What I'm Seeing Now

Creating A New Series - Wrangle With Wrench

Meet Wrench.

He is a bit skewed.  You can probably see that.

He runs into problems, real problems.

He finds solutions to the problems, real solutions.

And Wrench will wrangle with each one and post the solution.

The wrenching problem could be something with furniture, an appliance, a tool, or whatever.

He might get thrown a wrench here and there.

He might wrangle with that wrench here and there.

But a solution to the problem will be in the post.

I hope you enjoy it.

So tune in.  I bet you won't tune out.  Wrench does not promise to increase your IQ, but he might show you something you did not know.

My recommendation:  when a wrench gets thrown into the works sometimes you have to deal with it.  Wrangle With Wrench will help deal with different problems.  He  might even ask you to submit a problem for which he might, just might, propose a solution.  Get ready to wrangle...

I'm sure we all are looking forward to the issues and remedies Wrench will come up with.

While I'm not taking responsibility for this guy, James, I bet you'll enjoy it...

Jay- I have a quick question, how do you get in the attic to inspect it when the opening is in a small closet just above all of the clothes racks?  A seller asked me this recently.  Looking forward to the series

Good one Kathy.  Have the seller clean out the closet to make way and pay for another trip by the home inspector.  Or hire a home inspector who has 12 year old Boy Scouts on staff.  They are small.  They fit most anywhere.

Isn't his first name Monkey? Smooth looking guy... Looking forward to the issues and answers!

That just MAY have been a nickname when he was very young Andrea.  As I'm told.

He just rents the opportunity to post on  my site here Bob.  We'll see how it goes.

I've wrenched my back before... has anybody ever told you that you are quite the handsome man? 

Posted by Fred Hernden, CMI, Albuquerque area Master Inspector (Superior Home Inspections - Greater Albuquerque Area) over 3 years ago

What a great idea.  Not only great home inspection experiences, but I'll bet questions will be entertained as well.  Will it be a specific day of the week like your Tuesday posts???

Looking forward to it.

Thank you Fred.  I'm told I am often confused with Robert Redford.

Lenn - my Tuesday free enterprise posts still go here.

As to these, I have five ideas already and today's photog took a couple of good ones.  I think the first will be tomorrow.

These really will be bona fide resolutions to common problems.  But in Wrench's way.  Gird your loins.

Robert Redford is not a good comparison now Jay.... have you seen how old that guy looks now?

Posted by Fred Hernden, CMI, Albuquerque area Master Inspector (Superior Home Inspections - Greater Albuquerque Area) over 3 years ago

Oh.

Posted by Jay Markanich, Home Inspector - servicing all Northern Virginia (Jay Markanich Real Estate Inspections, LLC) over 3 years ago

I will be reading all your posts. I just read the one about using dish detergent.

In my answer on today's post I was kidding Gita.  I may be Wrench, but don't tell...

You are just loaded with personality, aren't you?  Can't wait for the new series.

Chris Ann - I have six ideas for topics right now.  Don't know how often I'll get out a post.

Jay, WANT gottahave those glasses!

Posted by Charles Buell, Seattle Home Inspector (Charles Buell Inspections Inc.) over 3 years ago

I think I got them at a costume shop years ago Charlie.  I have used them in many props.  They probably set me back $3 or $4.
