Design fails: What were they thinking?

As home inspectors, AmeriSpec Omaha and Lincoln has seen our share of repairs and bloopers that have made us shake our heads and wonder what people were thinking. But sometimes, it’s not the homeowner at fault, but the person who designed the home.

Our friends at have posted some wacky design fails. We’ll share a few of them here.

First of all, we need to talk about where people are putting their bathrooms. Even if you’re a workaholic, you should be able to take a bathroom break — in a SEPARATE room — every once in a while.

And having the bathroom this close to the kitchen? Just. . . .no. Not even in a tiny home.

Now let’s talk about steps. Sometimes, they come in handy. A chair doesn’t count.

And finally, this fan. That scatters debris every time it’s turned on.
