Hi to all,
Behind (and dangerously underneath) this live Oak is a horrendous looking Spanish Revival inspectors nightmare:
Just below this Arborists wet dream (to the left of the main part of the home is the (not so) great room:
Did you happen to notice the angle of the windows? maybe not so I’ll show you a view from inside;):
Did you detect from the image that the left corner of the room appears to be higher that the right? If so congrats :mrgreen:
Here’s a close up of the tree and its relationship with the (soon to be ex) structure:
Now we all know that tree roots cause damage, didn’t we all see what those “Ents” did in Lord of the Rings, but for crying out loud man this sucker lifted the corner of a 30 by 15 ish room over 6 inches!
Now thats just mean!
Needless to say, this place not only needs the services of a good Structural Engineer, a brave Arborist and probably a skilled bulldozer operator. Also should anyone seriously want to purchase this 3/4 million dollar nightmare, they will also require the services of a good roofer, a great coppersmith (those gutters used to be a work of art), a better than average electrician, a very fine restoration master joiner/cabinet maker, a good plumber (sans Saws-all) a real plasterer (no not a dry waller) and about $250k to glue it all back together. :shock:
Needless to say it’s back owned, I suspect that situation isn’t going to change anytime soon :twisted:
BTW, all of the doors and windows stick and have odd gaps around them, I hate to bother any potential buyer with these trivialities, but can help wondering if the issues are connected?
