Of course there is no end to the “stuff” home inspectors find in crawl spaces.
These spaces get used to store all kinds of stuff. Many people can be found crawling around in their crawl space just after Thanksgiving to retrive their Christmas decorations. Like poor Rudolph here from an inspection several years ago.
And while there may have been an old medicine cabinet thrown into a pile of other stuff in some other crawl space that I have inspected, none stood out quite like this one.
In the first place it was HUGE–as in WAY bigger than the ordinary recessed type medicine cabinet you might have in your own bathroom.
It was shiny and metallic like many medicine cabinets.
It had a door like most medicine cabinets.
It even had a lights like most medicine cabinets. But these lights were on the “inside,” and the shiny metal was foil insulation, and the door—-well the door was HUGE.
What we actually had here was a “medicinal cabinet!” Not your ordinary “medicine cabinet.” This of course explained the size, and the lights being on the inside instead of the outside. And it explained the insulation.
No mirror necessary–as any reflection would have more to do with reflecting on things–after the harvest.
Medicinal brownies anyone?
