Necessity is...

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

Necessity is...
     It has oft been said, "Necessity is the mother of invention". Sometimes, it can likened to the mother of "cranial cramps"; birthing creative, "out of the box" thinking. There is a correlation between the need to and the lack of, that causes creative juices to flow like wiskey out of a still. Kinda like, something doesn't fit? Simple solution. Just get a bigger hammer, Right?


Necessity is a mother...

     I guess we'll just have to figger a new way to get the fireplace to work sometime in fall, Oprah's on...

I thought in Tennessee that whiskey flowed from stills and didn't drip, but then perfection does take time.

I missed the stabilizing angle of the firewood and thought they were keeping birds, etc. out. Amazing...

Michael - whiskey may drip from a still and flow from a barrel, but, it pours from a bottle and, the right stuff, goes down smoothly. The life of a home inspector, you guys (and gals) see the neatest things.

I guess these people want to get more use out of their old antenna TV than their fireplace.  Quite an interesting view you shaerd with us!

What's the problem?  I think the homeowner has added tons of value to the property.  Once a hum-drum house, it's now a wonderful BBQ smoker!
