Anyone have a ukulele?

NACHI - Thu, 06/27/2013 - 22:58
I am looking for a good to great ukulele. At a good to great to free price. Let me know if you have one in decent shape you wish to get rid of.

I would trade a decent looking electrical meter of some sort I aquired. Electrical stuff is not my forte and this is one designed for REAL electricians. I can post info on it if you are interested. I am almost certain the tool would be worth more than the uke.

Contact me anytime if interested. I'll be away from the phone from this Sat morn till the following Monday but if interested let me know right away as I may purchase one on vacation if no one is interested.:) I would also be interested in the yamaha guitalele list price $100

I did two exams on Nachi on 6-15 and 6-18. Does anyone know how long it takes to show up on dbpr site? Is it usually automatic or do you have to submit?

Thanks,

PVC plumbing on exterior concrete deck surface

NACHI - Thu, 06/27/2013 - 19:15
This person plumbed a whirlpool tub in a sunroom attached to the back of his house. The pvc runs out of the stucco from the master bath and then around the house at the base of the stucco then to the tub. Is it ok to have pvc outside on the concrete? If it's ok, I know it should at least be strapped.

Maybe time to go to a flat tax.

What is this...

NACHI - Thu, 06/27/2013 - 16:08
I just wanted to feedback on what this metal member is that is coming from under the stucco on the deck.
It was not deck flashing because it did not cover the ledger board underneath.
Thanks in advance....

I've not yet inspected a home with solar and saw this posted at the main breaker panel. What the heck does it mean? Advise on comment would be a big help. Thanks!

Tankless water heater

NACHI - Wed, 06/26/2013 - 23:57
The home owner had installed a tankless water heater in the attic hard piped through the existing 50 gal tank of the old water heater in the hallway. I'd never seen that. What would be the purpose of installing it this way?

Condensate pump

NACHI - Wed, 06/26/2013 - 23:41
At my inspection today I saw a few things I had not seen. One was a condensate pump at the base of the air handler with no drip pan. The pump was set up to pump water up through the attic and out of the home, maybe a run of 25'. Has anyone seen this? Any advise on comments?

Inspection Dejavu

NACHI - Wed, 06/26/2013 - 21:57
I live and work in a very small town, just over 3000 with very few home inspectors. I recently inspected a home that my client decided to pass on. So it is well within the scope of possibility that I could be hired to inspect this same home again by another interested party. So my question is how to professionally deal with this? It would be completely redundant to do another inspection as I already have the information. But to simply edit the report to the new client seems not right either. Perhaps that at a reduced rate?

I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts.

Door that separates garage from living area

NACHI - Wed, 06/26/2013 - 21:19
I saw your article about Attached Garage Fire Containment (http://www.nachi.org/attached-garage-fire-hazards.htm) but it didn't mention which way the door should swing -- into the garage or into the living area? Or doesn't it matter?

Ministry of Consumer Services meeting June 25th

NACHI - Wed, 06/26/2013 - 19:55
The meeting held in Toronto, On by the Ministry of Consumer Services was an informative stepping stone for all home inspectors in Ontario. I have attached a PDF file for everyone with the key points of the meeting.

At the stage the key issue for InterNACHI is ensuring we have a seat on the panel to decide the regulations for the province. This panel is yet to be chosen, but I have no doubt InterNACHI will be represented.

Hey beautiful people!
I'm a young woman who followed her Daddy around as a child and loved watching him build :) now that I'm an adult I started taking it a bit more seriously. This is what I want to do with my life, I know a fair bit about homes and now would like to know more to become a home inspector. and become a successful business woman!

As I start this journey, is there any advice anyone would have? What should I study first? Any study tips?

Thanks so much! Hope to build some good connections!
