    Walked around the outside of the house only to discover the same problem out there.
    Now I have to spray the whole outside of the house in flex seal too.

    It's beyond me at this point.
    Im done giving a rat's dick bout it.
    My gf has gotten her moneys worth many times over out of her house.
    I know enough about foundations to know that I don't know enough about foundations.
    I saw a house today that had its foundation in such bad shape it literally caved in under the house and I could see into the basement through a huge fucking hole.
    She wants to fix her house up and dump money into it but I've seen enough in the few cluster fuck projects that I barely ever got started before deeply regretting beginning them.
    Houses can last a long long time but this ones over 100 years old already and there is just no bringing it up to modern anything.

    So far I've found the electrical is so old and fucked it needs a good bit redone.
    The walls are fucking plaster.
    There is no insulation.
    And the foundation is crumbling.
    No attic access so who knows up there.
    And to be honest in 30 years I would be surprised if it still has anyone at all living in it.

    My only goal now is to deal with it using a blind eye and save money to get us out of here before the kid starts school.

    The kind of work my gf wants to do is in the tens of thousands of dollar range and it's seriously just not worth doing.

    You have to take ALL the plaster off, then fix the leaks and install long vertical wood strips and put drywall over that.

    Hey, no need to go to extremes. You could just tie them behind your back, or just wear oven mitts permanently.

    Take the sliding frames out of the window frames and take them to a window and doors company and they'll put new glass in it.

    I'm going to try and get the frames out this afternoon so I can take them to get new glass put in this week.
    I'm hoping I can get them out and they are not too bad off.
    If they are fucked I'll probably get some plexi glass and half ass a window out of that.
    Like I said earlier, I've come to the conclusion my money is best kept in my pocket.

    As long as the vertical and horizonal extrusion is intact, and not all bent and warped, they should be able to put them on some new glass in a matter an hour, if you go to the right place. I used to be a window and door manufacturer. A glazier for many years.

    I sure as hell don't want to learn to install windows even though I really want to learn to install windows.

    They basically just pop in and out of the square hole. The trick is breaking the seal on the caulking, or whatever they used to seal the unit in. Once you break the seal all around, they just come out in one unit. Then you can buy another unit same size, pop it in, and reseal it.

    As for that wall, all that plaster has to come off. Tap it with a sledge hammer until it's all off, then use your sealant spray and put up some thin wood straps to affix your drywall to.
