I live in Philadelphia, we bought a row-house (dates around 1900) two years ago.
Although it was restored just before we bought it, several issues are starting to show up. (Speculator/owner must have chosen a cheap/bad GC I guess)
I will be posting questions soon.
MaxMal, good to see you. Bummer when a new purchase starts to shake out. You will find so much valuable information here. I can spend hours on the search feature, totally wonderful information, let alone getting to know some of the contributors on the site. Some threads are total entertainment>>good info and humor and fist fights (thank goodness no physical contact!!!!!!!!) You will learn lots!!!!!!
Good Luck with the not so new, but needy, home. Hope to see you around!!!!
