    Default HELP! Trees in basement?

    My husband and i just put a bid on an 1899 house. Our first! Is it totally weird that there are tree trunks holding up the house alongside metal beams?

    Not completely unusually for a house that age. Get an engineer's report before you actually buy or make the contract dependant upon the inspection. The real concern is the overall structual integrity of the entire foundation (including the trees)of a house that age, but again, a certified Home Inspector/engineer will be able to check these things out.
