Nancy:

Sorry about missing the lender part. Me thinks similar to what was stated above. Cottage/Ranch without seeing the property. In our area we sometimes have a manufactured home with stick-built constructed around it. I call them stick/manufactured and then explain. Part of my curiosity in my earlier post was the purpose of the appraisal. I know for a remodel but why do they need an appraisal?

Larry,
Asset management/estate planning. This is one of three properties that I'm appraising for this client. This one is owned as a privacy buffer and place for the "caretaker" (I use the term lightly) to live.

Dee Dee,
FUBAR is the best one yet!! :lol: :lol: But I probably don't want to use that with this particular client. She might not be amused. On the other hand, I could just say "Dee Dee made me do it!!" :lol: :roll:

Daniel,
POS went right over my head. :?: :?:

Chris,
That's exactly what it is, but you can't tear them down. If you do, the county will force you to move the house back from the waterfront. If you "remodel", it's OK.....and it's funny how, somewhere during the middle of construction an unremediable fault shows up in all those old walls.....carpenter ants, powder post beetle, insufficient structural strength.......so that all the walls end up being new when it's all said & done. Just a little game that gets played with the shoreline management act.

Tim,
The addition is bigger than the cottage. We're talking 2300SF here and boy is this thing UUGGGGHHLLLLEEEEE. Whew!

I use the word "Rambler" for a design that was built one room at a time or started a specific design and then as a child appeared a room was added, then grandma moved in, so another room was added, then they decided they needed a family room, now they need a sewing room, oops the grandkids moved in, so another room gets added---so the design then becomes Rambler.

This whole thread really tickled me when I needed it. Just got done balancing the check books. 8O

Since Daniel hasn't jumped in with his explaination yet, pardon me if I clarify the ackronym (sp?)- one too many beers on a Saturday afternoon with unexpected dropbys....Geez. I re read that and wonder what will become of my check book. 8O :lol: Thank goodness for the Quicken. Least wise I don't has to think too much!

POS= piece of s....

Try this:

1 story frame construction with functional depreciation for non-conforming floor plan and less than market acceptable appearance.

If it is on good water, the replacement process (bulldoze the old one down, put up a new, larger house) will take care of it.
