I kept saying WHY! Desert Sun Home Inspection in Artesia New Mexico.
There are those homes that you want to pull your hair out when trying to figure out what the builder was or was not thinking when the y did what they did. Then you wonder if the local JHA (Juristicion having authority) inspectors even looked at the home when it was being built or even after the completion of the home.
This 4,000 square foot home has been on the markets for about four months. I think it is in a very nice subdivision.
One problem I could see from the get go was there was a home owner maintenance issue with the exterior of the home. Usually this is an indicator of things to come with the interior of the home and the interior maintenance.
More later on that front.
Home has 4,020 SFT. Two story. Three levels. Built in 2006, C of O in 2006.
Sold and moved into in 2006.
So why in the world would this home be the way it is. There are safety issues with this home. Major safety issues.
Here is a look at the staircase going up the the second level.
Here is a look at the staircase. There is no hand rail and there has never been a hand rail installed ever.
No Railing for the lower landing. Plus a little missing trim.
This next shot is of the top of the stairs. This last step is the so called landing is poor planning. It is also a trip hazard till you get used to walking on the uneven way they built the home.
Why was none of this not red flagged by the building department when they inspected this home?
There are a lot of things and questions I had when inspecting this home and the question remains. WHY?
