Someone installed vinyl flooring over most of the opening for the bathroom's heating/cooling register. No wonder the bathroom didn't get cool when the A/C was running.
WIN Home Inspection - Elizabethtown
I ran into this at a recent inspection. I almost had to crawl out the window to go home.

The plot thickens
Here is an interesting find from a recent home inspection. I came across this under a gas fireplace: a bag of money, a video camera and ... a GUN!
The purchasers and their real estate agent were shocked when I showed them. Since the house still was for sale, I told the purchaser's real estate agent to inform the listing real estate agent to have the gun removed immediately to prevent someone from touching it. Yes, this occupation is exciting and, after 35 years, I'm still surprised daily at what I find during home inspections.
Majestic Home Inspection Service,
It was the cable guy
I found this in an attic. The cable company had just installed new cable in the house. I guess they didn't want to drill through the roof to install the cables and found it easier to pull the main furnace and water heater flue apart to get the wires into the house. The vent was still in use.

Built-in bookcase: ok. Built-in a/c: no.
This is a window air conditioner installed inside of a room instead of through a window to the exterior. The homeowner added a metal duct going into the attic to get rid of the heat that usually goes outside the window (see second photo). It's AMAZING what inspectors get to see!

Eeeek! A spatula!
Hand me that spatula. It's right next to the duct tape and the mouse nest.
