Original brick column failed, added wooden makeshift log column, log column eaten by WDO, added another wood column, that too eaten by WDO. Then added an unsecured lolly column on a makeshift “footing”. All columns like this.

edit, one photo was not right side up…

This water heater vent pipe had negative slope and was vented into the masonry chimey with a huge hole in the side. There were bedrooms on the other side of the wall… I shut the water heater off immediately!!

Here is an old brick built tuck-under garage. Note that the floor is created with poured concrete over steel joist. The owner had a wood burning stove below which heated the lower level. All the moisture/condensation from the stove has caused Major Corrosion to the joist, literally eating them away. Would you park your car in this garage?

Ok, these are all interesting and worth a laugh while the heads shaking in disbelief .
#4 has a vote for ingenuity while #5 gets the award for persistence…!??hmmmm. Gonna have to give it to the light pole re-use. Most environmentally freindly!!:slight_smile:

Some really good ones this month, tough choice

Disregard this Poll and vote on this one. http://www.nachi.org/forum/f11/poll-best-defect-pictures-month-maymay-81700/

My mistake.
