Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


This has probably been posted before but I haven't seen any threads or recent ones. However we all go to those jobs and look at something just to end up confused and absent minded about what we are looking at and the only thing going threw our minds ends up being wtf was this guy thinking. Feel free to post you're wtf work finds as well.

However, I came across this. The only thing I can think is he literally took the phrase "tack it together" in a very literal sense.

Got a call today from a GC I do quite a bit of work for. It was a "can you take a look at something and price out a fix?" Looks like this at all 24 points of attachment....

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


At my BIL’s house. Apparently the person who installed the crown didn’t know how to cope.

Kinda looks like the cabinet guy did his crown and someone added the wall crown later. It’s even the same profile...

That's just a caulk gun away from perfection.

A little bit of 1/2 inch latex caulk and a good painter will handle that.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Go ahead and laugh. I performed a 1/4" caulk miracle on crown in my own house this month. I did a triple layered application of my own proprietary caulk blend to fill the gap and spread it perfectly smooth with a plasterer's knife.
I kid you not, it looks absolutely perfect. I'm almost more proud of that joint than I am the other 3 that are actually done properly.

Because the faucet assembly came with tub downleg and they didn't know how to blok it?

Because they liked to wash their feet a lot?

Easy fill for the dogs water dish?

Give me a few, I'll think of more.

I sometimes see this install so water temp can be tested and adjusted with a foot. Does look very cheesy in this instance
