The structural engineer came by yesterday.
The good news? He was able to quickly assess the problem and his visit cost a mere $50 (1/2 hour).
The bad news? There is a structural issue with one of the foundation walls of our condo building.
The good news? Our buyer has not run away, and hopefully once we get this fixed, she'll still buy our condo.
I spent hours cleaning my condo obsessively and worrying about dust and making sure the dishwasher was empty so they could test it and about this little paint chip in the corner... and a wall is falling down in my basement.
Life just likes to find new ways to blindside you, doesn't it?
