When I first looked, thought it was some fancy dancy modern design.

But I rotated the picture and then I knew it must be near the ocean, on account I could see the waves...

It almsot ( I said "almost") makes ya wantto pull the shingles off, just to witness what an abortion of a framing/sheathing job took place.

These are the products of people who call themselves "custom builders", and the customers who are willing to pay 2x too much for the privilege of saying the have a curved porch, but won't pay the 2.5x to have it done by a competent builder.

Such is life - as it is, as it always has been, and as it will always be.

Place next door looks nice tho.

Small Town Guy nailed it. Higher end development for this area built in the 90's. People too cheap to get a decent builder and just a terrible design. Should have taken a picture of the whole front of the house. There are a couple of better built houses nearby with a similar style roof and eyebrow dormers.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Customer had two ceiling fans in his bedroom. He asked me to remove them and put just one in between where the two were. So I remove the first fan and first thing I notice was no electrical box. I figured they probably attached the fan bracket to a joist. Nope. The fan was only being held up by two 1/8" toggle bolts. I have no idea how these fans didn't fall. They were mounted on a 13" high ceiling. So I went and told the customer what I found and he said that they were installed by a licensed local electrician. Guess who we won't be using in the future.
