This inspector, Jay Markanich, tells his clients to call him after the inspection with any questions. You should be able to call your inspector after you move in -- he knows your home very well and he has his report to refer to. This is a re-blog of one of Jay's interesting posts about inspections and follow up. Via Jay Markanich - Northern VA Home Inspector (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC): My clients are listening to me! This (2 comments)
I am thankful for many things, but today I am expressing my thanks to my partner, Martin Phillips, for convincing me to go with him to Yellowstone National Park in the winter for a winter photo workshop.
I don't like being cold – so the last place I wanted to go in the middle of an Ohio winter was to somewhere that promised to be even colder. But I managed to buy some wonderful warm clothes to wear, including Nike "thermal underwear" which was unbelievably warm, a few pairs of (15 comments)
BUILDING GREEN- Just Remember what Grandpa Taught You
By Andrew Hill @ www.NewHomeSource.com
Green building: It was once thought to be a fad, a lifestyle trend that was sure to burn out. But today, all signs point towards a steady future for green construction. Surprising? Maybe.

10 REASONS NOT TO STAGE YOUR HOME - 02/08/12 10:01 AM
This is an excellent post by Janet Jones, a stager in Hawaii about staging your home -- all excellent and often-heard objections.
