While not exactly what a Home Inspector strives for, it can sometimes be fun to be “stumped” by things we find at an inspection. It was particularly interesting to be stumped on a house that was only 432 sq ft!
I mean how difficult could it be?
This cute little structure started out as a fishing cabin in 1921—–and now the structure leaves everyone fishing for answers—-lots of answers—-to lots of questions. Aside from needing an all new foundation (because there was none in some areas), a new floor structure (due to Anobiid Beetle damage) and a new roof (due to water damage to the roof structures); the home would still qualify as “cute”—to hopeless romantics and otherwise uninformed buyers.
Can one actually sell “cute” all by itself?
Most of these issues, while problematic, did not really amount to Rocket Science, so what had me stumped?
Well actually it was the house that was stumped.
