True, but it's Holmes no one will say oh he did that wrong.
True they keep the home owners out but you can trust Holmes and or the 30 contractors that tell him yes there is a code for that.

Oh yea; the code thing, he aways preaches better than min. code. That only works if you understand all the problems considered when the code was writtin. Now where back to hangers with screws!!

Notice they never talk money on Holmes like the other shows were the budget is so suspenseful it scary.
There is no way the home owner's insurance pays for any of that.

When we were house shopping, the realtor kept pointing out beautiful decor etc. I would walk around with the realtor while the Mr. checked out the foundation, roof, etc - all the unglamorous stuff that realtors never mention and typical buyers never consider.

Fat lot of good it did - we ended up with the infamous money pit, but we mostly bought it for the acreage it sits on, which is great.

Dionysia: A home buyer is really on his own, evan with a home inspection, the hiddin stuff is the most expensive especially if you have to rip out all the pretty stuff to fix framing or plumbing.
My wish is that every home owner keep a log on all the work done on a house with photos of everything along the way. When it comes time to sell the house it has to be a great relief for the buyers whose inspector can look at photos and see that everything was done right and what was new or not. That house has to be worth more than the house next door with out such info.
