It's not. Buuut, I have way more than I thought. 80' of 1", maybe 3/4 didn't look close enough.

you would never think pipe bending is hard but it's basically a math equation and an art, I'm sure once you get it, it's second nature, I'm basically right behind eagle, 60% framing done so need to finish that then electrical and some plumbing, going to buy 25 conduits for practice

Since kitchen is on hold for a bit we decided to tear up the back room. It's small, we were going to knock walls down and expand master, but since all of this we just kind of decided to fix it right and get out of here.. here's some of the shit we've been dealing with...




One shim I found was a yard stick from 1969. From the Ford dealer in town

A good home inspector would have spotted that hack pretty easily. That's just sheer negligence/laziness. A $0.99 handy box extension ring is too much work, lets create a fire hazard instead

Working on the Laundry room at the new house.

Here it was when we got it:



Here it is now (Courtesy of a neighbor remodeling and tossing their old cabinets).



Next I need to do a slop-sink and paint everything (and fix the walls from the old shelves).

Here's what I've found so-far in my house:

Kitchen Chandelier:



(No Nut on the HOT wire)

Entryway behind a blank gang box cover:



(It was under electrical tape, but really, he couldn't be bothered to just use a damn wire not???).

And some amusing colors under wall plates:

If I were you, I'd be more upset that the plate covers weren't removed for painting...
