A home inventory is a record of all the items that are located within the premise that is insured by your home insurance. It can include outbuildings such as a garage, casita, or shed. It also includes basements and attics. The traditional way to record this was manual with a pad and pen. Going from room to room and writing down what was in the room, closets, and other storage pieces. This written record can be supplemented with photos to show exactly what each room or building looked like prior to any damage or destruction.
These days you might also choose to do a digital home inventory which might to easier to store online.
