In the midst of our property search we came across a log cabin that suits our needs. It is 20 years old and consists of a 3000 square foot cabin attached to a 1000 sq ft in law cabin. My inlaws have wanted to downsize for a while and it is perfect for them. I have spent all summer in negotiation with the owners and it seems like the deal is going to go through. but soon we will enter home inspection and I am concerned as to what things I should pay particular attention to in a 20 year old home. The owners had quarterly termite inspections. I noticed a rather significant carpenter bee issue this spring. The owners have credited us 600$ to remedy it. Does anyone have any other ideas of potential issues I should investigate?
Also, we want to add a bed and bath addition onto the inlaw cabin. I was going to go with stick built construction with log siding to make it match.
Any and all help is appreciated!
