    I recently took a different route to my local supply yard, and came across this job. I almost crashed my truck in disbelief that anybody could build something this bad and unsafe. Why WHy WHY!! would anybody having to start from scratch go through all this work, just to screw it up and build a nightmare?? I just don't get it. This job isn't new either. It's obvious the township building inspector or officials don't care either.

    This residence is located in Franklin Township, NJ (Central NJ) :cry:

    I think you have a running bond in there somewhere.

    I don't think that town has a building inspector. Check out the deck in the last pic.

    its a shame it looks like a Mercedes and a chrystler 300 in the drive way so they at least appear to have money....I'll bet it was a homeowner installed job...I don't think a pro could screw a job up that bad...

    Well don't judge it just yet still needs the copping and then it will look as professional and straight as any other job.

    I love how the seams all line up in the wall, makes it look more stable.

    I'm sure that base consists of a good solid 3" of compacted grass.

    Wait, that isn't the right material for a base?
