I am a home inspector so I see things I don’t even want to see. Much more than I want to see. I recently called the city inspector (one of them anyway that has a reputation for being the Wyatt Earp of inspectors). I wanted to know where the city stood on an issue.I asked my question and he told me if the homeowner installed the water heater then they could do what they wanted. He inspects the licensed people. What happened to having the amateur inspected and the licensed person is supposed to know the code?? I couldn’t believe he actually told me what I was hearing. You never know what you will hear. I also live in the rural part of a rural area. I can pretty well do what I want…..most of the time….so far. That will probably change next year but the local boys won’t care. Only that they don’t have a job.
