We completed the home inspection and based on the seller's disclosures the findings were unsurprising. The home may require tenting for pests and some dry rot, plumbing and electrical repairs will need immediate attention before we can start on any cosmetic work i.e. new floors,light fixtures and appliances. The roof looks good for another decade. Not bad for a 78 year old log cabin in the redwoods! Below are more photos, as promised, of the interior and a diagram of the floor plan.

All the paneling is redwood.

I altered the above floor plan to show one of the immediate projects which is to convert Bedroom 1 into a dining room with french doors to the front deck.
Please stay tuned for future photos and updates on the transformation as well as design inspirations and ideas for this project.
