7.

This water heater vent pipe had negative slope and was vented into the masonry chimey with a huge hole in the side. There were bedrooms on the other side of the wall... I shut the water heater off immediately!!




Inside chimney




8.

Here is an old brick built tuck-under garage. Note that the floor is created with poured concrete over steel joist. The owner had a wood burning stove below which heated the lower level. All the moisture/condensation from the stove has caused Major Corrosion to the joist, literally eating them away. Would you park your car in this garage?

9.
Gas boiler and water heater and NO CO2 detectors OH MY!




10.

The TPR or TPV seems to be self replicating. Like an amoeba.

11.
More deck issues.They sure know how to build them here. NOT!!

12.

Holy hack job, Batman! Not sure if they were installing plumbing pipes or framing a window

13.

Front porch

Not sure if owner is this dumb or did it on purpose.

14.
Critters chewed most of the wires up in this attic.

15.

Everyone (at least me) seems to be really busy, more home inspections means more chances of finding the "good" stuff. (or bad stuff, which is good for this thread).
