    That's great.

    I bet when they were done they were so proud there weren't any leaks...with only a few marks on the walls!

    Ugh...where do people still use that nasty wood panelling? I think the hacks were trying to do the homeowner a favor.

    In school i was always taught to use a shield and in our field when in a home, when using oxy acetylene you dont want to have spiders going onto a white curtain.

    Are you sure that's not an outdoor monument? Looks more like a rogue flock of pigeons.

    I get a kick out of the chrome plate. Even thought it is the wrong size at least they tried to make the job look good.
