I see a camera man on top of the roof. Looks like an experiment.

No stairs, no door. I guess you just crawl through the window.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Man.... I HATE threads like this. You pop in on the last page and see something interesting. So, you go back a page to find out where a post came from. But, then you see something ELSE interesting and need to go back another page or two to see how that played out. Only to see ANOTHER something you want to check out.

And, before you know it.... you're 15 - 20 pages back and an hour of your day wasted reading all of this funny sh$%

PS As for the "deck" with the hot tub above.... all I can say is WTH were they thinking?!?

I would just blame the designer for putting a big window right there.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


I didn't grab any pictures but the framer down the road had a picker truck lifting his roof sections. 2 went up just fine. The last one folded because he didn't have enough bracing.

After the picker truck leaves he tries to move it with his zoom boom. It started to fold again and he lost it. He dragged it, trashed it and left it in a big splintered pile. I doubt the builder is going to pay for that. All because he can't control his temper.
