Well I'll be!

Real Estate Agent with Resort and Second-Home Specialist REALTOR Broker #21673

Sometimes I see a post on Active Rain that just makes me laugh. And this is one of those. It was featured but if you are like me you miss many good posts even if they are features so I'm re-blogging this one. An innovative solution from a super home inspector!

Well I'll be! I have seen pictures of stuff like this, never thought I'd see it though. A couple days ago I inspected a house right at the base of the Sandia Mountains. When I was on the roof, I got a great view looking either way! Anyway, back on task Mr Inspector...

This house was built in the 70's. Undoubtedly, there has been some tomfoolery going on here because when I got to the master bathroom I went into the water closet to check out the toilet. It flushed fine, was not loose on the floor... so I turned around to try the door to insure it latched.

What? Are you kidding me? The door hits the toilet bowl and does not close! Nice... at least it's in the master bathroom and you don't have to explain to your guests why they can't have any privacy!




But wait... your crack Home Inspector has the solution! Yes folks, that is not a problem here, we make custom fitted doors for just this type of problem!

It might be a hard sell, but then again, you wouldn't have the "door won't close" problem anymore! A small window shade to pull down after the door closes and presto... instant privacy!




The buyer merely laughed when I showed him the door hit the toilet bowl... I guess he knows the solution as well!
