I worked on a similar restoration project last year. I observed the same thing by looking at how old the wood on the flooring is. The moment you put an AC unit, it will suck up moisture from under causing condensation and the wood to get damp. It could happen very quick, specially if you have vinyl or even tile over the wood where is does not allow it to vent.
While your at it, consider reinforcing the floor joist and replacing the flooring materiel with 3/4" plywood. It will cost you more later on.

The only projects I really have left is finish my small laundry room in the shed. The front and back porch along with fence. There are probably a few punch list task that need to be done but I need my laundry room operable so we can move in there so that's my main priority right now. getting there slowly but surely

Congratulations on a work in progress.
I purchased a house from a fellow 2cooler and had it moved to some property we own.
My plan was to rent it to our domestic help and her family.
My wife intervened and we sold it to our domestic help and her family...
We tote the note... he is a carpenter, so that took the work off of me.
