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.
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.
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.
Somebody let some air in and some moisture out! These balconies won’t make it without some help.
Is this a unique approach to rotting-balcony ventilation? Maybe or maybe not. The crappier part was letting them get to the point of rot. These are the ones that made it. The lucky ones. Or the unlucky ones?
Reduce, reuse, recycle. It’s an important lesson, one that children can learn from an early age.
Tires are sturdy, long lasting and have lots of reuse possibilities. Holding a little kids bottom while they swing high into the air seems like a really fun way to make good use of old tires. And unless you are making tire furniture, swings are the best alternative.
Crappier but cheaper, BUT totally cool.
