I'm surprised your insurance isn't going after his insurance for the primary coverage and why you would have to hire an attorney? Does this have something to do with it being a rental property? Did you make the renter sign a contract? Was damage covered in the contract? Sorry for all the questions but I've considered owning rental properties in the past and this would be one of my major concerns. Best of luck!

I guess that's the horrible thing about stuff like this - no one did anything deliberately, but the consequences are that you have a loss and a huge bill through no fault of your own. Thank goodness for insurance. It's not nice to have to ask them for their insurance details etc, but being 45k down isn't very nice either.

Hope everything goes smoothly and you do get the extra cash.

Insurance companies are the absolute scum of the Earth. They will fight every claim tooth and nail even though they know they should pay it out. I've had to sue insurance companies twice and I don't feel guilty about it one bit. A lady hit me head on back in 2009 when I was going about 45 miles an hour. Progressive was her insurance company and they offered to pay my doctor bills and give $800 for missing work. I sued their asses and got damn near policy limit. It took 2 years of my attorney going back and forth with their attorney to get that. Like I said, they are scum. Bud, go get every penny you can and don't forget about undue stress. Get some money for that too.

Popalock,

Hell ya, completely recovered with the new Knee. I don't even think about it anymore, its completely natural now. Still trying to figure out the timing in the other knee. Hoping to do it later this year or early next.

Cabin is coming along nicely as well. Got through all the insurance red tape and expect it to be done at the end of May or early June. The framing inspection is this week, so the roof should go on and the siding should start this week. Rough in also started. I did well on the personal possessions from the insurance, so have already ordered all the furtniture, hot tub, pool table and the rest of the little things. Everything is picked out as well, flooring, stain colors, lights, plumbing, so now its a what and watch thing.

A few pictures:



Once I get through the cabin rebuild, I can start getting back to work in the basement.

Bud

Glad to hear that you are doing so much better. The "cabin" is coming along nicely as well!

+1 - Absolutely fantastic views and a really sharp design. I hope when you say that you got through the insurance red tape that means the insurance company came to their senses and paid the full replacement cost of the new structure instead of leaving you upside down that $50k.

Doesn't look like a cabin, I know. Wait until the siding goes on, the dovetail joints are on the corners and I get the interior done. You'll see. smile.gif

I went the non-log route this time do to energy efficiency. Its looses a little of that cabin feel, but plan on giving it some character.

Didn't get the extra funding for the building, but I made it up on the personal possessions side. All said and done, it'll cost me some cash, but it's a brand new place, how I wanted to done, brand new mechanicals and brand new furniture, hot tub and pool table. I won't have to do much for the next ten years but enjoy. Sucks to have to go through all that though.

This home is the one you have the theater inside ? or building ? Or this is a second home ?

Second home/rental property. We're about two weeks out now form completion. I'll post some finished pictures when its done. I had an inquiry for a 6mo rental for next year. Amazing.

The new theater (after the move to Knox) is on hold until I get through the cabin build - all the extra funds went in that direction.

Thanks. it's really taken shape. He talked me out of logs, but we did a log veneer siding and they even did the dovetail corners. Here's a couple of recent pictures from a couple of weeks ago while they were still staining. . Amazing how they do them. The interior is all tongue and grove. I'll post more later when complete.




I rent it as well, it does well becuase of the view (at least the last place did, so I expect this place will, too). I go a inquiry today for a six-month rental for next year.
