- Using the Narrative Library Template
The InterNACHI Narrative Library for HomeGauge contains approximately 7,500 unique narratives, including comprehensive sections on:
- Pool and Spa;
- Thermal imaging;
- Log homes;
- Commercial roofing;
- Green building; and links to...
- Report writing articles and help; and
- Links to reference material including ICC codes
The InterNACHI Narrative Library Template
Once you’ve installed the InterNACHI Narrative Library 1.9 file on your computer, simply open the HG program and the InterNACHI Narrative Library will appear as one of the template choices.
Installing the InterNACHI Narrative Library template into the HomeGauge software does not change the way the Home
Gauge software works. You will still have access to all the templates that come with HomeGauge software, but you'll also be able to choose the InterNACHI template with its vastly increased number of narratives and reference material.
Be Aware! This template will not merge automatically with existing HG templates. If you already have a template with many of your own comments, you will need to transfer them to the Narrative Library template. This template can be split for the use of multiple inspectors working a single property, but the templates they start with must be identical.
Mobile Users! Because of its large size, the Library is likely to cause cause the HomeGauge mobile version (Companion) to crash. The recommended fix is to make a safety copy of the original template file in the HomeGauge folder on your hard drive, and with companion, use a version in which you have deleted sections that you don't use. This might be Green Building, Log Homes, or both depending on what you inspect.
Library Support: Although this template is for HomeGauge, it is not produced by HomeGauge. Please direct Library questions to Kenton: firstname.lastname@example.org. (720) 646-8724
In the CYA section, this template has over 40,000 words of onboard reference material including checklists, inspection guidelines, and lists of inspection concerns. Links to PDF manuals for installation and inspection will be available any time you have wireless access to the internet. Most reference material appears automatically on the right side of the screen when you are looking at inspection items (click the middle image at the top of this page).
You can refer to this section while you are performing the inspection or creating the report.
