Job site practice limits

Recommended Posts

To quote Eastwood: 'A man's gotta know his limits'.  Do you risk it or do you write up as inaccessible?  I try hard to enter attics because they're good places to find fodder for the report. The one in your photo wouldn't stop me.

Thanks for the replies.

This is the better of the two hazards in the 85 yr old house.

The other was in a room so small there was not a picture angle available.  I did not see a safe enough approach to fit a ladder on or beside either one.  The bad one had a big barrel bolt holding it in the ceiling.  To throw the bolt took a step ladder.  Bolt thrown, the assembly fell in my lap. When I came down I left the junker hanging like a half open mouth.

House offered by a young couple after only six months occupancy.  They likely love those "flip this house" tv shows.
