House project - exterior

Ahhh, and now for the house......... 
This home has been neglected for many years.  From what we can tell the house was built in the early 70's and was still in the original owners hands.  The woman that lived here lost her husband back in the early 90's and did what she could to keep things up.  From the evidence we can see, she was a hoarder tad eccentric.  They had one daughter who lived in North Carolina and only visited once or twice a year.  After the owner passed, within a year and a half the daughter also passed so we purchased the home from the owners son-in-law and grandson.  

We had to crawl under the shrubs to get in the door when we went to look at it.

There are a number of holes in the side of the house.  
Holes in the house = critters in the house.  :(

 As far as the exterior of the home itself, outside of the holes in the fiberboard siding and a few cracked windows, the house seems structurally sound.  Stay tuned.  Next time, when we take a tour of the interior.
