    The things you see

    I was going through some old photos and came across these, I just dont know what some people are thinking. What you are looking at is 2 x 4 holding up a rooftop unit, because the curb adapter they installed was lopsided.
    Looks like the orginal curb was a 5 ton, new unit is 7 1/2 ton.

    uhmm.... no.

    Sometimes I wonder if they ever consider how they would reasonably explain this stuff to their boss or the owner when things like that go horribly wrong?

    I guess we need inspectors. If one of those fell out, a gas leak could occur.
