I live in League City in the old part of town. My home was built in 1922. It's a little over 1900 sf. I'm currently raising 5 small children in it. It needs piers for sure. When the kids walk or run upstairs - it shakes and the windows rattle downstairs. The windows probably all need to be redone - the wind goes right through them. No insulation. The tile in the downstairs bathroom has fallen out and I'm pretty sure I'm getting a good case of mold in the upstairs bathroom. Lots of work to be done. But, it's our home. We asked the kids if they wanted to leave and the boys said no. We're happy here - but c'mon....I need some help! WHO or HOW would I go about getting someone to come out here and do projects on this? I will have to sell if I cannot find someone willing to take on these projects. I could refinance and get everything done at once - but not sure I want to do this. I'd rather look at getting it fixed one step at a time - piers/joists/windows/etc...etc... ANY recommendations would be sure beneficial. I'm sure there are still those who like working on the older homes and would like to take on extra projects for extra money. Thanks all - this is my first post - it's a doozy - maybe I can find some success here and we'll post before/after photos! I'm willing to do anything to just get it fixed.
