Sometimes "Grampa just needs to retire".
There are a lot of things on a home that gets "grand fathered in".
At Desert Sun Home inspections in Carlsbad New Mexico, we work hard to make a report that is the best report for the buyer.
It is not up to us as inspectors to say this needs to be changed just because it's outdated or just old.
Case in point. The electrical system on this home had been upgraded but a long time ago.
It seems the owners never stopped building or adding additions to the home.
But the electrical was not up graded for the home as the home grew in size.
The nice home started out as a 1,100 two bedroom one bath home with no garage and just the home on the electrical system.
Built in the 1950's and after many new additions to the home, now the home is a whopping 2,800 Square feet.
Here is a look at the electrical panel for the entire home.
As you can see there are not many breakers for the home in the main panel.
I think there were "other panels" in the home, but I was unable to find any more sub panels anywhere.
Most of the home was the older style ungrounded plug system.
Some of the plugs were the three pronged proper style plugs that were wired correctly.
As an inspector there are times when "Grampa needs to retire".
How would you write this one up as an home inspection in your area? A little help please.
Have a grerat day everyone.
