One FLUE over the cuckoo's nest... INSPECTION PHOTO of the day

Another creative fix... the previous chimney went down in the last earthquake so they sort of put up some other type of flue and used plumbing tape to hold it secure to the roof.  Obviously, this needed to be redone properly.

Thanks for the laugh.  If they gave out prizes for creative blog titles, you would take top prize!

Hey, at least they attached it under the shingles and not through them.

Most excellent title and appropriate too. On a more sobering thought, it looks like my handy-work. To a guy that isn't that good with his hands, but makes an effort, that is a 10....I am that man. Now I know I am not fooling anyone, so it remains a 10 for honesty sake. Thank you John......

Deferred maintenance John??  Sometimes makes you wonder what people are thinking.  Like no one was going to notice, right??

Thanks for sharing.  A smile a day is a good thing.
