Went to the Dade County buildings department, was told any plans between 1961 and 1972 were on microfiche but those were "eaten up" by parasites and all gone. Nothing is left.
Last owner is an elderly who had a stroke and cannot remember much, not even the combination to the floor safe in the house, or much of anything. Looked through the house and no plans.
Tracked down original owner who is the architect, says he has retired and closed his business and all plans were thrown out.
Then I started to trace the mortgage lenders...too bad all of those BLAH BLAH BLAH Savings and Loan Associations no longer in business, only one survived and have nothing older than 1996 at all.
Any idea of where else I might look to locate any plans that might show sewer, water, electrical, structural, there are a lot of conduits in the house for alarms, intercom, central vac, electrical...now everything has to be done by trial and error and if we have to do any remodeling we have to hire an architect to redo the plans...not looking forward to it.
Thanks in advance,
