As a Seattle Home Inspector, I am committed to bringing all my years of experience, as well as my continuing education regarding home construction practices, to bear, in assisting the Home Buyer/Seller with their Home purchase/sale.

Inspecting NW Homes

Inspecting NW Homes

It is my intention that the Home Buyer/Seller have an accurate, “snap-shot” of the major components of the Home, thus assisting them in making an informed decision. While based in Seattle/Shoreline WA, I inspect homes all over Western Washington State, including King County, Snohomish County and sometimes even Pierce County. Some of the cities I commonly get to are Everett, Lynnwood, Bothel, Kenmore, Kent, SeaTac, Bellevue, Kirkland—-and many others. Some buyers have referred to my inspection reports as “beginning” owner’s manuals for their home.

Business & Inspection Experience

I have been designing and building residential structures for over 35 years.

Previous to becoming a Home Inspector in 2004, I was a “hands-on” general contractor and I was actively involved in all aspects of residential construction. As a designer and a builder, I had to keep up-to-date in all the trades involved in this work: foundations, framing, electrical, plumbing, insulation, drywall, siding, roofing etc. My specialties have been kitchen design, second story additions, whole house remodels, and new passive solar houses—-including composting toilets and wood foundations.

I currently sit on the Home Inspector Licensing Advisory Board of the State of Washington.

I am also on the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) technical review committee at the National level and served as chair of the committee for 2016.

I am a Graduate of Bellingham Technical College, Bellingham, Wa., Residential Home Inspection Course (160 hours), and I am currently an instructor with this program. This course is approved by the State of Washington for Home Inspector Education as preparation for new inspector licensing.

Episode 43 Bold

Preston Sandlin
Preston Sandlin

In this podcast Preston Sandlin reviews “Bold” by Peter Diamondes. Preston recently read this book and thought it would be a great book for home inspectors.

 

From the coauthors of the New York Times bestseller Abundance comes their much anticipated follow-up: Bold—a radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth while also positively impacting the lives of billions.

Bold unfolds in three parts. Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting today’s Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from “I’ve got an idea” to “I run a billion-dollar company” far faster than ever before. The authors provide exceptional insight into the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and sensors, and synthetic biology. Part Two of the book focuses on the Psychology of Bold, drawing on insights from billionaire entrepreneurs Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos. In addition, Diamandis reveals his entrepreneurial secrets garnered from building fifteen companies, including such audacious ventures as Singularity University, XPRIZE, Planetary Resources, and Human Longevity, Inc. Finally,Bold closes with a look at the best practices that allow anyone to leverage today’s hyper-connected crowd like never before. Here, the authors teach how to design and use incentive competitions, launch million-dollar crowdfunding campaigns to tap into ten’s of billions of dollars of capital, and finally how to build communities—armies of exponentially enabled individuals willing and able to help today’s entrepreneurs make their boldest dreams come true.

Bold is both a manifesto and a manual. It is today’s exponential entrepreneur’s go-to resource on the use of emerging technologies, thinking at scale, and the awesome power of crowd-powered tools.
