Hello permies!

We are considering buying a 25 year old straw bale house in Central Oregon.  A previous potential buyer backed out because they were unable to get insurance from a standard admitted (ie state licensed) insurer.  The current owner's policy was grandfathered in, but no new standard policies are being issued by any insurers I can find.  I am concerned this problem will limit my ability to sell if needed in the future.  

The home has a lot of deferred maintenance.  A new roof needed.  There is a localized area of the wall where moisture readings are 45% and visible mold in the garage.  I am not handy, and not sure how to remediate this.

However, we love the location and would like to make this work.  I would appreciate any thoughts you have for us.

Thank you so much,
Ellen
