Here's To You, Mr. Handy Home Owner?!

Reblogger Robert Butler
Home Inspector with Aspect Inspection

The photo says it all!  Why do you need to get home inspection?   Look at the photo.

In fact there are some guys (not electricians) who can do it right. But how do YOU know them?

A qualified or liscenced tradesman - contractor has been verified to an acceptable established standard. THAT's how you know.

Here's to you Mr. Why-Pay-For-An-Electrician-DIY-Handy-Man-Home-Owner! Why ask for help when you can "get 'er done" all on your lonesome with some wire nuts, speaker wire, and just about anything else you can find!? After all, in Vietnam you *were* an electrician (you worked on one part of one kind of plane, thus ensuring your ability to do all phases of home construction and residential electrical work). And who needs a cover. Nope, just let the air in: perhaps it will keep the wires cool. Here's to you! I LOVE the creativity of people! This is almost artistic! :-)Vancouver Wa Home Inspector, Portland Oregon Home Inspector

As a home inspector with Ontario Home Inspection Services ( www.ontariohomeinspectionservices.ca ) we see this type of thing all the time.  What were they thinking???  This picture is the best example I've ever seen as to why people definately need a home inspector.

Thanks for the picture!  It made my day!

Additional Information

Usually I'm presenting an aspect of home maintenance, value improvement or 'how too' instructions to feature best practice ways to do things around building and property issues. Some times it's building tech history or how thing came to be as they are, the back story on terms, expressions and phrases. I keep track of the strange, the unique, the special and interesting things I get to see, including the dangers. These are filed as OMGs. OMGs always have photos, so I share the file with you from time to time. The rest come out of thin air. More than once I start writing a comment on someone else's blog and end up inking a whole new blog. Am I inspired or am I ranting? You can decide.
