Icicles ...

Icicles

 

Are these pretty sparkly icicles on an old drafty house without modern insulation?  Nope the Columbus Ohio  home is only about seven years old, the builder did not insulate over the utility room at the front of the house for some reason.  Or the company that does the insulation did not install the insulation in this part of the house.  The builder did not catch that there was no insulation.  

I am not sure if many new home buyers in Central Ohio spend the money to inspect a newly built house.   It would probably have cost about as much to have the inspection as it is going to cost someone today to have the insulation installed.

How much money has the present owner lost over the years through the roof? 

The present owner is NOT the original owner so the home builder (one of the biggest in Central Ohio) will not put in the insulation for the present owner.  It is not structural. 

Wouldn't it have been great if the present owner's home inspector had caught it when she bought the house?  I wonder if she had an inspection of the house.  It is tempting with a nearly new house to forgo the inspection isn't it?  The house passed all the inspections when it was built right?  And this builder is a bigger and stands behind their product.... right?

I guess there's no consolation in the fact that they're pretty, eh?
