Per the inspection and pest report, all put together, the approximate cost of fixing this was found to be $25,000.

How much will it really cost...?
For the person asking this Q: $75,000 if they hire good contractors and do it at all one time.
For the person being asked this Q: $40-50,000 (or more).

The part you can really tell is the family room.

We lifted the house and put in a basement.

The ceiling of the family room has exposed beams, they are just cut big trees.

You can see the lodging brands.
