@MaRina ~ our house is 16 years old so.....there are cracks in the stucco that has been filled; some parts have been patched with mesh to prevent further cracking; and then a spray coat of paint.  Next, garage doors, trim, and doors painted....oh and new light fixtures.


@MickD wow cracks after 16 years must be from tremors. Ours is 18 we don't have any yet! 

Your house is huge. We lived in a two story 2500 square foot before buying our single story,my knees didn't like stairs.

@MaRina ~ I really didn't notice all the cracks until....well they were patching them.  Many neighbors had filed a class action lawsuit against the developer and the builder for not adequately landscaping the dirt before the houses were built.  one neighbor can't use their pool because there is a huge crack down the middle.  another neighbor has a sinkhole in their backyard...another couldn't us their office as the foundation....etc....we got off very lucky!!!!


@MickD they definitely cut corners building homes. I hope your neighbors win big!

@MaRina ~ I don't know why the cracks....probably due to both earthquakes and crappy land development.  We've lived in this house exactly 10 years and one day....30 years to pay it off.....I'm dying in this place!  It's 2450 sq ft. perfect size and great layout...my dream home.   oops 2450 not 3450.....jeez wut and idiot......

@MaRina ~ the previous owners next to us were in the lawsuit, but sold the house. and I haven't heard from anyone else....kind of a sore subject.....I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't settled yet....I think the suit was filed about 5ish years ago.  Definitely don't build houses like they used to....

@MaRina ~ My son is 16 and has plans to move to CO., but I don't think it's gonna happen that fast.  Graduate, college or trade school, then move.  I think CO is too far away....he's just not that mature...oh and he needs his driver's license too!!!  I just expect him to live with us and take care of us in our old age.....bwuahahaha.....

Lord woman ... stop the paint fumes and wine right now!!!!  He's gonna' move, sell your house and stick your buns in a home.  Well, that's what my DD says so I think we will all suffer the same fate.  LOL  If we are lucky we'll all be together and Lord help our kids.  ROTFL!!!!!!!!

 

Payback may be a lot of fun. Smiley Wink

 

@MaRina ... I never went to any of my DD's jobs until I was invited.  I didn't want to make her nervous.  She told me later that some she was glad and others she wished I had.  Danged if you do and danged if you don't.  Smiley Happy

He'll mature fast once he gets his licence. So watch out then their not babies anymore.

The guy that owns the production company thought our son was 20. He is extremely mature for his age and looks it to because he has a nice trimmed beard.
