Houses are expensive :aaa:

House costs are ridiculous.

I've spent close to $10,000 finishing my basement so far, and that's all materials cost. I've done everything myself.

And that's trying to do things cheaply too. I got slate tiles as leftovers from a guy off Kijiji for $30 for about 45 sqft; my shower base and doors were bought from a wholesaler for $800, which is down from $1600 or some from HD or Lowes, and my wife and I use coupons for 20% off supplies whenever they come up.

$2000 for flooring, $1000 for wood and drywall, $1000 for electrical, $4000 for the bathroom ($800 shower, $200 under floor heating, $500 plumbing, $700 vanity/sink, $200 toilet, $500 tiles for floor and shower, $250 electrical and lights, $200 decor, etc)

Mind you, I've been buying nice things, and doing everything overkill, but it's still expensive.

I wish there was free dump day around here. I would take the day off work and empty my basement.

I'm actually kinda curious as to what goes inside house inspector's mind. Would you highlight some things in the picture?

I think all the wiring and plumbing on the outside of the house is a pretty big flag.

That's a very interesting idea, especially given the fact that I have a pickaxe and the old washing machine has it coming.

That sounds like the best solution right there.
