we feel pretty lucky at this point. looking through at what other owners have to do, ours is in pretty good shape. plumbing needs a little work but almost everything is in good shape. the stove is missing and it has a newer fridge. the bed (that goucho thing) in the front is gone too, we just put in our old futon with a new matress, works great! repair will be slow going, budget crunch, 4 kids (all boys), three dogs, 4 guinea pigs, three turtles, and a cockateal. whew, im tired thinking about it!
