Cover the poo

Sometimes we here at Crappier but Cheaper see DIY projects and think… only in (insert neighborhood / town / city). 

And that’s exactly what came to mind when we saw this. Drumroll, please. 


Best guesses?


That’s right, a decorated port a potty. A port a potty with curb appeal. 

Keep the neighborhood beautiful, people!

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?

On the road

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.
