They moved out when? A look at days gone by.

I was coming back from a inspection when I happened by the place. I could only imagine the stories it could tell.

All I could think of Rob Thomas in Bristol Tennessee.

He do'es a lot of barns and homes from days gone by.

Sorry Rob I had to use the line.

There was a farmer there coming out of the woods on a tractor.

I quickly stopped and asked if I could take a couple of pictures of the old place.I asked him when was the last time anyone lived there, he said back in 1969 was the last year and he lived there.

He said it was fine and to be careful.

Then he was gane as fast as he was there. Was he a ghost?

Old home in the woods.

Good roof and very good framing. I'm thinking like a contractor now.

But the interior has a ot of work to do as you can see.

View of interior of old home.

The home was built in the time around 1910.

His family lived there until 1969 when they built a bigger home nearby.

Have a great evening everyone.

You just had to use Rob's line for that one. I agree everytime I see a place like that I think of Rob as well. Interesting little place.

Clint, does not look too much different from some of the beauties you are called upon to inspect. This time, however, you do not have to report any negative comments! Enjoy your day. We are going to attempt to stay dry between the rain drops in Southwest Florida!

Hello Cindy,

I would have liked to talk to the farmer a while longer, but you know how the farmers are. If there's daylight they have to make hay. LOL

Have a good day and week ahead in Johnson City.

Hello Edward and Ceilia,

I guess not. It probably has happened over a long time of free nights.

Thanks for the comment.

Hello Patricia,

No I did'nt. The farmer said I could take a few pictures and that's all I did.

Here there are a lot of these old structures around. If the county got onto the farmers there would be a rebellion. LOl

Have a great day in Flower Mound, Texas.

Hi Conrad,

I was thinking how solid the place still was after all this time. A good roof and solid framing. A very good start.

Even the foundation was good.

Have a good day in Massachusetts.

Hi Wayne,

No not that bad. LOL

This one would have been a walk away. if the inspection would have been for stability. Then it still would have passed. Who would have thunk it?

Keep dry my friend in Fort Myers, Florida.

Sure is a shame to see the old place in such poor condition inside Clint, amazing it is still standing after all those years.

Clint, I surprised you didn't fall through the floors? I like the roof line of this house a nice high pitch with lots of attic space. Thanks for stopping and sharing this.

Clint, i always like the good bones on a home...sad to see a home in such disarray...at least the owners should move it or tear it down.
