    Here's what I found at yesterdays inspection. Some ugly, some not so ugly.

    Lint Trap

    In newer townhouses, I've seen where there is a 'clean-out' door about 18 inches below the dryer connection.

    Oil Tank

    What, if anything would you say about this oil tank. The stain is just that, a stain, not wet.
  4. I just got a complete knee replacement on my right knee 4 weeks ago. I got another 8 weeks of rehab. It ain't fun

    Any separation wall or venting issues here?

    At the end of the 2nd article above, there is a link provided. Here's the one about venting; it's a cool video. http://www.elitesoft.com/pub/videos/gasvent/gasvent.htm

    Daikin discussion

    They were installed in the offices on the last school I did 2 years ago. Start-up and trouble shooting was a big problem. There were some internal control problems that took a long time to get parts from the factory. After the initial start-up difficulty, they seemed to be working fine; no call backs from the school.

    Web page

    Thanks to all, I'll try to cut it down over the weekend. Charlie, I was asking about my web page, not my example report. But since you mentioned it, I put the summary at the end, this way you have to at least thumb thru the report to get to the summary.
  10. My website has just been updated (thank you Mike). Take a look at my 'Reports' page and give me an honest opinion. Is it solid or cheesy? I'm try to show potential clients the difference in report 'writing' but don't want it to look cheap. http://aboutthehouseinspections.com/reports/ Thanks

    I like construction; see things 'grow' out of the ground. That's why crossing over to inspections was natural. If I had to do it again, I'm be a police detective; I was always watching Columbo, Banacek, and Ellery Queen. Sorta goes with home inspections; trying to figure things out with not much to go on.

    Draft Hood

    What, if anything would you say about this? I've seen this installed where the opening is on the bottom at a rear venting unit, but not this. Thanks Click to Enlarge 57.01 KB

    Old Zappa

    Jim, I really think you are mistaken. He credits everyone who plays on any album. Name one album without him giving the musicians credit. As far as ego, check this video out and his answer on being remembered.

    Old Zappa

    YouTube is really terrific, there's some clips that show history being made. Here's a audio only of the Montreux Casino Fire (at the end, you can hear the confusion and the announcement that a fire has started) and the following interview Deep Purple's iconic 'Smoke On The Water' is a result of that fire. Anyway, here's a link to my channel and some job video's https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... rmermiller
