Wood foundation

Posted by Tom Lynch on March 22nd, 2000 09:42 AM

I'm considering the purchase of an old home(early 1800s)
that has wood on 1/3 of the foundation. The other 2/3
of the foundation is stone. I've been told the wood is
pressure treated. The basement appears dry, and the
house feels "solid." If I decide to buy this property,
I will have an inspection. In the interim, however,
should this wood foundation raise *major* red flags?
If there is significant restoration involved, what are
estimated costs? I appreciate your advice.
