    dangerous nails sticking out of boards


    I found these laying on a new construction site.  Be careful out there.  Not everyone cleans up when they are building...

    These can also be hidden under the snow or other debris.  We perform new construction appraisals... and we are careful...

    There are a lot of new construction homes being sold in the Twin Cities metro area.  Be careful that all items on the plans are complete.  This is not the first time I have seen an A/C unit missed because it is so cold.

    With the spring comes muddy construction sites.  Because of this, many nails that were dropped over the winter and become stuck in the mud in the upright, stick into your foot, position.  Be careful...
