House Anniversary Day

I've been so heads down in work this month that the 15th anniversary of living in Sterling passed without fanfare. I'm pretty sure that I count as a local now.

To mark this occasion, here is an excerpt from my 2004 Home Inspection Report -- the house had been on the market for three months in an age when houses were flipping in a matter of days, so an inspection was key.

The inspector did not test the birdbath. Fifteen years later, it and 2 surrounding dead trees have been removed, maximizing the available space for front yard bowling and/or lawn darts.

The first half of the inspection was not particularly alarming:

The second half was a bit more worrisome, betraying the house's background of having an illegal multi-tenant sublet in the basement. (I design much better multi-tenant architectures).

Your electricity has been incorrectly wired, there's only 1 smoke alarm (broken), and there's no heat in the house, no big deal.

Luckily, the old owners bought a new heat pump that lasted another 4 years, and my dad is an electrical whiz!
