'[The housing developer] paid me ten grand to not sue them': Housing developer continually tries to push couple off their land, couple gathers evidence and consults a lawyer

'[The housing developer] paid me ten grand to not sue them': Housing developer continually tries to push couple off their land, couple gathers evidence and consults a lawyer

There was a big shift in the housing market a few years ago, and this couple was right there to witness it happening in their own neighborhood. This couple did everything right while buying a home : they purchased a plot of land, built a home on it, and made sure there was no HOA to control them. But then a certain illness made sure to ruin the early 2020s for all of us, and it had people moving around like crazy. Suddenly, the couple found themselves surrounded by new neighbors. And, as happen…

reddit malicious-compliance contractor money expensive california customer custom client measurement wrong incorrect construction house building

'Trust me, just do it': Contractor scores $12,000 extra on a job because a know-it-all client insists his measurements are accurate; they are not

Clients lie. This is the one thing that is certain for every contractor in every industry. For some reason, know-it-all clients feel like it's some kind of flex to press their hobby knowledge on someone who is literally a professional in that field. In this case, a pushy Californian client was getting his home remodeled and couldn't fight his manly urge to try and teach his contractor a thing or two...

Stairs to nowhere: 20+ Building designs that didn't go as planned

Unusable chairs and stairs to nowhere: 20+ Building blunders that boggle the mind

This isn't just a poorly designed house, it's a poorly designed home. Imagine you buy a house before it's been constructed. You check out the blueprints, and you're no construction expert, so you figure the pros must know what they're doing. But as you can see from the images below, not every architectural project goes as planned! I'm obsessed with the builders who installed an escalator right into the wall of a building. It's the definition of “that's not my job.” They have

'Eat here, get gas & worms': 25+ Hilarious and chaotic design fails

Some people just want to watch the world burn, and they're designing dishes, websites, and clothes! When it comes to design fails, there are a lot that will make you think, “The person who made this had an off day, I see how you could make this mistake.” But sometimes you see things that are so poorly designed, there's no other excuse except the designer really wanted to mess around and cause as much chaos as possible!

30+ Building blunders from people who don't even know which end of a hammer to use

Designing and constructing a building - how hard could it possibly be? Draw a few blueprints here, toss a few bricks and cement there, easy peasy. Joking, of course, but these 35 structures below have suffered from some poor planning. It looks like a lot of these buildings , staircases, and a surprising amount of bathrooms, were all just thrown together as quickly as possible. It's like the construction crew just cared about completing the building ASAP, and didn't even worry about the people u…

Design Nightmares To Give Architects The Creeps

The thing about rooms is that nothing feels wrong with one until something totally is. We've all seen enough bathtubs to know that they shouldn't be carpeted, and a kitchen that's designed to only fit a backwards oven is somehow anxiety inducing. Also what's the deal with people putting bathtubs and Jacuzzis on display in a main living area? What was going on in there? Here are some more rooms with bad vibes.

Interesting, Freaky And Weird Stairs To Look At Without Blinking

Stairs. They're always up to something. They get us places that are way up there. It's like flying with extra steps. Some stairs are beautiful while others are cruel. For stairs are statistically some of the most dangerous places in the home, and a few of these look like some real doozies. For some more junk, here are construction failures that went off the rails.
