Home Inspection

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.

Rear Exterior
Backyard(perfect for a pool)
Great Room
 An old wood burning stove to the right helps heat the cabin during the winter season
Love the open space with the stone fireplace and high ceilings.
Another view of the great room with 2 of the 3 bedrooms to the left of the front door. 
All the paneling is redwood.

Kitchen (more redwood!)

Bathroom(shower stall directly opposite of the commode)

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.

I love it; what a charming cabin. However, I do not like the formal dining room --- I thought that was my bedroom!!!

Thanks for share this post I also share with you some more traveling tips hope this helpful for you Assess the severity of the problem. Are there a few easily filled depressions, or does the area around the house require major regrading? Order a delivery of fill dirt (unless you have some available on your property) and fill in the small depressions if these are your only problems. You can probably find your fill at a local construction site or at a local nursery or landscaping supply house. Allow the dirt to settle, and check back in a few days (after a rain). If the area is still depressed, add more fill. Consult with an excavation contractor or a landscaper with grading experience if your yard requires more extensive work. The job may require the operation of heavy equipment or the installation of foundation drains and other projects beyond the ability of most home owners. Discuss options with the contractor. Make sure you discuss the impact of the work on your property, such as tree removal or damage to shrubs and other landscaping. Be aware that this kind of work will probably cause considerable damage; allow room in your budget for seeding, sod and plantings.
