Post structures that are dangerous, unstable, funny or 'last minute fix'
your mum lol
how will op ever recover
OP is actually ded
>>1621652Why don't they at least just use a ladder and pulley, if you want to go low effort, at least make a structure where it's safe to do that.
>>1621652Seriously for a moment, what kind of peanut-brain thought that a stair like that was a good idea or even possible?
>>1621727I’m gonna guess a Brazilian decided this was a sensible idea
>>1621732I may be remembering this wrong but I think this is mexico
>>1621769Third world wherever the fuck it isLook at the fucking brick workIf the image was a bit better we'd be able to read someof the shit laying around and know for sure
>>1621727>>1621732>>1621769>>1621823honestly might be kinda interesting looking if reinforced with rebar
>>1621866It's not thick enough even with 3/4" rebar.
>>1621652If you haven't heard of it, look up "shed of doom".It's on a sport bike forum.Just do it. Srsly. You will be rewarded with laffs.
>>1622257yeah i'm pretty fucking triggered
>>1622257why dont you give me a link you lazy fucking nigger.
>>1622314It's the first google result lazy ass
Still. They're using bricks. It's actually stronger than the average burgerhouse.
>>1621652Here op, I'll stay true to your thread
>>1622257wtf, a group of schoolkids could do better
>>1624025is this safe? i have a partially rational fear of stairs
>>1624025yeah, this won't fly by the safety regulations
>>1624025>>1624032Winding stairs like that would be illegal in the USA.
>>1624026yes if you put some railings on it. Tensioned steel cables hold it together.
>>1624040Land of the freeHome of the brave
>>1624040>illegal in the USA.No it's not, against code if you do not have railings, but that is all. It is mostly an insurance thing, but if you can afford such a stairway you can afford the insane premiums any insurance company is going to charge for such a stairwell without railings. If you have the time and money you can get exemptions to much of the building code and outside of the metros the code tends to be much more lax, in rural areas it is often non existant for single family home, most counties can not afford to send an inspector out to the sticks for every little thing and only check the big things like utility hookups.
>>1622363*screams externally*Imagine being the poor fucker tearing down the ceiling only to find that.
>>1621652Is that mid demolition or retards with 2x4s
>>1624060>against code if you do not have railings,even with railing, pie winder stairs are not legal per building code in the 3 USA midwest states were I've encountered that part of the building codes.
>>1624062>*screams externally*i hate you people
>>1624241I LOVE you people.
This thread is kind of reddit.
>>1624241>>1624310*smacks lips*Watchu mean, YOU PEOPLE?
>>1622257https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chuWQItCOb4I built a better """""shed"""""" in middle school
>>1624058...nation of the fat
>>1624213I do not believe they are all out against code in any state for single family homes, perhaps in some counties/cities. In my experience they just have limits on how much a tread can taper over a given length and minimum and maximum width. Gave a quick look, can not find anywhere where they are outright illegal, few places do not allow them as the only/main stairwell but will allow them as a secondary.
>>1624040Montreal is known for it's winding stairs. They're everywhere but are now illegal to build because they're so fucking dangerous. People constantly slip on ice and eat shit in them. Still, they are so beautiful. It's just a shame to think that someday we won't have our beautiful, impossible to move furniture, windy staircases with knee-high railings.
>>1622363When you see it...
>>1621652>'last minute fix'>relative buys remote area house with flat top>roof has been done new recently>horibble job done, but looks waterproof>one long area of the ceiling in one room is noticeably colder, specially in winter, room aint used too much and house was dirt cheap anyways so it doesnt matter>roof gets leaky>water is super muddy >roof doesnt look muddy despite for the typical dirt you get on one of those>water coming out of the roof doesnt stop being muddy>area that is colder starts to sag on top of the roof>wtf>they open the roof eventually>the area that was cold aint isolated with EPS like the rest of roof, its filled with earthApparently they ran out of EPS for a smaller area while doing the roof, just filled what was missing with earth and never told anyone. Firm that was responsible for it could not be made accountable, because it gone bankrupt earlier.
>>1624393Eat shit you fucking peasouper. Get a fucking life useless hab.
I have some Terrible Stairs.
>>1621727You have obviously never been in the third world.
>>1621652looks just the like blueprints to me
>>1621727its quite possiblenot like that tho
>>1621652The brick looks like its from vietnamt. viet
>>1624025>>1624040That isn't finished. The final product has railings and all that jazz.
>>1622363Took me a while. I think I would run.
>>1622363>>1624062>>1624399>>1624854If you ninny's would look and pay attention, you'd see that the ceiling is coming donw because there was obviously a WALL there under that beam. Which, while that big huge cut is less than optimal, when there was a wall underneath it was supported and the load was carried.It's pretty clear someone got the idea to "open plan" a remodel and took out the load bearing wall under that I-beam and part of the drywall ceiling without investigating.You can tell I'm right by the 2 different ceiling materials, the tell-tale where the drywall stops is paper tape where the ceiling drywall met the wall drywall
>>1624628What the fuck even? What's running in that specific spot that the stairs need to go UP?
>>1624867I think they closed off that one door forever. some horror movie shit or something. You can see the line of the original flat below the "up/down" stairs.
>>1624026>>1624032>>1624025Look at the center spline. It has some pretty hefty reinforcement going down the center.
>>1624867Must have been a gravitational anomaly
>>1624893Is that insulation? In the fucking stairs?
>>1624867>>1624893FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MONTRESOR
>>1624931I have no clue you are but you have just added to my TS collection. Thank you, have more stairs.
>>1624937Yes, for the love of God!
>>1624930Imagine. Just for 20 seconds of your life.... Please pretend you are some CSI person trying to figure out that fucked up shit. How did that person rip and bend that paper-mache railing. It's like a kill trap. Some fucked up cake maker made a sugar stair railing. Nobody wins there.Who geology here?
>>1624893I have trouble believing this is even real. It's so fucked up it makes me think it's staged, like a bizarre form of "art."Like why is there a missing step, why is the first step about 2ft off the floor, why is there insulation(?) inside the steps, what is the text on that little black rectangle on the floor..
>>1624893>>1624960Yeah I thought so. This is from some art exhibit.https://www.flickr.com/photos/t_schnitzlein/albums/72157621049729460
>>1624858No. You're inventing something that isn't there. Why in the living fuck would you go to the expense of installing a steel above a load bearing wall anyway?
>>1624241Suck it up sweety
>>1624858Used to be has nothing to do with it. Not an expert , but the way it is looks unsafe to me.
>>1622363No lie I've seen steel cut like that for ductwork and gas lines but it was.literally in a back room with almost no load on it. Granted it wasn't cut like that through the bottom plate but meh
>>1626029Sadly, the doors are fake and just applied to the outside of the building, you can not actually get to those stairs without climbing the outside of the building or descending from the roof, it is an art thing.
>>1626029>>1626041Damn, that sucks, I'd have loved to see some sort of Deus Ex or Perfect Dark early-map-limitations thing like that actually work.
>>1626029is that the sims
>>1626029>>1626041>tfw use jetpack to get to consoicuous out-of-the-way place>tfw no treasure here>tfw doors are just textures>tfw out of jetpack fuel
>>1621652>Post structures that are dangerous, unstable, funny or 'last minute fix'
>>1626545much of america is retarded, but that is not a mcmansion. a mcmansion is a huge cheap house like pic related.
>>1626546>but that is not a mcmansiontrue, but still unstable by some criteria. how much will roof like this last? Imagine having snow on it
>>1626549>true, but still unstable by some criteria. how much will roof like this last? Imagine having snow on ityou cannot look at >>1626545 and determine ANYTHING about the design and construction of the roof. I paint american houses, and the shit materials they use rot all the damn time, but I've never seen a roof failure, because framing, sheathing, and roofing are easy to do correctly. There is the occasional leak due to an ice dam on a complex roof, but in general, roofs don't fail due to being unstable. What do you mean by that anyway.
>>1626551An osb board murdered his parents. Now he is red brick salesman
>>1624930It's an art installation. Look below the last stair, there's a name tag
>>1626549>Imagine having snow on itJudging by that slope, I'm betting it doesn't snow a lot there.What exactly is your problem with wood rafters? The osb strapped to the side is just reinforcement and probably not 100 percent necessary for structure. But hey, I'm not a structural engineer and neither are you.
>>1626546Do you have any more pics of this house? That roofline is pissing me off. Design and function.
>>1626652Not that specific house, but https://mcmansionhell.com/
>>1626381HA! I enjoy your style of thinking. Also I must go reinstall Duke Nukem 3D
>>1622363typical mexican hax
Korean hotel in Dhaka
>>1624931I'm 90% sure I've been in this building, and the railings pictured are no longer there.
>>1622363can someone explain whats wrong here i never built a house before
>>1627093The red pipe is running through a massive cut in the red I-beam running perpendicular to it. Ergo, a weight intended to be supported by an entire I-beam is now supported by a tiny sliver of remaining metal.
>>1624858>there was obviously a WALL>wasSo we agree that its current condition is terrifying, or...?
>>1627095Holy shit i understand now thanks anon
>>1624930How else are they gonna float?
>>1627101I shouldnt have laughed at this.
>>1624628god damn möbius ass staircase
>>1627073probably a high transit area were people/tourists/bums used to sit down to rest or hangout.
>>1627073In mexico all the walls have something like this on it. Either metal spikes or glass. It's actually an anti-burglary mechanism.
>>1624931That looks like the result of a soccer mom complaint to the owner/manager of the building.
>>1627073Beats the fuck out of those blunt anti-homeless spikes in the US
>>1626545ha! I watched that Mcmansion being built near Springbank in Alberta. I used to drive past it every Week.
>>1624930Sound proofing comes to mind.. though there is better ways to do it..
>>1624627Me trying to build a mountain staircase in minecraft
>>1626644The OSB is necessary. When it rots out the roof will have to be replaced.
>>1627939>>1622257Found a link that includes what I believe to be all photoshttps://m.imgur.com/a/wixkx
>>1627958That's pictures up to page 17.I find his details in writing funny and interesting too.
>>1627946OK what? I think if that osb wasn't on the rafters the roof wouldn't cave in. Or are you talking about the roof decking, which looks like plywood? If you hate wood that much, what is your house made from?
>>1627984An I-beam without the connecting long vertical line loses most of its bending strength.No reason to be a bitch about this, laddie.
>>1621652The monstrosity of 100 year old shit. It's actually sturdy. The front is just rotting from the shit siding. They recently cut trusses to stand up in some of it and the roof is bowed a bit. Pretty soon going to jack it back up and rais all the rafters to 8'. But i want to reinforce it as i go and build shelves alall of the way around it. I have given up trying to level everything and put support posts up and stuff. I'm just attacking it with a framing gun and a truckload of lumber so i can make it a storage shed and pack my shit in it. I'll unhoarder all my shit from 3 moves and a garage destruction over winter. Siding is all shit but vinyl is cheap and new on the house i bought next to it. Most of it's ground level and i can get a buddy up high. Roof should be good for close to 10 years. Gives me time to get shit in order sobi can rent it out and move a little more /out sometime.All of this pipe nonsense if fucking going too.And I'm shoveling rock down for a floor until i can afford the time and effort to concrete it.Father in law was kind enough to give me 3 new double paned windows he had for the shitty broken one i have atm.Itll be alright once i get some sgit done and get the winter to get it insulated and fixed up.Or just leave it a storage shack. I dont know yet.It depends on how much shit i descide to keep and how much i want to give away or toss. Too much other shit going on to worry about it
>>1627958What in methamphetamine fuck richard. AHAHAH
I didnt take pictures but I just re did a deck from a second story on a house he just bought where the deck was falling apart despite obviously being done recently >36'x12' deck >columns only 4x4 and spaces 12' apart >beam is 2 ply 2x6 spanning over 12 fucking feet >no joist hangars >take trex coverings off the posts and railings >the posts are made of 3 2x4s and not blocked in or bolted to the frame at all just a couple of nails >top part of railings are q bunch of strips of plywood nailed together >no proper footings, just those pre fabricated ones you use for a deck that's like 2 feet off the ground or less on a huge deck that's on the second story >none of it is pressure treated It was a friend of mine. He had a party a few weeks back and it damb near collapsed with like 5 people standing on it.
>>1626549>>1626545There is nothing wrong with Wood and Engineered wood products. They have plenty of strength, especially for residential construction. Most problems arise in wood homes from contractors not doing proper jobs with weatherproofing, and even then it still lasts 10's of years at least before any problems arise. As well, wood construction is faster, cheaper, and issues with wood structures are MUCH easier to remediate than concrete or masonry.Also engineered wood I joists like that hold a substantial amount, especially considering the spacing. Stop sperging out about wood.t. structural engineer
>>1624058free to die due to your own stupidity, that's real libertarian freedom
>>1624930>Is that insulation? In the fucking stairs?
>>1624940fucking third worlders, i mean who just leaves perfectly good stairs laying around outside.. wasteful.
>>1626029hah, like they're saying "take the backdoor to the higher-ups, if you dare"
>>1627958this makes me angry in such a strange way
>>1624946Looks like a temporary construction barricade.Those stairs don't look very old, and neither do the railings or asphalt.
>>1624627How does this fucking happen?>>1624628Trying to build the MC Escher staircase?
