What I'm Seeing Now

Recycling

Recycling is something that can probably be done in many ways!

And all sorts of things can be recycled.

Take air for instance.  Who wouldn't want moving air?

This house touted two brand new, and professionally remodeled bathrooms in its features list.

And they were!

New everything - fixtures, tile, floor, mirrors, lights, even exhaust fans.

Climbing into the attic I noticed that even the discharge tubing was new! The old tubing for one of them was enthusiastically cast to the side, no longer needed!

For both bathrooms!

Impressive - top to bottom these bathrooms were new.

And just look how the exhaust fans are aimed at each other!

Recycling!  It's not often that air is recycled.  I remember they recycled the air on Apollo 13, and it worked great!  So why not here?

Is this recycling at its best?

My recommendation:  even when new work is done, or better put ESPECIALLY when new work is done, have it investigated by a home inspector!  You don't know what might turn up!  These bathrooms were apparently never vented through the roof anywhere.  So, when the remodeling was done, they only had to vent them the way it had been done previously, right?

Wrong...
