Looked at an older adobe home. The bermuda grass has defeated the stucco and was actually rooted in the adobe brick. I think this may require a structural inspection? What sayeth the gurus? Man I hate bermuda grass. That stuff is like cockroaches. It will survive a nuclear holocaust.

I would require the inspection. Its obvious there is a breach ... whether it is a problem or not is beyond our capabilities.

NO! NO! NO! That might "Kill the Deal" Put note the natural insulation. That'd be an upgrade!! increase in value.

I sent it in with a CB4. They are going to love that one. Adobe exposed to the rain soon turns to mud and not very structurally sound. Plus that darned grass growing in it was disturbing as well.

Thanks for the input. This one was a little tricky and sure to be sent out for a field review.
