The ooh and aarrgghh moments of a Seattle Home Inspector

It is painfully obvious to everyone that home inspectors get to find all the odd things created by homeowners and Uncle Bob.  There is apparently no end to these oddities and it keeps me entertained as a home inspector and is great for blog fodder.

This post however is about how sometimes we also find some very cool things done by homeowners---and even Uncle Bob.

Take for example this combination Bathroom night-lite/sink.

night-lite sink 

I thought it was pretty cool.  Great for an “ooooooh” instead of an “aarrgghh!”

Very cool. I love unusual things like that. I actually think it would have great value in a hotel or restaurant.

That is a lovely sink and the light would be fabulous in a powder room since guests don't necessarily know where the lightswitch is!

Kathy, thanks----and thanks for including me on your little weekly list:)

Jim, I think most people expect an overflow on the bathroom sink---I just give them a friendly "heads up" to minimize the learning curve:)

Robert the lights are actually in a more or less sealed area and the sink tail piece merely sticks through the bottom into the trap area below.  This creates more white reflective surface for the light to bounce around on

Maureen, this was a pretty high end house---lots of cool designer features like this

Kevin, pretty fun indeed

Homes for sale, who knows, perhaps they will become very common

Joanna, it creates a kind of fun ambiance

Sarah & Les---yes "bright" indeed:)

Kristin, glad you liked it
