  1. Dun, kaput, washed up

    Thanks all!! Here was a reenactment of that crash John, 10 months later. Fb me if you want to see what some retired HI's do, or not.
  2. Dun, kaput, washed up

    I hope my friends do. Some people in my neighborhood gave/give me as much credit as if I had become a Realtor. ha.
  3. Dun, kaput, washed up

    It's crazy. My business is finally going primo, after just 11 years. If I were 35 I would be in like Flint. But, being out like Flint aint so bad either.
  4. 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.
  5. Almost didn't go under

    All the doors swing out on their own. A qualified licensed bulldoser operator could make the proper repairs.
  6. I'm thinking this probably isn't ideal.
  7. Outlet shocker

  8. Outlet shocker

    Just above the exterior concrete walkway. Yikes.
  9. Missing sill plate

    There is that. Lots of sill elsewhere. Thanks John!
  10. Two areas where 16 feet or so of sill plate is missing. Is that a problem?
  11. Vent size reduction

  12. Vent size reduction

    Seems like this vent should not be reduced as it rises above the house, right?
  13. TPR drain interconnected with drain pan's drain

    Almost looks like PVC on the TPR line. And shouldn't be reduced right where that T connects..
  14. Aluminum siding sucks heat from the house

    Good statement. Now when it comes to camper shells those aluminum ones are terrible for radiating heat. In the winter. It's better to get outside into a tent than stay on the metal bed with a metal shell.
