We had a home inspection just prior to 1 year, (Frank DeAngelo) and he found only 1 major item (insulation in the Lanai area), and several minor items. Over 3 years later, all is still well, except of the cracking in the ceiling of the lanai (over 600 homes affected so far).
If you are friends with your neighbors, ask them to take photos, I did this on the house next door, and gave the current owners a CD as part of a house warming gift. Also did this for a neighbor when they were having a very large addition installed.
I've had 3 homes built in Florida and in each of them took pictures of the progress. This can be very helpful later when wondering what's inside a wall, such as electrical or plumbing, when going to install something.
