A "post" about a "post"... INSPECTION PHOTO!

Under this house we found water that was coming from a plumbing leak. You can see it in the background.  Additionally this post is leaning and has shifted off its base.  It is not even attached to the base and will fall out soon.

My husband is a Structural Steel Engineer: he recently was called to a home that cantilevers off of a cliff - the structural beems were so rusted through you could see sunlight & poke your pencil through the I-Beams.... this is scary too!

Amazing what you find hidden. Out of sight, out of mind doesn't apply here.

That picture is pretty scary if it's based here in SoCal.  Won't take too much to see that one shift off.....
