One of the three stub ups was too tall. Bolted my chainvise to my crescent wrench for leverage. Luckily the fill wasn't compacted well yet. This was a new, 6 bay garage for a car collection. Each bay was double wide.

I think the real crime here was committed by whoever picked that god awful tile. Haha
It's real stone, I've seen a number of houses around here with similar stone. The variations are sea creature fossils. It's really cool when you look closely and see the shells.

I know how this plunger feels. Fed up with everyone's schit, it decided to quit.

The ladder was suspended so someone could climb down and get the suction line for the jet pump. The foot valve needed to be changed. The rope was tied to someone and the bumper of the van so someone couldn't fall into the water. :whistle:

I thought he made it across the road 20 miles ago. Got back to the shop and noticed this!

This has happened twice to me, other time the bird was stuck in the bumper hole, head caught between the frame and a mud guard. That one was still alive and not happy when I started pulling his tail feathers to get him out.

Quit nothing. They now identify as an ashtray. They are in the process of transitioning. You need to get more woke and stop letting your implicit bias cloud your thinking so you stop discriminating against houshold gadgets.

Disposable shopping bags. Turns out, there was an old sears steel tank right off the house, under a deck, top rotted out. Snake came out of the tank and grabbed the bags from under the deck. Second pic is the splatter under the deck.

They got a whole new septic system. Got called back a week later for the new main being clogged. Homeowner had taken the septic filter out and left it lying somewhere. Inspector had come and stuck the filter in the inlet tee!! WTF. Thankfully it was a temp inspector from a different jurisdiction.

We have a good number of houses with floors like that out here. Usually old farmhouses. Most common, like my house is 1-1/2 wide.

Back in the day poor people would buy the wide boards because they were cheaper. It takes more time and expense to produce the smaller boards. Kinda a status symbol.

My house was built in 1900 and added onto at least twice. The flooring is a mix. Downstairs are the 1-1/2 boards for entertaining, the bedrooms are all 6” wide.
