    Hey everyone. I havent been on here much what with courses for upgrading and studien for exams for my next certification. Plus on top of all that i was in the process of looking for and buying a house. I think i have found a diecent place (like most things i buy its gonna need some work) but wondering if anyone knows a good home inspector? Or is a home inspector? (I believe Doug once mentioned something about it lol). Id like to get a good through home inspection done so that i have a better idea of what problems might arise. It should be noted that im not against major house work as i have already decided that the house will be pretty well fully gutted and rebuilt. Also its in CBS if that helps lol.

    Looking forward to some help on this one lol.

    Thanks Keith for the info but another buddy of mine came through with his recommendation and got the inspection booked for tomorrow morning. By party do you mean flooring and wall destruction party? Because that might end up being my christmas party lol
