The Thin Line Home Inspections Family

The company is comprised of two employees - Pete Lim and Ryan Allnutt. Pete and Ryan have known each other for 20 years. They have officially been family since 2010 when Pete married Ryan's sister.

Pete Lim


Pete is a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps. He received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from UMD, and has worked for numerous organizations, primarily managing organizational and departmental process improvement.

​In addition to being trained by ICA (Inspection Certification Associates) Pete has worked weekends and summers with his father who owned his own construction company for 40 years. He is the former General Manager of a home repair company performing estimates, managing projects, and overseeing repairs. He has strong relationships with industry-related companies. 

​Pete is a lifelong Montgomery County resident and in his spare time he volunteers as the Director of Rules & Instruction and youth baseball coach (25+ seasons) at RBBA. He enjoys fishing, playing frisbee and spending time with his family.

Ryan Allnutt


Ryan was trained by ICA (Inspection Certification Associates) to perform residential home inspections. Besides Ryan's education in home construction and whole-house systems, he worked in a very service and detail-oriented industry, making and selling eyeglasses for 15 years in the family business. Ryan utilizes the same stringent standards to examine your home and all associated components that he would have used to check a pair of eyeglasses.

Ryan was born and raised in Montgomery County, Maryland and currently resides in Poolesville, Maryland. He enjoys spending time with his wife and four little boys, as well as playing softball, golf and fishing.
