Wow I honestly didn't expect to get this much feed back or offers to help!
Thank you all in advance!
I guess I should start from the beginning with this house.
First off I dont have a regular church to attend with my family her locally. My main pool of experience is from my reserve unit personnel. The problem comes with finding people that are near me.
Anyways on to the house.
From what I have been told by neighbors who have lived on the street all their lives, this house was built in the late 20s early 30s. It still has all the old Knob/Tube wiring with some jury rigged in new stuff here there. The house has spent most of its life as a rental. The kitchen was extended out the back of the house, central air and heat was added to the house. Also the fire place was converted I think from an old coal stove to the gas that it has now. It is super small, from all the reading I have done on it points to that conclusion. The water heater was moved outside into a little shack thing that I recently had to have rebuilt when the water heater was replaced. Vinyl siding was added to the home some time in the 80s from what I was told as were the windows. The roof was supposedly done a couple years before I bought the place. The bad thing is all of those things listed above were all done with no regard to quality or they are simply way beyond time for replacement. I have no idea how long new windows and siding should last on a house nor shingles. Some of the siding slides down during bad storms, the roof leaks sometimes during bad storms so i have some drywall ceiling that needs replacing inside. A friend and I ripped out the old cast iron tub as well as a window that was installed at waist level in the bathroom. We installed a new surround and tub as well as floor under the tub. There was a lot of rot around the window and under the tub. I think one of the major reasons rot and water issues are so bad is that the house has no eves at all and only a couple storm drains that sag though i have cleaned them and added more screws to help hold them up. I can upload pictures links if anyone would like better reference to the mess that is this house.
Again thank you in advance to all for any specific tips or where to start with all of this. Oh also the main breaker panel was upgraded and is brand new. It was installed as part of the closing conditions.
