Electrical problems? I'd say so.

There I was doing another home inspection when I came to the electrical system.

Wow, what a nightmare. They had upgraded the service portion to the home, but never finished the job.

Look to the right and you will see the dreaded "fuse boxes".

Fuse boxes with Extra's

Note the boxes with all the "extras" hanging around. What's with the "in line fuse"?

Yes the boxes were still live and in use. But this was just the start of this wonderful adventure.

Let's see what is in the garage.

See to the right, there are two more of these beauties. A total of five in all.

This home has not been upgraded in the interior of the home since it was built in 1949.

I think the new owners "if they choose to buy" needs a lot of work done.

Hi Al,

I think from all indications the owners are not happy with the report. But on the other hand, the buyers are very happy. The Realtor is happy as well.

By what the buyers said to me yesterday, they are countering the sellers price. With the stipulation that the fuse boxes be replaced with a single main breaker panel.

Plus a few other "fine tunings for the home.

Have a good day by the Sea in Florida my friend.

All mt best, Clint McKie

Another great example of why everyone definitely should get a home inspection! This seems like a mess to clean up

Hi Sylvie,

No matter how much to get the repairs done, they need to be done.

I have not been notified if the buyer bought the home or not.
