Keeper Of The Gate

By
Home Inspector with Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC

In new construction the house is open and airy for a few weeks.

Things come and go.  Materials, people, inspectors even.

Somebody needs to watch over all this activity.

Every house should have a Keeper Of The Gate.

Just to make sure.

This Keeper just stayed to herself.

When I got too close she would leave immediately.

But only briefly and would fly nearby to a tree from which she could continue to watch over things, and not be too far away.

Every Keeper Of The Gate should have its own bubble.

Steven - once they put the skin on the outside of the house (fiber cement board I think) and then the insulation, she will not be back.

From my inspection yesterday morning. She stayed very still while I snapped her picture. Robin

Ha!  Instinct!  Don't move and he won't see me.  See?

We have a robin's nest under our deck Jim, which, I think, the same lady returns to every spring.  There are babies there now.

Jay, I used to have one of those on my back porch.  She didn't come back this year - maybe Willie scared her away.

Put out a little welcome mat Pat, and a sign that says, "Pay no attention to the dog behind the curtain..."
