I agree with you, and Robert's discussion is a good one.
If that paper can be revised to cover the entire area of inspections done by the HI, I would like to see it posted on a page in "Dear NACHI
Joe F has invited me to go along with him during an inspection as an observer, and perhaps through our eyes we both will come up with the items that are to be considered and reported.
However, one home would really not be enough, that's why I asked for a few reports including the electrical area, so I could make comments if necessary.
I have been helping some of the members here in this way through email questions they sent to me. For me this is the best way for me to learn more about your industry.
Also, if an existing service was inspected and passed by the local inspector, and there were no additional permits for any new work that was done, then the only comment is best described by your last paragraph.
Is there a boiler plate list that is available to members in the HI community?
PS: Maybe we could take up Dennis on his offer to tip a few beers and discuss our careers .... like the time I found all of my tools stolen one morning from my truck, or when I ate about four pounds of freshly cooked shrimp in a restaurant I was wiring in NYC years ago!
