Post shit thats shit, but in the DIY spirit. Bonus points for Christmas shit.Previous Thread >>2259398
>>2271581I see nothing wrong. Are you afraid of it freezing or something?
>>2271581Building predates indoor plumbing. It either gets hung on the outside wall or the building gets knocked over.
>>2272229>predates??????Thats a postwar building..... HOW?!
>>2272295not that uncommon youd be surprised. even in burgerland there are some older 1950s hotels ive been to that only have a sink in the room and bathrooms/showers are separate room down the hall some.
>>2271581>tfw your plumbers also need work at height license and a manlift
>>2271656Oh I hate this
>>2272350>work at height licensewhat is this cuckeryhere your employer has to give you a medical checkup (vision depth, diabetes etc.), but that's it
>>2271581Think of the absolute havoc you could cause for the people on the bottom floor with a small drill and a can of crazy foam.
>>2272564Pretty sure any non-shithole place with functioning osha equivalent requires you to have one to wrench pipes some 10 meters above the ground
>>2272650Love it. This is the apartment door that all the religion pushing groups will skip.
>>2272675if prepping the bull is a sign of civilization then sure
>>2271581Why waste interior space with a shit pipe?>>2272229Nope.
>>2271656>didn't hit any bonesIdiot got lucky, that'll suck for a long time but it might heal up okay.
>>2271656Shopped. This is a composite of two injury images: the nails are different colors.
>>2273633shit bait, but checked
>>2273633It's actually a single image of two handsThe gold ring hides the seam
>>2272229>Building predates indoor plumbing.nah not necessarily. I've seen this before. The original plumbing gets into such a bad state that half the walls would have to be torn out to fix it right, so it's cheaper to do this. I've also seen it inside, where they just put the new pipes on the walls and bore holes through the floors for it. It's trashy, but if it's all you can afford, then it's what you have to do.
>>2271581this is proof that niggers didn't exist in the Britain till about 10 years ago
>>2272650So, do all the apartment doors look like that? Or did one tenant just say fuck it to their security deposit?
>>2274045>security depositThe walls look like an ex-commie land so they own that shit, they're not some 1st world land of the free rentcucks lmao
>>2274287Why don't you people understand that some people own apartments in USA and some people rent them in Europe.
>>2274293Why don't you say that to >>2274045
>>2275515hey nanna why you always disagreeing with everyone. geez
>>2272564im not even allowed past the first rung of a ladder because i do not have a working at height ticket
>>2272190>storing pots and pans in the oventhe real crime
>>2275515for bitches who be like
>>2275659man they really do control everything over there. ffs
>>2273410>Why waste interior space with a shit pipe?If temperatures ever get close to or below freezing, the liquid glowing down the waste pipe can start freezing, then clog, then you have waste flowing back into the apartments, or the waste can freeze enough to crack the cast iron waste pipes. There is a reason in cold areas that plumbing is inside.
>>2272349The Ace Hotel in Portland is like that.
Hello everyone, my bed is still a bed, but my wife is unhappy about it, and gave me the notwife papers, but that's ok, me and my girlfriend are gonna get a school bus and make an RVAny tips so my creations don't make us thankful for life?
>>2277468>my bed is still a bed,Tell me about your floor. Where is it?
>>2277729About 7 feet beneath me
>>2277750Tell me about your whore. Where is it?
>>2278191I don't understand the question, if you mean my ex, I don't know, she left recently and told me I had until last Saturday to leave, I haven't received eviction papers though so I'm figuring it out
>>2273670no way that pic is real
>>2278638its true thats me but i wont tell you how i did it
>>2275681>wasting all that good storage space
>>2272190I have a 70 cm wide hob and 60 cm wide oven under it, off-center because small kitchen.This image is like personal attack or something.
>>2277468This has been better than any soap opera. Was it the bed that made her divorce you or did you build the bed to try to keep her?
>>2279310She didn't like me playing vidya and demanding tendies all day, she wanted more sex but she started getting old
>>2278638The thumb was cut off before the first picture was taken. It looks like it is attached because of clever positioning. The left index finger is hiding the cut.

>>2280579It's great, you can install whatever sink you want
>>2272650Here’s your colonial bro
>>2280579i'd never buy a new build straight from the builders.the amount of dodgy shit you'll discover is insane.my aunt once removed moved into a new build and the skylight fell out because they forgot to install it.

>>2280579Is that the Kardashian sink that doesn't splash? Saw it on Cribs
>>2277468I remember when I was a /tallbed/ guy. Family had a bunch of spare mattresses and nowhere to put them so I just put them on top of my bed and it ended up being a good 6' tall or so (can't remember exactly how tall it was, but it was taller than me at the time). It was pretty comfy actually and kind of cool sleeping that close to the ceiling. Doggo I had at the time loved it too, she would sproink up to chill with me sometimes when I was lying in bed being a miserable shit.Now I'm rocking /shortbed/. I've just got on of those cheap air mattress on the floor where I live now. My family questions me and keeps asking if they can send me a bed, but I actually find this comfier than a traditional mattress. Besides, Idon't want to get a real bed since then I'll have to get a desk if I want to shitpost on my computer in bed; I can't fucking afford that shit.>>2280597>not just putting some caulk on the countertop leading the water towards a piece of slightly discolored PVC pipe that drains in to the shower drainIt's like you don't want to fuck with whoever gets the house after you or somethingAnyway, you guys want me to take a picture of my shower? The mixer valve went on it and the landlord refused to send someone out to fix it and refuses to compensate me for fixing it properly, so I just blocked off the tub spigot with a few very carefully applied layers of tape and glue since it was cheaper than to buy tape and glue than it would be to buy the shit I would need replace the mixer valve.
>>2282488Show us anon. Show us with beautiful pictures
>>2277468Invest in some solar panels, or atleast a 12v solar panel to charge your car battery without an alternator.
>>2282488>a few very carefully applied layers of tape and glueYes please
>>2274293Rent free, or with rent, depending on the country
>>2282499>>2282819Here you go. I had forgotten that I fixed the leaky drain with some tape too.Basically all I did was wrap the electrical tape (there's some ducktape in there too as you can see) very carefully around the spigot a couple layers thick each time in a spiral towards the actual opening with extra on the end. Then I coated each layer in extremely cheap superglue as a niggerrigged sealant. Repeated this process a few times to get the final result. This was like the third try where I actually used enough material and applied enough effort for it to work properly.Oh, and there's some waterweld in the actual thing itself and to seal the whole thing to the wall properly (there was ~1/8" gap between it and the wall beforehand). Not a lot inside it, but just a little to give the whole structure some rigidity.All in all it's like $12 of material between "prototyping" and the final product, so I think I did pretty well for myself. What do you guys think?>inb4 "Clean your shower Anon!"Fuck you
>>2283163this would have costed $20 and would have done a better job, been faster and not look like a crack house repair
>>2283190>this would have costed $20 and would have done a better job, been faster This cost me $12, did not take enough time for me to regret it, and will be easier to remove when I move out (cut & peel in less than five minutes).So I think I did fine.>and not look like a crack house repairOh no, all of my friends and family I don't have will think poorly of me because my shower looks slightly worse, whatever shall I dooooooo!

This one's a classic
>>2288316>comes with mini bikesold
>>2288313This would actually be really nice if it was in the bathroom instead of the kitchen.
>>2288313My great grandmother reused to get plumbing for almost her whole life. She was from Czechoslovakia and was just used too having an out house around back. When she finally did, they installed the toilet in the kitchen right next to her giant coal stove, that she regularly used for cooking. And she was overwhelmingly happy, like, didn't even cross her mind to have a separate room, but super happy with having a toilet. She had to be in her 80s at that point, and this would have been in maybe 1995.
>>2288697My great-grandmother was similar. She did have a toilet, but that was only for guests. She used the outhouse until she died in her 90s.
>>2288316damn I have a 98 with lowish miles I was gonna try to get rid of for 2k, guess i should ask for more
>>2288302>take your best swing!
>>2271581They could have solved this in a number of ways
>>2288313>brew one in the coffee pot while you brew one in the toilet.
>>2288313The oven in the window is always what gets me on this one.
>>2288301this is actually very good work, the only thing that's not great is that the plumber used press fittings, if he'd used sweat fittings it would be 10/10 work.
>>2289706do sweat fittings really do bad over time? do the o-rings go to shit?
>>2289037What's the condition of the car? General location (rainfall or snow)?
>>2277466i can smell this picture
>>2283199checkedi like the cut of your jib, anon
>>2288308i miss vent windows and under dash vents that will blow straight up my shorts
>>2289780>do sweat fittings really do bad over time? do the o-rings go to shit?sweat fittings will last basically forever.the o-rings in press fittings will degrade over time.
>>2271581Does anyone know how unsafe this is? How does this even happen? Let's say, hypothetically, this was your house... how would you feel?
>>2290000>Let's say, hypothetically, this was your house... how would you feel?How would I feel if I had a boiler in my house? Fine I guess? Also checked
>>2290000>Let's say, hypothetically, this was your house... how would you feel?If I lived there and my kitchen sink wasn't pissing out scalding hot water two seconds after turning the lefthand knob, I'd be screaming for a refund.
>>2289308wonder how many hands have been pancaked between those two fucking battering rams
>>2290000Missed opportunity that the pressure relief valve doesn't go to the sink
>>2272650a modern masterpiece
>>2272650The more I look at it, the more I have questions.
>>2289638This looks like someone with absolutely no tools or diy ability. But it’s done right on the first shelf and there are ugly looking diy reinforcement pieces for the left side shelves so idk.
>>2278322Get a lawyer and don't leave just because she says so. There are rules to this game that she has to abide and it can get messy real quick
>>2283163>>2283199Based as fuck keep doing your thing
>>2289967sry I meant press fittings with o-rings ofc. well that sucks.
>>2290000>that single walled venting touching the microwaveIt;s gonna eventually melt the microwave, on the bight side your kitchen will never be the coldest room int he house
>>2288261For when you want Just yaw, pitch, and heave, but no roll.
>>2290000one I wouldn't buy that house. b. if I inherited it or something I'd move that fucker 2' to the left where it should be and put counter space next to the stove.
>>2290715yeah no, the pipe is hot and will melt the microwave but it does fucking dick to heat the room.
>>2277444It’s still not really a problem because you can solve that with insulation and wood and just make a box on that entire section of wall and cover it up like siding
>>2283352Extensions tell me you have a problem
>>2293295I see. I guess when you have that kind of mass things don’t bounce off as good. I guess that’s why I can’t shake my depression away
>>2293249>2’There’s maybe a foot there and possibly a couple of inches.
>>2290072Probably none, they would be explosion if they hittid like that
>>2287235Sharp bends reduce pressure
Shag carpet shower anyone??
>>2294803that's pebbled cement render you dunce.
>>2281064Literally in my town. Bradenton, FL. Strange.
>>2290000How did this even come to be? Did they install the new water heater before removing the old one from the corner?
>>2290000i've seen boilers in the kitchen but bong boilers are a lot less ugly.
>>2294828There's a difference between combination/system boilers and unvented hot water cylinders m8
>>2290000It's fine but I wouldn't rent that. I'd change it if I owned it
>>2283363Atleast put a plastic bottle with holes on it
>>2273670This is a blue board.
>>2274287>The walls look like an ex-commie land so they own that shit, they're not some 1st world land of the free rentcucks lmao>they own that shit>commies>owning anything
>>2283363This is nice. I like to pop the shower head off of mine, let the water flow onto me like water from a hose.
>>2295830ex-commieCommies build tons of housing, where people lived in basically for free. They did pay rent, but it was really only to cover costs like repairs/maintenance. After the iron curtain fell, everyone was given the option to buy the place they were living in for a ridiculously low price and most people did.That's why ex-communist countries have such high home ownership rates. They've only been falling recently, as the new generation is now having to find housing under capitalism, where it's no longer used as a place to live, but as an investment
https://www.etuovi.com/kohde/h23949/kuvatJust leaving it here.
>>2296060>basically for freeHe does it for free you say?
>>2296060To add to that, commies have no tradition of kicking their kids out of the house the moment they turn 18, making them look for their own place to live and inflate the market in the process. Most live with their parents and either end up inheriting their place, or only move out once they can actually afford it without wasting money on rentcucking in the meanwhile.
>>2290000why are american water heaters so industrial looking? also plastered with warnings and what not>pic relatedan ordinary water heater which we use in norway
>>2296453They usually go in a closet or the basement of your house with all your other industrialooking things like pipes, heating ducts, and wires.This is in the abomination thread because it's crazy to put it in your kitchen
>>2296453Because american homes, even cityfaggot hovels (aka apartments) are largeWe have rooms and spaces to shove things we don't want to look at, so why waste resources making them look nice
>>2296453Why wouldn't they be? You aren't using your mechanical room as a living space, are you?
>>2296521>why waste resources making them look niceWhy waste resources making a big space just to shove all the ugly shit in in the first place. A nice water heater is a lot cheaper than the extra space for the ugly one in the basement.
>>2296653Basements are wasted space anyway. Most places that have them just do it because of the frost level. Who cares what a big tank in a 4 foot crawlspace looks like? Or out in the garage? Or in a utility closet? Do I give a shit what my furnace looks like? Its not like we put it in the kitchen like a peasant. Watch, you buy a matching set of water heater, washer, dryer, stove, refrigerator, dishwater, bathtub, toilet, bidet, and sink because you have them all crammed into one room?
>>2290481Doing this now, legal people are telling me she committed human trafficking in our relationship because she destroyed all my ID so I couldn't work or leave(I'm australian living in the US) it's been a wild ride, ditched schoolie idea and getting money together to buy another house now, except in my name instead of a bitch saying it can't be in my nameI never posted this picture in the original thread but this is the part of the bed where I broke my finger or thumb, I can't remember which
>>2296453i'll take the industrial look over the gigantic suppository look. no need for a sleek form when this shit gets put in a closet. only reason to make a useful item look nice is when there's no other choice but to have it exposed, like cast iron heaters. >>2296806i remember being around 14-15, helping my dad build a shed and him yelling at me 'you can teach a woman how to flat nail'. wtf, i thought aussies were based
>>2296848The entire bed was made without measurements and half of it was made with a broken bone, I also didn't grow up with my family so I never had a dad to teach me these skills, I just go "welp fuck it, ain't gonna build itself"It's lasted me the 6 months I think since I built it pretty comfortably, it doesn't need to be pretty, it werks
>>2288316This is awesome. I had one of pic related back in the 80s and it was a great little truck (it's a VW rabbit with a factory bed for you zoomers, 80% of the utility of a truck and 35mpg). They don't make them anymore, so somebody took upon himself to do what car companies won't. Too bad it's finished so poorly.
>>2296453>also plastered with warnings and what noteverything in america is plastered with warnings. from the cups at mcdonalds to the dashboard visor of your car.
>>2296882to be fair, mcdonalds coffee did melt a woman's whole vagina off after they had been told repeatedly not to make their coffee so hot.the warning on the cup is part of a PR spin to make the victim seem stupid in retrospect, and to shame any possible future litigation.
>>2296653Because space isn't expensive in America.
>>2296874This is really the car I want, modern compact trucks are too large for my needs.
>>2296874oh man, i wish i could have bought a brat when they were cheap, it seems anymore anyone selling one wants an arm and a ball for a rust bucket
>>2296671>"why waste resources making water heater look nice?">goes and builds a whole basement just to deal with the frost>"I have a lot of otherwise wasted space to hide it out of sight, and american house must be big anyways!"American logic everyone
>>2296959>basements are just to deal with frostKek, no
>>2296971It's not me who said that
>>2296980parroting a retard only makes you sound stupid
>>2294828yeah its common to have on hidden in wall cabinet or sometimes thicker higher output ones in full depth full height cabinetsthey are balanced so they pull air for combustion from outside thus can be fitted in enclosed space
>>2296981Who pissed in your coffee, anon? Or are you just angry someone called out your fellow countryman for doing dumb things but you know it's all true and can't think of how to refute it?
>>2273670oh shit, is he ok?
https://www.etuovi.com/kohde/h23949Anon at Ylilauta found this gem on sale at a finnish real estate site. At first everything seems to be ok but the longer you stare at the pictures the worse it gets.
>>2297305is it a converted fire watch tower or something?
>>2277145>the cat knows what you've done
>>2296453>plastered with warnings and what not>Why is a potentially dangerous object in the most litigious country on earth covered in warnings?Gee I wonder.
>>2297305It's not bad from afar but when you get up close you understand it's the final form of the GNU/house
>>2296971Is this not fact? I was speaking with my colleague in Canada and he mentioned almost all houses where he is has a basement because you have to dig below the frost line for a foundation. When you have to dig 8 feet to do that then why not go ahead and put in a basement?
>>2296345>https://www.etuovi.com/kohde/h23949/kuvatThats pretty comfy ngl
I feel bad for him... :(
>>2288308Pretty cool air system when your car's AC is dead.
>>2297506A giant anvil fell on this poor slav
>>2297309No. The story behind it is not yet revealed. The current theory is that the rooftop balcony is used to spot and snipe incoming construction inspectors. In a way it is admirable that he finished the house in a true DIY spirit.
>>2296060>After the iron curtain fell, everyone was given the option to buy the place they were living in for a ridiculously low priceso communism actually works by failing.
>>2298008What? No!For the people already living in commie apartments nothing changed, because the money they were previously paying as "rent", they still paid, just into a pooled accound for the building that was used to do repairs and such (before it would have been a shared account for the whole neighborhood).What did change was young people getting fucked over. After the fall, no one was building cheap housing anymore, so they had to keep living with their parents or go into massive debt to buy housing that was built by private corporations for profit.
>>2296060>>2296363>>2298114>They've only been falling recently, as the new generation is now having to find housing under capitalism, where it's no longer used as a place to live, but as an investment>Country collapses because it chose a failed and made up system>Somehow now blame capitalism for the effects of this collapse.People choosing Communism and suffering from it's inevitable collapse is just. You sometimes need to let someone touch fire and get burned for them to learn anything.
>>2298147No one is suffering from the collapse of communism. The people who chose communism did fine during it amd are still doing fine (due to the pretty socialist policy of letting them buy the apartments they lived in for low prices). The ones who are suffering are the ones that came of age during capitalism. And they are suffering in the same way as people of the same age in the west. Rising housing prices, unemployent, poverty.But sure, the situation was so much worse 50 years ago when everyone had aa place to live amd a job.
>>2298149>No one is suffering from the collapse of communism. >The people who chose communism did fine during it amd are still doing fine>t. pic related
>>2298157>25>born in 1997>7 years after the fall of communism>not mention probably an americanYeah. This is the definitely guy that chose communism in eastern europe.He is an example of young people in the west suffering from capitalism, in a similar way that people his age are in the east. Granted, he is a retard, and Marx and Lenin are turning in their graves every time he calls himself a communist.The people I was talking about are the eastern european boomers (and silent generation even more so. They are the ones who elected communist governments after WW2 and perpetuated them after that.
>>2298164'Elected'Yeah just like we elected Biden or Bush
>>2298189Where is the Kraken anon?!I was promised the Kraken that would be definitive proof that turns the vote around!
>>2298213Kraken? Proof? Turning Around the Vote?Excuse me comrade, but what is this anti-marxist pseudo-science? These things did not and could not happened according to the Historical Dialects of 2020. Biden won, anon. Any accusations of "fraud" is counterfactual to history. Anon, I think you have had a bit too much to think, do not be counter-revolutionist and go against the party. The party knows best! Now enjoy your well deserved OGPU-funded vacation.
>>2298213>>2298244Regardless of if there was fraud or not, elections are run by the states and the states should be held accountable, not the feds. Each states population should vote their reps out of office if they believe they committed fraud. Or pass new laws, like they are doing... I don't see the problem.
>>2298244Where is the Kraken anon?
>>2298291the vote doesn't matter for shit, the politicians do whatever they want, look at seattle, the tunnel was voted down more than once as well as at least one of the big stadiums but they get pushed through anyway. the politicians don't represent the will of the people
>>2297305the chandelier got me
>>2298299That's because the wallet of the people isn't as open as the donors are.
>>2298299>>2298309Yeah exactly, if the politicians are listening to lobbyists over their constituents, vote them out retard, but it doesn't happen overnight. You're not an instant gratification addicted zoomer, right?
>>2298244>I am a dumb niggerYes, yes you are
>>2298244Scary times we live in, when they have to put disclaimers to help ease through their lie.>fact checkers and people familiar with this line of thinking agree
>>2298334> You're not an instant gratification addicted zoomer, right?nope, i just have zero faith in the system.why vote for one of 2 evils?
