Creative home owner made a gable vent that can be closed

Some people are very creative in what they do. I give them credit for effort and creativity even if it something that should not normally be done. While at a recent Ohio home inspection I found it again.  The example of that is in the home attic here where the former home owner created a pulley system to open and close one of the gable vents.

The problem with this is that attic should always be ventilated, especially in the winter when condensation can become a big issue.

It is important to control moisture in all areas of a home. A home inspector should always look for moisture issues. Here is a video taken during a home inspection in Ohio.  This is a crawl space inspection video. Ohio home inspection video here shows and explains the issues with condensation in a crawl space. Make certain that your home inspector actually enters the crawl space.
