    I want to shop there. I don't need the tips, I just want to shop at the store that puts them up.
    And that, boys and girls, is what we in the trade call an "idiot".

    I see all sorts of very unusual concepts from home owners while doing my job. This is a good one. I've seen a floor jack under the middle of a deck holding up the deck that was supporting a hot tub on top of the deck. It seems that at least some people do understand what "load path" means........

    Follow the load path in this work of art. Decks are designed to support 50 lbs. per sq ft. A roof is designed to support 42 lbs. per sq ft in the part of the world where I live. You don't suppose any of the fasteners used to assemble this are susceptible to failure should several feet of wet snow accumulate. I wonder how the footings for the deck are going to hold up when the deck and the roof blow full of snow.

    I don't know what to think about that, as compared to the other. Better: at least they were thinking. Worse: they actually though about it and did that anyway!
    Not to mention that the fasteners around the door probably only go into the siding.

    Some TV crew had fun with that. Notice the cameraman on the roof and the use of a fire engine instead of a garden hose.

    I had to laugh when John Wick was called "Baba Yaga." Baba Yaga is a female witch, not the "boogeyman."

    It's a story and a half house. So the gable vent is down lower to ventilate the triangle shaped part of the attic that is alongside the living space on the half story, same as a gable vent on top of the living space.

    Hmmm, all I see is that they are all holding the iron by the stem...HOT, instead of the handle....
    Plus, no one is using any solder.....that I can see...

    Yeah, holding the irons by the hot bits. I mean, how much did they have to pay these models!?

    (Just being sarcastic ... I'm well aware the irons were not hot)
