Check out the mast on this one!
I think that is from an overload on the service wire ( Hanging too much laundry on the line)
Was that service still energized?
Yes it was!! The home is currently lived in.
Hope that their fire insurance is up to date.
I really doubt that these folks can afford any kind of insurance at all. We’re trying to qualify them for a new home.
The mast is straight, the house is crooked. :shock:
The living room, which was like 10 by 12, had a hump in the middle 3 to 4 inches higher than the rest of the floor. The last time I had one of those when we demo’d the house we found a tree stump that the house had settled onto causing the hump.
That’s what happens when you follow “code”… footings on “undisturbed soil”. :shock:
Truly all kidding aside that mast and service cable are a nightmare about to happen. Hopefully someone gets that fixed before someone gets hurt.:eek:
Wow there’s a prize, When you see things like that you know it’s going to be a long day
Been seeing a few like that, but not that extreme. Something will let go any minute on that one.
Good picture. I hate to turn this into a political thing, but I think even the mast is leaning right.
You are correct it is leaning to the right.
That explains why it is not secure.
But that also means, appropriately, that the bottom moves to the left…
Nothing a little Mastic won’t fix.
Wow havent loaded my photos for todays reports, but we could make a before and after out of what I inspected today.
A high school aquaintenace (20 years old) of my daughter died in India last year after trying to hang his laundry on a high voltage line from a second story hotel room window. He lived less than 24 hours after contact, but from the description of his injuries, it may have been a blessing.
