In multiple rooms, the ceilings were falling down. The electric system did not meet local safety codes and the glavanized plumbing pipes were badly corroded. The water heater was rusted and none of the appliances were salvageable. My friend and I had a lot of labor ahead of us and needed to complete a considerable amount of the project before winter.
