This is a 200 amp Service electrical panel with the wiring visible, and as can be seen a very unprofessional wiring job. Lots of loose wiring evident in the interior and wires around the panel not secure or stapled.
Wires entering into panel are not secure with plastic sleeves, also allowing mice to get in to the panel, a very poor job.
Cats urinated on the wood floors for such a long time, and into the air ducts that it flowed into the main air duct above the furnace and into the heat exchanger. The wooden floors were warped, the ducts smelled of ammonia from the cats and there was actually corrosion of the metal as seen in these photos.
This is a rare steel-framed house structure. All studs, beams, posts, and ceiling joists are prefabricated and brought to the site. All material is assembled on-site giving this particular house a very strong and energy-efficient
nature. Bottom line, a very well built house but a higher cost to build.
In cottage home Inspections, sometimes you will see some very interesting designs or methods of construction. In this case, instead of cutting the trees down to build a deck above, the owner has built the deck around these birch trees. Owners should be aware that the trees are constantly growing in height and diameter, therefore always to monitor that the deck allows the tree to grow by trimming the wood around the tree over time.
This is a new house that is being constructed with slab on grade (no basement).
The plumbing has been installed under the cement to be poured. Also under the slab, it will be a central source of heat with a pump to push the heated liquid throughout the structure. The floor will be warm, note also the styrofoam insulation complete with wire mesh which gives strength to the slab from cracking.
