While on vacation this March in Punta Cana, I happened to look up at my palapa hut and found live termites in the frame. I’m supposed to be on vacation, away from this stuff. Ron Cook

Hopedale, Mass.Living on the edge
This is a picture of my client’s present home, which he is leaving. There’s about 6 feet between the house and a 100-foot-drop to the ocean. In the last 8 years, he has lost 25 feet of frontage.Guy Occhino

Portland, MaineFlammable furnace pan
This is recycling, Alaskan-style. Pressboard makes a great furnace pan! Yes, it’s pretty stupid, but I’m sure the owner is saying it hasn’t caught fire, yet.Jim Foss

Pro-Team Property Inspections
Wesley Chapel, Fla.Cute, but deadly
This is from a lake-front property, a handyman’s special. The 24-inch-high railing is cute, but deadly. Under the deck, the joist hangers were never nailed properly and have pulled out of the hangers at several locations. This deck could have collapsed with a single person on it.David J. Roth
