I started this inspection at 10AM. I finished the inspection at 2 PM. I started the report at 3PM and just got done at 7PM.
This house had more systems then the norm.
3 fireplaces including a wood burner.
A basement & more crawl spaces then I have ever seen. The basement was in the middle & the crawls went around each side & the front & there was a crawl off a crawl. I could not get in this area as the access had a pipe running through the middle. Area was also F uped as the floor, insulation, flex vents were messed up.
Home had a forced warm air furnace, wall heater, boiler.
First metal roof with no gutters. (Except for a section about 10 ft long)
Plumbing & drainage were F uped. Everything was old & leaking.
** Anybody have any good report disclaimers when there are numerous plumbing issues?**
Dryer vented under the deck and the sump was covered by the laundry sink.
The report took for ever as I had to add FPE, metal roof, crawl area, pictures.
I also did a radon & WDI.
8 hours is about 2 X the normal inspection. I am glad I am done.
Thanks for listening.
Yesterdays inspection had an alligator, Hot tub & wood burner in a garage.
The gator was hissing at me. It was about 3 feet long.
