    Default Smallest inspection?

    This was a military relocation job. A new apartment building next door to the base. 472 sq ft.
    It's a functional layout. I would add a bedroom door.
    I checked the building exterior, roof, garage, storage lockers, common areas, and found a few blemishes in the unit. Kept busy and wrote a nice report.

    What was your smallest inspection?

    It was a 750 sq. ft bungalow type house. However, with the number of defects I found, you'd have sworn the house was three times are large.

    There are a bunch of 718 square foot houses in one area of town. They're kind of a pain, though. The furnace is in the crawl space, and the crawl in general is not easy. We have some senior condos that are really nice to inspect. No roof, no crawl. If I didn't have anyone asking me questions I could be out of there in 45 minutes.

    I did a 300 sq ft efficiency condo. One room with a 3/4 bath. Not even a closet in the place. Association supplied heat and water. No laundry. Had it's own electrical panel. Two windows. It took about 30 minutes.
