The Home Reference Book

The Encyclopedia of Homes

The Home Reference Book was first published in 1989 as a Report Writing System for Carson Dunlop’s home inspection business. We recognized that a good inspection needed a professional report.

Over the years, we have continued to refine and enhance The Home Reference Book to make it one of the most technical and comprehensive yet user-friendly books on the market.

The Home Reference Book is used by home inspectors as a report writing tool, by schools and colleges for their home inspection training programs, and by real estate professionals as a gift to consumers to help them understand their home.
