Some Funny Friday Fotos - How Not To Install A Commode

These photos are so funny that I had to bring them around for another post.
To call these creative plumbing installations "solutions" may be stretching
real estate advertising (to put it mildly).  These bring a whole new level of
construction don'ts for inspectors everywhere!

Door fix  Tight quarters

Dueling  Long arm required

 

 

And just when you thought you had seen it all...
this creative installation comes up with a whole new use for a traffic cone!

OMG, Lisa... these are totally hysterical. But actually, I had a new construction home where they did just that with the tp holder... you would need the arms of an organutan... I made them move it!

Morning again Lisa.

Well when you thought you had seen it all, up comes the realization you haven't...

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty AR LLC) 4 months ago

Haha. What the heck were they thinking when those bathrooms were designed?

Good morning Lisa Von Domek,

These are hysterical but you really wonder what could they have possibly been thinking? No common sense just get it done! Thanks for the chuckle this Friday morning.

Thinking?  I think that was was lacking Kat Palmiotti but we  are kind to give them the benefit of the doubt!

So true Dorie Dillard get it done, no matter what!  Yikes!

I agree Sheri Sperry - MCNE® Yikes sums it up nicely!

Good morning Lisa.  All I can hope for is to never find myself needing a bathroom in any of these places.

Good morning Lisa. This is really creative and oh so funny too. I guess there is always a way.

Now that's how to put a positive spin on things Wayne Martin !

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

I agree Sheila Anderson creative and funny...but nothing we ever want to see in our homes!

 

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

Those are photos of toilets that are not acommodating. Couldn't help the pun.

Posted by Joe Pryor, REALTOR® - Oklahoma Investment Properties (The Virtual Real Estate Team) 4 months ago

Those are crazy and make me think that perhaps an outhouse or port a potty might have been a better option, haha.

Hello Lisa --- "clever" solutions indeed. There's always something afloat.

Posted by Michael Jacobs, Los Angeles Pasadena Area Real Estate 818.516.4393 (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) 4 months ago

Lisa: All of these are hilarious and sad at the same time (crappy workmanship). Evidently common sense is not always so common.

Lisa the last picture could prove to be a little messy ....... LOL

That was a good one Joe Pryor !  Have a wonderful weekend!

Pretty unbelievable aren't they Brian England ?!!

 

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

Clever indeed (LOL) Michael Jacobs but I am trying to not dwell on the "afloat" in your comment! 

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

I agree Anita Clark and I hope that I never run across one of these on a job in real life...I know I wouldn't be able to keep my tongue civil!  LOL

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

It's just so wrong George Souto and there's no good spin for it!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

Oh how funny. I have actually installed a couple of toilets and it isn't easy lining them up with the waste line. This made me think of that adventure.

Installing a commode can be a challenge Debbie Reynolds but I know that you or I would never stoop to these shortcuts!

And hence the expression "seeing is believing"! ;-)

Good morning Lisa - OMG those are unbelivable.  I can't imagine walking in on one of those.

 

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) 4 months ago

Isn't that the truth marti garaughty and even seeing makes it hard to believe!  LOL

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

Sit very carefully Endre Barath, Jr. very carefully indeed! 

 

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

But I bet you can visualize walking out when discovering one of these Grant Schneider ...possibly running?  LOL

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) 4 months ago

Oh my, now I HAVE seen it all! How funny and to imagine that people actually installed these and LIVED like this! 

I did have one recently with new construction that the TP holder was actually too close to the toilet - you couldn't put the seat up! Of course, the builder corrected it after our first walk-through but, makes you wonder what they were thinking when they origially installed it that way.
