And the aesthetics try to eat you alive
When the cost of a fix
Leaves you in a real bind
You probably will just use electrical tape
And that’s just fine.
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?
Just do your best.
We don’t have much here at Crappier But Cheaper blog. What we do have is a jingle.
Here it goes:
Crappier but cheaper
That’s what gets things done
Crappier but cheaper
It’s ugly but it’s done.
Not this guy. He’s all suited up and looking fine.
In a town where they used to be a parade of tricked-out art cars, this would be considered tame.
Next time, buddy, just get a fresh coat of paint.
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?
This is a chimney elbow, aka chimney pipe, commonly used for well, chimneys and stove pipes exhaust.
Then, there are bus exhaust pipes. Nary the two shall meet. Or so you thought.
This gem combines the two in a way you may have never thought possible. Or thought smart.
But it was functional and held, at least for the few minutes we drove nearby on a highway at high speeds.
This was captured in the Czech Republic. Turns out, people in other countries DIY it crappier but cheaper, too.
