The rest of the story: It’s a 20 year old mid-priced home, ~3,600 sf, two storey brick colonial in an upscale neighborhood. Probably would sell for about $375k or so. It was across the street from today’s inspection. Sorry for the crappy photos, shot them thru double paned windows and there were reflections.
1.The complete interior and some of the exterior window trim was completely gutted.
2.How would you like to back out of that right side garage half asleep in the morning…you’d get quite a jolt I think (photo in post #1)
3.All drywall, fixtures, flooring, insulation, wiring, A/C condensing units, etc gutted.
4.Signs on garage doors say “Ozone in Use, Do Not Enter” or something to that effect.
5.Side yard was extremely wet, marshy and water dripping off the roof at 11:00 am (not dew)
6.City of Austin construction Permit in front window expired a month ago. No apparent recent construction activity.
7.No soot or any signs of smoke or fire damage on the exterior or the windows.
8.Interior studs have been painted with the silvery paint used to cover fire damage.
OK, some things suggest fire, others don’t. We’ve speculated fire, mold, meth/crack but I’m really kind of baffled. Any thoughts? I’m just curious, I don’t need to know anything for sure.
