Image Description: The lowest piece of black drain line in this picture is the handy work of a not-so-handy homeowner.  It didn't just slip.  Yes, ladies and gentlement, the home owner installed the line with an uphill slope without, it appears, questioning whether water can actually flow up hil...

Image Description: these people knew how to have fun at the home inspection.  I joined in: this was the front page of their inspection report.  Apparently they decided that if the buyer won he would only have to pay a 0.00001% commission.  I can't remember who one.  :)~ -- Justin Nickelsen, Nick...
