A very tough job.

Just putting the finishing touches on a silhouette for a new house, and auxiliary structure - a 600 sq. ft. pool house. This silhouette was the toughest one in recent memory. Structures and ice plant, trees and rocks on the roof. Every type of obstacle you can imagine. but the end result was another fine job by Riviera Rich Contractors.

Look at this wasted stairway and landing.

Some people are just dense or cheap, or maybe totally unrealistic because of their economic situation- either way they don't make good decisions. Here is another photograph of this rotted and totally unsafe stair landing. One thing about the Zenbuilder you can count on ... he doesn't lie, he just tells it like it is. If I put my full weight on that landing I'd be landing alright... on the ground below! Zenbuilder out.

Terrible jobs, illegal stairs

It's been over a month since my last posting. My work load went from sporadic to beyond full time in that period, but alas- I am back! Today ridiculous construction photo depicts the most unsafe stairway I have ever seen. Not only is it worn-out and rotted, it's a miss-match of materials. The homeowner wanted to try to fix it as is. needless to say wasn't interested as a licensed contractor of even touching such a monstrosity!
