Old Ironing Board in the wall

Home Inspection with ironing board in the wall

This was a historical thing to see on todays home inspection on the South side of Louisville, KY.  Ironing board installed in the wall.  This was a popular item in the home.  Sometime in the 1960’s clothes that did not wrinkle came out and ironing became less common. From the point of view of the home inspector this item has no issues.  I have seen one before that had an electrical plug located inside the unit that did not work.  Hopefully the future homeowner does not remove and drywall over this.
