Built in traction, for when the floor gets wet, don't want anyone slipping.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


At railing that I build right now guy install first newel post to short wall with 4 finish crews. Customer fired him and call me. Evidently customer think post was to shaky. Former guy said him that he do finish carpentry for 30 years. I think he didn’t walk in a house where is trimming in process in his life.

Instead of putting a blank cover over this LIVE box, let's just stuff it with metal lathe and plaster....

You can't be mad at that, that's a classic.

I find minimum one of those every demo job I do.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


This shower's tile was set with contact cement. In addition, an open air-well above has been draining into the walls, for years. You can see daylight above the rotted header. The bathroom remodeler put in a new ceiling, and couldn't have missed seeing the daylight.

To be honest though, with it being a top chord hanging truss that portion of bottom chord is not structural, really just drywall backing. Still doesn't make it ok but I'll bet he can still get that to pass. Seen somebody do that over a stair well before because he ran out of headroom ??? I was sure it would fail but he got it to pass.

Is the joint unnecessary? Yes. However, it's also clean as a whistle!
