    It's not a matter of building a home without A/C, it's a matter of the foreclosed homes not having power to run the A/C...at that point, the homes are bredding grounds for mold with all the heat and humidity the way homes are built these days.

    when my parents had their home in florida they would "summerize" it by having the water shut off at the curb box, leaving the a/c on all summer and leaving a key with the neighbor for the "bug man".

    God knows what they would come home to each fall had they not taken those precautions

    Last year I was looking at houses in FL and couldn't believe the great deals on foreclosures...few of them mentioned how long the home had stayed vacant, but my brother warned to be think very carefully about buying a vacant home for just this reason.

    Better off looking for deals in short sales that have remained occupied.

    A realtor warned me about not buying timber framed homes, but frankly, what I've seen of the block and stucco doesn't impress me...a big sponge to soak up the water and no way to ventilate...at least frame homes naturally allow air flow.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    The neighbors that I take care of their home while they are up North (they are only down here a few times a year) asked me a while back to run the water at least once a month, particularly during the Summer months...not to mention make sure the A/C is functioning correctly for this very reason. And the older CBS (from the 40s and 50s) seem to do pretty well, the newer ones, not as much as they tend to skimp on the stucco and the paint.

    The only problem with frame construction after the newer (2002 and up) codes took effect is that they have the framing crew putiing in so many hurricane straps into the wood, that one has to wonder if there is enough wood there to support all the fasteners!

    Some of the problem is that homes are built way to tight these days. Homes dont breath, with the current energy standards a new garage doesnt even breath. This has been discussed among buiders and home inspectors for years, the problem is we really dont have much of a say. What the code says is law.

    And thats about what its worth.

    We looked at a couple of homes in MO that had mold issues. It's a PITA to get cleaned up, especially once it "officially" has mold, you have to have it done professionally.
