Inexperienced inspectors might fall into a trap of saying something’s not right in an old home because that’s not how we do it today. But the reality is that historic homes are very different and those differences aren’t necessarily bad.
I looked at the east, west, and south walls and there weren't any apparent problems. However, when I got to the north wall it was completely covered with the seller's storage and personal property. Instead of assuming the north wall was in good shape like the other walls, I documented the fact the wall was not visible and not evaluated due to being blocked/ covered by the seller's property.
