Animals, skeletons, and creepy home inspection stuff, 2019

Most of the stuff that we post is educational, but this one isn’t. This is pure eye-candy for the season. If you follow our Facebook page, you’ve surely seen most of these photos, but not all of them. These are our favorites from 2019. Warning: Several of these photos are gross.


Big spider (for Minnesota).

This is one creepy-looking crawlspace.

How did this fish get on a roof? We’re guessing a bird dropped it. Yes, there was a lake nearby.

Quit drinking out of there! Don’t you know kids pee in that water?

Just hangin’ out.

This squirrel was frozen solid in the attic.

We’re not sure what this used to be. We’re guessing a squirrel.

Pile of fur

Zombie squirrel! Or maybe a mother protecting its young.

    I need to take the state test for Virginia. PSI administers the test but I can’t find the test on their web site. I am looking for home inspector. Any idea what else it would be listed under? I am a member of Nachi but they are of no help for the Virginia test.

    Hi Tom, it doesn’t make any sense. I had to call them to get this figured out the first time:

    Organization: Government/State Licensing Agencies
    Jurisdiction: A National Home Inspector (EBPHI)
    Account: National Home Inspector (EBPHI)
