For the last few weeks there had been water accumulating under the pressure tank, being summer I wrote it off to condensation, earlier this week I looked close and saw dripping. At first I thought the gauge had failed, last night I saw the crack!!! : angry:

So removed and headed to get replacement.

Took this opportunity to raise the tank up since sitting that close to the floor didn't work well for draining tank. At some point will be getting all new pressure tanks (3) and new well pump.

Well we don't have cable, but I am on vacation and at hotel watching Holmes Inspection. Amazing what some homeowners can do but any home inspector worth their weight in salt should never miss. This family bought house that for sure shouldn't have with proper inspection. Can't wait to see confrontation between Mike and inspector. Wait a minute do we have vents on roof?

OH No, we don't! Well need to look for ridge vent, man I hate roofs.

Will also need to truly determine where bathroom fan terminates.

Unfortunately they never do that. It would be AWESOME though if he actually went and confronted the inspector and asked about their "work".

On his old show "Holmes on Homes" he used to go and confront the crappy contractors sometimes, it was quite hillarious. I remember one episode where a cabinet place just never delivered their cabinets - he actually went to their store and stood there yelling "It's been 3 months and all you do is ignore my phone calls, not sure what I'm doing wrong" and you could see customers running away". You could never get away with that in the states since you'd get sued for god knows what but he show is Canadian - i'm not sure why they got away from that.

Pete,

The amount of open air connections made me feel scared for this family. Owner incorrectly spliced into 220v behind drywall and in attic insulation. Had to have been at least 50 -100 open air connections hidden from sight.

Working on mud room floor, using a two size tile pattern. Should be finished laying tile today. Will grout by Friday.

Had a chance to use my new oscillating saw to cut door casings, went really smooth. The floor in the foyer will need to be re-done too, will install a nice threshold between the two rooms.

Holy Crap! Do you live on energy drinks?!? Your "project" reminds me of the movie "The Money Pit." LOL. I'm sure you are saving a ton by DIY and you are certainly very handy. Nice job on the kitchen. The master bath plans look really cool.

I am putting in some pretty high end stuff and this house was over-improved for the area, even though we got it as a foreclosure.

Waited 3 hours for generator only to have truck arrive with a driver with no controller for the lift gate. So now we wait for contact for another attempt. Totally lame. USF Holland is trifling.
