Ever get that sinking feeling?

Here's another "inspection minute" from a recent home inspection in San Diego. An unpermitted sub-grade room has been installed. The substandard work has compromised the structure of the home. This may be costly to repair. Be sure to inspect before you buy! Steve Stenros, MCI- First Choice Inspections 888-335-3040
