Our chapter is again partnering with the Minnesota Society of Housing Inspectors (MSHI) to create an all-day test house seminar. We’ll have a vacant house available to seminar attendees the week before the seminar, from November 13th to November 15th. Home inspectors can inspect the home as they normally would, then bring their findings to the seminar on Tuesday. All inspectors will be welcome to share or not share their results; this will not truly be a “test”, as nobody will look over and grade your reports. Seminar attendees will not be required to inspect the test house beforehand; they’re just encouraged to.

Photos, report language, defect diagrams, and corresponding home inspection SOP will all be reviewed at the time of the seminar, with the presenters working as moderators to facilitate a group discussion. What did you find, what did you recommend, and why?

This will be a fun seminar where we can all learn from each other.

7:15 am – 8:00 am: Registration, breakfast
8:00 am – 9:45 am: Interior inspection
9:45 am – 10:00 am: Break
10:00 am – 11:30 pm: Attic and HVAC inspection
11:30 pm – 12:15 pm: Catered lunch
12:15 pm – 2:15 pm: Plumbing & Electrical inspection
2:15 pm – 4:00 pm: Exterior inspection

The fee for this full day of learning, with food included, is only $50 for chapter members. Please register through MSHI’s website here.
If you’re not a member of our chapter, you ought to join our chapter and get the chapter rate for this seminar. If you’re simply not interested in that, the seminar fee for non-members is $100. And that’s still a bargain. The registration deadline is November 12th.

The address of the test house will be sent out to registered attendees. The home is located in Minneapolis near Highway 280 and Hennepin Ave.
