Typical Home Owner (Handyman) job...


jproffer, what I want to know, is where can I get that much cast. I hate these new building products that are out these days. I mean come on, plastic waste and fresh water piping, wiring enclosed in plastic, and what is with putting piping into walls, and using waste products to create building materials.

And why can't I use asbestos sheets amd lead piping. Gee these rules are so hard to follow these days. I am sure glad I still use the NEC that my granddad gave me, that is from back in 1937, along with his other books from that decade. I so not know where I would be without them, since thise rules were so much easier to follow.

Now anuone that believes that line of B.S. I just threw out there deserves to be hung by their jewels from a tree.

I, for one, can't wait til he shows us how to tilt/twist a square board into a limited space (9.25") without getting hung up......if I knew how to do that, it would save a great many headaches.

Tilting walls into place.......twisting joists in like this.......heck, just moving my bookcase from one house to another....I am SO ready to learn THAT trick.

You left out the part, with it fully loaded with books, and knick-knacks sitting on top.

If this kid worked for my grandfather back when he was alive, he would have been fired in the first day, within an hour tops.

In the 3rd original picture you can see the cloth covered romex.....same stuff that is in my 55 year old house....

You know, it is quite possible the original owner was going to the true retro look and used old wireing to get the effect.

Never thought of that...a true enthusiast wouldn't care if it could be seen or not....HE would know.......

What else do you see wrong with this photo?
Okay, we will give you this one. I would say that Bubba and his cousin Billy Bob were drinking too much beer when they did it. But they forgot to use any Duct tape, which would make it compliant.

I can give you a rough estimate on that damage, but oh I forgot that you use that new math, so I have to add 70, subtract 3. So I would say probably 5 years, not.
