    Rehab work in the ghetto


    That was inside a wall, water just pouring out onto the hardwood floor and into the crawl I had to go into.




    Nothing like a door on the second story leading out onto the front porch roof. The sofa outside is nice too.


    An outlet cut into the side of a box. The wire running to it is a very light gauge lamp wire.


    Its flexible duct, the air will push through!

    There's yer air flow issue.


    It's insulated, it'll be fine.


    LOL


    That's in the main hallway. You open the front door and there's the unit. The drain ends right on the other side of that wall and drains two stories down all over the siding.


    Sewage right into the crawl. When we tell the guy who doesn't speak English very well he says, "It's ok, it's ok". My boss said, "NO, NO ITS NOT OK!" That was an interesting install.



    I've got a bunch like this but these are the funniest I think.

    Unbelievable. I would not touch that stuff. What you really have to look out for is any old wire not properly insulated might electriucute the coop out of you. Anyways the owner should be brought up on charges for letting anyone even live there. I understand the need for charity but that is really bad and dangerous.

    These are mostly taken in Richmond, VA. It's also funny you mention getting electrocuted because the electricians run wires and leave them hot with no wirenuts. Just laying in the middle of the crawl lol

    What is "Rehab" work? Like someone owns thier own home and are to ghetto to have heat? Like you and a bunch of HVAC tech go around doing charity work?

    I think rehab means our tax dollars are paying for it.

    I don't what's worse, that outlet, or the idea that someone thought it was okay enough to paint over the tape.
    Nemo me impune lacessit.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.
