Now why in the world?!

Did they need an extra 2 to 3 inches for the car bumper?

As the wife proudly announces on the phone " My Merv did a great job… both car’s fit in the garage. That carpenter that the neighbor referred had no idea what he was talking about."

No, they’d hit whatever, the flat surface left when studs were removed, simply causes less damage and marring on the bumper.

Way better than the tennis ball on a string thing? I guess, lol.

I just had to shake my head in disbelief. There’s brick veneer on the other side.

And why bother leaving the 5" stud ends at the bottom?? Seriously! :slight_smile:

Hey it’s a brick wall, those 2x4’s are wasting valuable space.

I think you just successfully read the mind of someone in the past. :slight_smile:

They were going to install a window over the cripples on the right but could not because it was too low to the floor and created a hazard for children falling so they just blocked it in.:mrgreen:
Or they were going to install a high window on the right and were HAMMERED.:shock:
