Some photos from our inspection a few weeks ago. Brick isn't finished because of the rain over the last month, but otherwise the house isn't far away. Probably 4-6 weeks…

We have a 7k flooring pack as well. Kind of hoping it's not more than a 3-4k upgrade. If you find it, we'd love to know ahead. Thanks!
