The batteries are charged, camera's in the truck, and the blank forms are in the briefcase.  Two of us will arrive at John Doe's at 8:30 tomorrow - Wednesday - morning.  It should be a brisk and partly cloudy day, enough difference between inside and out to get good, clear IR camera pix.  First a short sit-down with the owner, then quick walk through with the camera, a Worst Case Combustion Zone test (let me know if you want more info on that; I'm may write a post about why it's vitally important), a blower door test, duct pressure test, and lastly a complete sketch or take-off of the house so we can correctly computer model it.

Looking forward to it.  It should be a fun one.  I'll take plenty of pix.
