That should stay up with that many braces... is that upper deck cribbed for concrete? Maybe the siding and windows are shear, gotta brace it to replace it. Neat looking site nonetheless.

It must have taken a lot of thinking to do all that. I wonder if someone got trapped inside?

Security, No thief would dare venture onto that deck. Or steal the trailer from the unpredictable SOB that dreamed that up. You know he would get off on insanity plea after he dispensed with the thief in a unique fashion.

Looks like the guy was bound and determined to use every scrap of lumber he had been storing in his garage,to prove to his wife they were needed.

Folks, I highly recommend zooming in for max effect.

PC keyboard reminder: click the pic twice, then "ctrl +" a few times, F11 for full screen.

( "Ctrl -" and F11 returns you to normal. )

Re: I Dare Anyone To Make Sense Of This, Seriously Wtf.


Looks like the house is about to collapse or fall over judging by all the bracing and come alongs, is that a steel beam coming out the side of the house? Wow the more I look the more I see, is that a 2x tied to the light pole balancing a bucket? Pink sting line from the light pole to railings?

I feel so much better about myself now. I guess I'll let it slide the next time a job looks slightly messy. How do you even work in that mess?

I know it looks like hell...but is anyone else REALLY curious as to what they are trying to accomplish?
If that's some form of shoring, it sure is nasty.
Can you swing by this week and see what the hell is going on there?

My guess is the deck is new and pulled away from the house.
