Ugly driveway? Photoshop!

David Weekley Homes advertisement

Once you get beyond ‘location, location, location’, Real Estate is all about street appeal, right? So you want to make those homes in the brochures look their best! Just have the folks over in IT put their photoshop skills to work and get rid of that pesky driveway!

Voila! Perfect house for the healthy, walking family. Everyone just uses the garage as a giant closet anyway, right?

Classic story from west Texas

Includes dynamite. Need we say more?

See how many bad decisions you can count.

This is not just regrettable plumbing… this is *really* regrettable plumbing. Well worth the 11 min run time.

Sensitive souls might find the language or subject matter offensive. The rest of us just laugh ’til we pee.

Call a plumber? Or an electrician?

Answer:  Yes, both.  And an insurance agent. And a lawyer while you’re at it.

A bit of a bump there. You’ll hardly feel it.

Assuming you’re in a tank.  Heck, I don’t even know if a Humvee could make it into that garage.   I don’t think a Smart Car has a short enough wheelbase to keep from dragging as you hit the crest!

And you didn’t really want those bumpers attached, did you?

But it’ll be great for sledding, right?

Project of the Year – 2013

ProjectOfTheYear1

The correct way: Measure twice, cut once.
The usual way: Measure once, cut two or three times.
This builder: Don’t measure, cut only when you can’t make up for excess length by overlapping or changing the angle, and nail it together (even if you have some screws mixed in with the nails). A tremendous time saver!

ProjectOfTheYear2

Now that’s what I call a quality framing job!

Of course, you can imagine what’s going to happen to all that lumber that’s in direct contact with the ground!

Found on this site… where there are additional regrettable pictures, including the “finished product”.
