    Saw this gem today!

    I had to replace a blower in this wall hung today. The overhang roof was built around it. The unit on the roof is just a condenser coil and fan. Hot gas line and liquid line run from the compressor in the wall hung unit. Never seen this before!

    Thats a real beauty.

    Sometimes I have to marvel at the lengths that some people go to do an improper job. I would swear that they spend more time and energy trying to find short cuts to doing it right, when it would have been cheaper and easier to do it right the first time. And then it would have been done right.

    But they do seem to create some amazing feats in engineering.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    You should have asked them for some Mining supplies ie. Tri-nitro-toluene
    set it underneath the portable office, tell them you are really going to fix up their ventilation problem, light fuse and get outa there fast!
