    Somebody walked away proud of their work

    One our guys was changing out a RTU today and saw this on the roof. It was none last week. They stole the 120 VAC. from the convenience outlet that was on the unit we were changing out. Took the outlet out of the box and dropped it on the room. Wired up the unit and sealed the bell box with a roll of electrical tape

    Ran away is more like it.
    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?

    Well that's a new one. I'm sure they weren't expecting to have that inspected.

    No worries. Water never builds up on flat roofs. We can punch out hole right here with a hammer.
    It's an upside down world we live in.

    It’s a bath room fan. When it rains that part of town can get a true down pour. When it snows, once or twice a year, we will get 6-8 inches that will melt by noon. Potential of a good flood down stairs.
    Showed the building owner and it will be addressed by the weekend.

    I absolutely love the disco on conduit stub, attached to a unistrut bone, resting on a stepping stone. Then laying over on the roof. They could have at least used a duct strap to tie the bone to the stepping stone!
