An Unexpected Food Find

I ran a photo inspection yesterday in Hinton, West Virginia. This was a job I had to postpone a week ago due to heavy rain, and I had my fingers crossed yesterday since rain was supposed to arrive later in the afternoon.

Chestnut Revival, Hinton, West Virginia

Hinton is a small town located near the New River. It saw its glory days when railroad travel was king, from the 1890s through the 1920s. Those days are long gone, and its main claim to fame now is the fact it is home to the coolest Dairy Queen in existence.

Beaver Inspection


Beaver, West Virginia, that is.

I recently signed up with another field services agency and yesterday they sent me to Beaver for my first-ever home inspection that didn't involve making someone angry, or posting a delinquency notice to the door and slipping away before the debtor or any neighbors noticed me.

This job was on behalf of a bank, of course (as are most home-related field inspections) -- but in this case the homeowner had applied for a home equity line of credit, and my task was to take various exterior photos of the house and immediate area, and to report on the condition of the property and overall quality of the neighborhood.
