I would share.
