A bracing morning electrocution Electrocution is a great way to start the day. This extension cord had been installed behind the shower control knob. Maybe it was to save prep time in the morning. Wash and dry all at the same time. And yes, it was energized. Brian Arrington Dean Arrington Associates High Bridge, N.J.
Tight quarters This is a 6-gallon electric water heater, two inches away from a toilet in a men’s restroom. This is one way to assure that their aim is good.

Not a fan I’m not a fan of this setup. David Grudzinski Advantage Home Inspections Cranston, R.I.
Convenient outdoor storage This home has abundant storage space. You just can’t be afraid of heights to get to it! You’re not seeing things. Someone actually attached shelving to the aluminum siding and created a “closet” on the roof in a corner valley. Just climb out the window and all your stuff is right there! David R. Leopold Pillar To Post Professional Home Inspection Fairfield, Conn.
Happy holiday house fire The home had at least six surge protectors sitting out in the rain to power Christmas lights, etc. I also counted over 24 interior-use-only extension cords all over the home’s exterior, also for Christmas lights. A fire (or electrocution) waiting to happen. Oh, and we’ve had off and on rain a lot the past month and each of these was wet.
