    Default Inspector Test

    Here is a little test for Ya! The Inspector - A Game by Fine Homebuilding

    Hint be very carefull and click exactly where you want it. Off a little and your screwed.

    I missed 3 out of the seven but I can't tell you why until you all have played. I bet you do the same thing.........

    No problem, Mike. I got them ALL RIGHT after trying five times.

    Yeah ... okay ... they want things like ... okay, not telling, but things like in the Sunday comics where children compare two drawings and pick out the differences ...

    ... all the while ignoring the ridge beam is too shallow for the depth of the rafter ends and real things like that.

    You can click your points away trying to click on the real things and come up empty, even less than empty - jeez.

    I got them all the second time, but tried being very careful and specific on clicking exactly on the real things and kept losing points the first time. That was not what that wants, with the exception of about 3 items.

    I ended up with a score of 850. Hit the first four, down hill after that. But I found them all.

    I found 6 of them and then lost all of my points pointing to other issues that were not included. So much for Fine Homebuilding's expertise. For example, on the left wall there appear to be horizontal let-in blocks with gaps from the notches to the brace, the top plate of the left wall is not doubled. The ladder in the picture has four legs and not three.

    These guys are smoking crack.

    The ladder indeed has only three legs below the bottom brace, until clicked on, then that fourth leg appears.

    Same thing I pointed out - they made up silly issues for some and left the real and important issues unidentified.

    JP: Agreed. And to think, I used to read their magazine.

    Ditto - My score went pretty far negative before I found the 7th.

    I studied the photo for at least 30 minutes and could find nothing wrong? However, the guy in the red shirt kneeling in the closet (unless it’s Toulouse Lautrec?) thinks no one can see him and the guy on the ladder appears to have wet his pants………(probably scared?)

    I kept clicking on that guy in the red shirt. He's obviously stealing payroll.

    The ladder is what got me and with my screen you could not see the sill plate missing.

    I was thinking framing issues not safety. I thought the Famous Mr. Ted would of played for sure.
    I always Like Teds theme song. A horse is a horse of course of course........or was the Mr. Ed?

    Hey Aaron,

    Maybe my eyesight is starting to go, but it looks like those rafters line up directly over the studs........
