A few years ago, I took over a house that was in shambles. Nothing had been done to the house in decades. One of the bathrooms hadn’t been used in years, the basement was covered in mold, the kitchen sink was broken due to a plumbing issue, the ceiling had caved in one of the bedrooms, some of the walls had water damage, the original windows were still there, etc. The most comical of all things was someone had boarded up a window in the upstairs bedroom because they didn’t want to take the air conditioner out. Mind you, this air conditioning unit was ancient. It frightened me.
