Catwalk

We’ve been quiet over here at Crappier but cheaper. The fact is, it takes a lot to impress us and meet the quality bar. The DIY work we’ve been seeing recently? It’s just too good. Until today. 

Oh, how I wish there had been some creature in this contraption when CBC drove by! 

This homemade catwalk (or at least that’s what we assume it is) on the second floor apartment is crappy but also pretty darn cool. It joins together two windows likely (hopefully?) in the same apartment. 

But this cat has options. And ways to hide just out of reach. 


Do cats feel fear? It’s worth driving by his gem again to find out. 

It’s also worth driving by in an effort to confirm the pet this is meant to serve is indeed a cat. Active Guinea Pig anyone?

Short people got no reason

When you’re job, after installing a new window, is to add caulk in order to finish the job, what should you do? 

Well, you should probably caulk it and finish the job. Consider it otherwise unfinished. 

But what if you are short? Now that’s a predicament. 

Not for this window installer. When ‘he’ found he was just a bit too short to reach the caulk to the top, did he get a ladder? Grab a chair? Ask someone for help? Jump? 

Nope. 

Just do your best. 


This deserves a closer inspection to see how close short guy really got. Yup, just a bit too short. 


Want to bet there’s missing caulk along the top? You feeling lucky?

Cheaper but cooler

Not all Crappier but Cheaper features are actually crappy. This DIY roof bench (yes, roof bench) is made from two snowboards. We assume they are old, perhaps broken. Yet we don’t truly know because We were not willing to scale the building to confirm or deny. We are dedicated, but there are limits.

 

Now we don’t see a window nearby or any obvious way by which a human could access the snowboard bench. That’s just part of the magic.

Or maybe someone inside the house is calling up a friend to say, hey friend, want to come over and hang out on my roof bench? Want to?
