Those floor joists are visible from the underside and they have been painted white. But notice the subfloor has not been painted. What's going on here?
The picture above is from a short distance. Let's zoom in for a closer look below.

Nashville Home Inspector - Silly HVAC Ductwork Installations - 01/07/11 09:52 PM
Silly HVAC Ductwork Installations by Richard Acree http://habitecinspections.com Sometimes the Do-It-Yourselfers create great comic relief for Nashville Home Inspectors. HVAC ductwork installation is one common source. Look at the pictures below. What's wrong? HINT: Just do it? Works on the track, not in a house.
ANSWER: I don't really have an answer for this, except maybe "Just don't do it?!" But for those who cannot see it clearly, yes, that is a NIKE shoe box used to complete a line of HVAC ductwork. The box and a tube of caulk! So let's look at another silly picture of DIY (0 comments)
Active Radon Mitigation Monitor - What's Wrong With This Picture? - 01/03/11 06:59 PM
January is National Radon Action Month. Radon mitigation systems can be either passive or active. Both systems provide a path of least resistance outside of the home or building. The difference is that passive systems provide a passive path only and active systems include a blower that works continuously to pull air (and radon) from under the building and exhaust it at the roof line. Active systems also should have a monitor to verify proper operation. Look at the picture below. What's wrong? HINT: Pulling air from beneath the building will create a pressure differential that can be monitored.
