Can’t call this a defect, but it really had me intrigued today. Why would you sink pop or beer cans in the concrete? My guess was they were “forms” for a future post for a handrail or guardrail of some sort. Who knows?
That’s a vehicle ramp to a workshop behind them. The railings idea is the only thing I could think of. The client has 5 yr old twins. I was concerned about them sticking their fingers in and getting cut. But, it is a foreclosure home, and there are a lot more dangers than those buried cans lurking everywhere!
I think the foreclosed people may have even booby-trapped the place. I always do crawl space last. Something caused me to remove the hatch and take a peak before inspecting inside. The main plumbing waste line was taken loose at a 90 and allowing all the waste to collect in the crawlspace!! Yuck!:vomit:
A “hot” black wire was connected to the green grnd screw on a light switch. The entire metal plate of the switch was energized!
I think the place, supposedly vacant for 9 months, should be tested for meth!!!
Good idea, actually. Ever seen one on a chimney? The hole did not go all the way through, perfectly round hole 2" diameter and about 6" deep in a stone chimney. We originally guessed it was for running a gas pipe to the fireplace until we saw it did not go all the way through.
Funny, I am opposite. I don’t mind fountain Pepsi, as long as it has some “kick”, but prefer Coke in a can. My sister in law says Coke tastes “flat”, and I say Pepsi tastes flat.
And is it true that alcohol when mixed with diet drinks acts stronger, quicker? I think that was on one of those evening news programs a short while ago. I just stick with beer occasionally these days. Liquor is just too intense. #-o

Mike Clark!You got me, i was looking to see a photo of some horrific masonry, you know from a drunk concrete guy…
I’m from Pennsylvania originally and it was called Soda not Pop. When I moved to Texas it was all called Coke. What kinda Coke do you want ?
No Rum and Pepsi for me my Hillbillie friend ! Crown and (Diet) Coke for me please :mrgreen:
hahaha! I’ll try to dig up some pics of me and my wife’s uncle when I worked a summer pouring concrete with him! I had no clue what to do, and he would get so drunk I would have to do the edging and final finishing!!:mrgreen:
