What Were They Thinking?
On occasion we observe a construction detail that causes us to think or even say aloud, “What were they thinking?” Here are a few:
Why is this chimney so tall? I’ll bet Santa doesn’t use this chimney.
Why are the ends of these shingles exposed? This looks like it could be a leaker.
Yikes, that looks like a lot of shingles on that roof!
Something looks wrong with that roof vent. What would be the correct term for this installation? upside down or backwards?
I think the code limit was exceeded on stacked blocks.
Is this why the code does not allow the venting of a dryer into a crawlspace?
This weaved valley almost makes me dizzy, but as I focus I notice that the valley is not symmetrical. A valley ought to be symmetrical.
