WOW, thanks everyone for the answers and comments!
The house was built in 1951. The home inspector has been through and
suggested these two items may be an issue. I've noticed home
inspectors tend to be a little more paranoid than necessary, which
comes with the job I'm sure.
The bathroom light switch seems to be up for debate, some say it's
safe or at least not an issue, others say to move it . . .
The garage thing was a bad description and I don't know enough to be
very accurate. There is 110 and 220 going out to the garage. All the
lights, garage door, outlets, etc (110) are controlled by a (visibly)
normal light switch in the house. I can't tell if the 220 is
controlled by the same switch. The inspector said this could be a
problem. I don't want to pile this on our list if there isn't anything
wrong with this setup. In fact it may be convenient if I forget to
shut off the lights or something :)
Sorry my post was a little vague. I know almost nothing about
electrical systems. Just so you know the depth of my knowledge, the
inspector is the one who told me there was 220 going out to the
garage, i hadn't noticed.
Anyway, I appreciate all of your comments. Have a great day!
