When you’re in “GIT ‘ER DONE” mode,
you don’t always consider the long term ramifications.

"Yeah-it said to use 4-1/2" bolts. But I think these nails out of my nail gun will do."

You know you're a redneck when you use a chew can for a junction box.

Pretty safe isn't it? I mean the hot lead is at least a quarter inch from a metal gas pipe and it is almost 48 inches off the ground so children won't touch it

"He told me he was an professional electrician"

Instead of flashing the penetrations, install buckets with pipes under the drips.

Supply air, meet return air.

Main load, acetone, grits, and tool storage panel.

When you do not have an outlet box, use a Nike box. Just do it!

"Screw that I-beam, just cut it. That’s the framer's problem."

If you can't bend metal conduit, just use a few extra junction boxes!

I think this goes to a ceiling fan mounted on the ceiling of a bathroom on the other side of this wall. Maybe.

If you can vent ONE bathroom exhaust into a plumbing vent stack, then you certainly vent THREE!

Yes- it’s ok to connect the dryer vent to the water heater flue.

"Flashing!? We don't need no stinking flashing!"

"Look-I had 18" of pipe and this bag of couplers."

.........ceiling fan in master bath...."Hmm. where does the wire go and how much glue did he use to stick that thing there?

The ad listed the house with a "whole house attic fan". Professionally installed no doubt.

The guy doing my electrical said it would meet code because it was "all he could do since it was a remodel".

Ok, I might get over the toilet paper holder in the shower - but not the electrical outlet in the shower!

We don’t need no stinking code!
