    The painters went a little overboard with the electric panel and kitchen exhaust fan.

    As of 10-15 I'm out of the gig. I'll be 65 in April. Big insurance check due on that date so I just made it cover tail insurance. Yes, I'm in pretty good health, but I don't want to wait till that changes which is obviously coming up in the next 10 years or so. I must say that this forum has been the best teaching aid I have seen in my entire life. I started with the CREIA one since I live in CA, but the arrogance of the main contributors sent me searching. You all have been fantastic. It's been the best job I have ever had. My clients are nice because they want me to find all the bad points and think that I am on their side, which is 100% true. I get paid by the end of my time at the inspection and always got the report out within 24 hours, especially with your help. The home owners are nice because they want me to take it easy on their house. And the Realtors that hate my guts are oh so sweet at an inspection. Of course you all know this. Our local newspaper has a readers choice award deal each year for best this, that, and the other thing. I won that for HI the last two years. Must have pissed off a lot of Realtors. I though they would have figured out a way to shut me out this last year. ha Offer still goes, if you are ever in my neighborhood (Eureka CA) and want to go rafting, mtn biking, kayaking, look me up.

    In the scheme of things home inspectors in Texas are small potatoes. The "zoids" and their state and national organization have all the control and power. The 'voters' (IE: homebuyers) don't want to get caught up in such petty things with TREC at the state level and the legislature. They only deal with an inspector when they buy their home (if then) and they follow along (in most cases) who their 'zoid' sends them to. Such an effort would also take time and money ... none of which comes easily for the small inspector community in Texas. Most of us who have dug in and fought over the years are now at the "winding down" stage of inspecting and are mostly just tired of the continuing b.s. from TREC and the legislature and the 'zoid' organizations.

    I call Phillip Smith. If he smells it, it goes in the report.
