That's Hamilton unless you want to be friend with Lisa Lewis..

..yep..just a stroll from the river, but only a few steps downstairs to the sex shop...perfect!

Wonder if they'll have this fun:

I knew that it would be a problem but I just didn't think it would be that bad.

I asked the Remax lady to find out about weathertightness from the seller, so I could get everything repaired before winter (purchased back in March). They swore that "no only a little dampness from the shower and bathroom in the South East corner" according to ReMax lady. "It's all weathertight" she says. Lying old bags.

ed: Now have total 6 roof leaks.
Kind of glad it's happened to me, as at least I can handle it, fix it even if it is a little cowboy style. Lost a few books and DVD's most of the other items might dry out ok.
But if some young couple or retired people had bought the place they'd be really in the stew. At least I can run around and just bung holes into the ceiling to control damage, most people wouldn't be too keen to do that and would risk whole panels collapsing.
And the digging up of the non-working drains will cost me only a fair bit of pain and feet up for a couple days. not so for most home buyers.....

...who was it that was talking about "not having the "feeling of home ownership"? Mate, come on round, I've got a shovel and a BBQ there's enough "home ownership" for both of us. Oh, hot waters out too, so we'll have to pop to another mate down the roads for a shower after.

Again thankful it was me that bought, as first thing I did was rip out all the old fuses and put in modern breakers and excellent earth, far less likely to create wall fires if moisture gets in the wall cavities. some folk got no respect for what they pass to others....
