Attic mishap

Recommended Posts

So, today I was helping Keith take care of some mold in his attic. Everything was going swimmingly, when all of a sudden we here this cracking sound and I end up falling through the ceiling and dangling by one arm that I managed to lodge in a truss.

 

Picture this. I"m dangling by an arm w/ my feet a good 4 feet off the ground(thankfully there was a bed under me to land on when I finally get down. there's sheetrock fragments and insulation scattered over a 20' radius. Keith is looking down at me and trying to decide whether to FOLLOW me down that [language filter] rabbit hole or come down the sane way)I would have jumped if I were him), and Angie runs in the room and looks all aghast with a face like "dear christ.....what the hell did you boys do to my ceiling"

 

So, instead of cleaning mold like we hand intended(and made 2 trips to the hardwarestore for already) we ended up spending the entire day patching a 4x8 foot hole in the ceiling, which entailed running to Lowes once and then to the hardware store YET AGAIN for sheetrock, mud, and seam tape Good times were had by all, although I scraped the hell out of my arm in the fall... so if anybody needs any home improvements done, I highyl recommend Keith and I.. we are both experienced home renovation specialists.

Sounds more like you guys should go into home demolition. Lucky you didn't break your arm or worse man.

 

Here's a tip for the next time you go up there, walk on the trusses dude!!!!!!!!!!

What are your hourly rates? I've seen what kind of work you two can do. Top drawer stuff. :)

The sad part was..... there was no drinking involved(Even "I" don't start drinking at 10am)

But it's okay to drink at 10am... it's after noon over on the east coast which makes it completely acceptable!

 

I'll keep you two in mind when we decide to put a skylight in. You're both good at making holes in the ceiling! (laugh) Seriously, glad neither one of you didn't get hurt... and that included after Angie walked into the room and found out what you did to her house! (wife)
