About the Episode:
So you bought an old house. A REALLY old house. But you’re not totally sure how old it actually is.

- How NOT to barter canned goods for old house information
- Why your local records office is a possible treasure trove of information (and dusty cards)
- What I’ve learned about my house’s builder and his family
And so much more!
