  1. Not in flood zone. I actually liove in a flood zone right now which sucks as far as insurance. What do ya mean is Salem any better? I dont live in Salem but outside. Everyone that lives in the farming communities around heres address is Salem.
  2. Do you think itll just need too much? I mean they want 99k and it has 7 acres and several outbuildings that I need. As a matter of a fact those 2 things are the only reason I wanna move. But it seems like I wont be able to get this done the way I want for $100k
  3. Im not allowed to do anything myself or I would be good. As per a 203k loan ONLY a licensed GC can do everything. I went to the basement but it was too dark and smelly to really stay down there
  4. Not yet, I just got approved for the loan yesterday. My issue is I dont wanna spend thousands for all the inspections and find i cant get the house built the way I want anyway and loose out on the $.
  5. Ok maybe I should give a little more info and you guys can help me decide. The house is a cape cod, kitchen and living room too small. Upstairs is perfect but I wont be up there anyway. Smells musty so there could be mold. I LOVE the property and it has the garage I need and several outbuildings. Taxes arent bad either. I would have $100k to do repairs for GC. I COULD add more but I dont want to right now.
  6. this is starting to sound like a bad idea
  7. Well like I said its damp, there was a little puddling but that could be from several things. Yes I understand load bearing walls
  8. Im looking at a house to purchase that needs a little work. It needs a 203k loan so there wont be endless funds. I looked at the house and the downstairs is too small and th ebasement had a little water which made the downstairs smell musty. Now Im hoping the basement was only wet due to power being off, bad gutters, internal leak, or something small as I didnt see any signs of cracks but who knows. So basically I would NEED the bottom bedrooms wall knocked out to make one large room, the kitchen and living room wall knocked out to make a large kitchen, and a living room added to the front of the house. Am I getting too far ahead here? I dont need a huge living room maybe 14' off the front of the house then the width of the house thats maybe 24'. Any tips, help, or off the top of your head estimates would REALLY help me with this decision and would be greatly appreciated. House is in South Jersey 08079 area.
  9. Thats right. Ive roughed it for years and screw that anymore. Everytime I tented it rained all weekend. Dont get me wrong we still go out primitive every now and then but Im too old for that crap all the time anymore. Rather have my stereo and blender pumping. Plus I own a primitive cabin in 2 states when I wanna get in touch with nature.
  10. Thanks guys those are great ideas but at another time. Im talking about camping with my 28ft camper but hiking close by. After a long day of hiking im relaxing in the AC. So far im looking at blue rocks and mountain springs resort in Pa.
  11. Want to go camping with a few friends soon. They wanna do some hiking while were camping. Can anyone recommend a good area to look not far from south jersey? Looked at bushkill falls but its $17 pp just to hike. Dont wanna drive more than 3 hours. Tubing would be good too.
  12. Shawn, that zoagies tray sounds like a good deal. Ive had his shrimp zoagie and it was killer but hows his wings and other stuff? Im picky with my wings.
  13. Oh yea I will be trust me. I got taken HORRIBLY a couple years ago. I had a trip planned and decided a week before we left I wanted a camper instead of tenting it. Drove to Allentown 4 days before to look at a hybrid that was in "perfect" condition. Well it was a total piece of crap but I was desperate since we were bringing first timers camping with us. Didnt look over it very well and got home to start loading it up and noticed SEVERAL things wrong and I mean big things. And I didnt even notice the title was reconstructed til I went to the DMV! It was a VERY expensive and hard lesson to learn but I know what to look for now and to walk away when I need to. These campers are built like total crap btw
  14. Thanx Zeke. Yea I'e been camping my whole life and actually have a nice hybrid camper now. Just looking at a regular trailer and sokmething newer like at least 08+. But it' hard to find a camper without bunk beds and this one is built exactly like I want it. If he would drop it to $5,000 I would make the trip regardless after ij spoke to the DMV but at $7,000 I can find one with a clean title if I look hard enough.
  15. Yea it' a regular rv that he said he lost the title to and had a new title made as homemade. I think I'm gonna keep looking
