For the last 25 years, James Brock has conducted home inspections in the Boston area through his firm, Boston Home Inspectors.
It's a pretty straightforward name but as Brock told The Boston Globe, he tries to ensure that the business itself sees a new innovation every year. This usually involves getting new uniforms or improving customer reports, but the biggest idea to raise the firm's profile came from his kids in 2016: start an Instagram account to attract new clients.
Although he was hesitant at first, he soon found that finding material for this page was pretty easy as he comes across strange and ill-advised features in the homes he inspects all the time. And while Brock has gained new customers as a result of his posts, many of his 15,000 followers are just curious to see what oddities he comes across.
And as we're about to see, there is really no shortage of bizarre design decisions that reveal themselves during these inspections.
