You know there really is nothing wrong with these types of outlet adapters – they are UL listed after all… But when you do this, you just might be… Breaking a few codes, voiding the UL listing, looking to start a fire, & the list goes on. With that here is a bonus one for […]
Wacky Weds: It’s not just plumbers…
I couldn’t help but laugh, good luck blaming that on the plumbers… Ahh you were trained by one who also does drywall – got it. On the energy efficiency front, very cool seeing a California Corner in this 1928 house Yes folks that is the corner of a 2 story house they notched out, but […]
Wacky Weds: Not a green roof?
I was driving the other day & it seemed like there was a contest on one street for who had the greenest roof… The winner was: We have covered everything from hot roofs to cool roofs and even shown a few pics of true green roofs but sorry folks – that isn’t a green roof. […]
Wacky Weds: A gutter used inside?
I have heard of people using gutters inside but I sure didn’t expect to see this, especially in a commercial building. Got to say the drain line setup was top notch but the work done on the metal framing… must have been a plumber
Wacky Weds: Got a shoehorn handy
In auto mechanics many gripe about the engine being built around the part you need to remove… but in a house? Yep the water heater is not only jammed tight against the return duct, but the water meter sticks out in front of it by about an inch. The Gas line doesn’t run straight up […]
Wacky Weds: Nice Door
Talk about doing a double take: When I asked the homeowner what happened they essentially said that it happened right after the temps hit the -20° mark, it was pristine till then… I got to say it looks like it was maintained (UV coating appeared good) & while they were right that the temps played […]
Wacky Weds: Can Fiberglass ever be…
I sense a Monday musing coming out soon but in the meantime, I have to ask… If you look on the other side of this wall, it is an honest to god “” install, but as you can see by this picture this would be considered ““ – while some might argue “” that would […]
Wacky Weds: Conduit for water pipe?
The polar vortex sure did some damage with frozen water lines, but this one made me do a double, ok make that a triple take… Someone used conduit for the water lines??? You can easily see the difference between the copper fittings & pipe (yes that is rust on it also). Interestingly you might notice […]
Wacky Weds: Just a slight bow…
Wow – this piece of drywall was bowed out almost 3″ above the fireplace… The culprit? Well besides the change of paint color making it obvious the answer is two-fold. The first was it was never screwed or nailed in properly. Now even if this happens you won’t get a bow like this without water […]
Friday Follow Up – Frozen Wall Fixed
You may well recall this massive retaining wall fail which started out like this back in January of 2017 and by March of 2017 it looked like this… Well on the good news front they finally have it fixed – the next three pics were taken June 15th, 2018 while they were reconstructing it… As […]
