I hope no one turns this light on.

Those pics are too easy… this defect would break the bank to fix, and are the kinds of defects to be concerned with.
One of many horror stories from recent inspections.
Inspecting Norfolk and Hampton Roads
One side looks ok but the other side (south) is a mess. Notice something missing? Garage is 6 years old. Taken on April 3rd 2012

I felt uneasy being in this crawlspace. Client wanted to know why there was such a large slope to the floor.

Checkout the balconies on the right side of the house.
Self insulating crawlspace. It’s all the rage :razz:
This column has 4 bolt holes, in the picture you see2 BUT you need to know those 2 are only finger tight as I found them on the floor and put them there, thus there really is NO connection between the col um and the beam.:shock:
These are some great pics! Let me add a couple more. I was at this 2 1/2 storey home this last Monday. The main beam is undersized and compressed and the supporting columns are rotted.

If you can’t see it clearly, a wine barrel is holding up the main beam in the home. The only way I can imagine them doing this is by first drinking all the wine and then trying to figure out a way to support the home. http://www.nachi.org/forum/attachments/f13/54634d1334961598t-requesting-best-defect-pictures-april-img_2335.jpg
