Many Oakland home inspections turn out to be entertaining. Founded in 1852, Oakland was recently declared as the most diverse city in terms of various ethnic populations. Around 150 languages are spoken in the Oakland metropolitan area with a population of approximately 400,000.
While standing on top of a 1942 California bungalow surveying the condition of the roof. I noticed the bigger-than-life, male head bust sitting on the next door neighbor’s roof.
About 6 feet high and as wide, was it a bust of a famous person or a deceased family member? Who made it? How old was it? How did they get the bust on top of the flat roof?
Inspector… “It certainly looked like the back of Ronald Regan”
