BananaTude tip of the day - 01/20/12 11:33 AM
BananaTude tip of the day I was in Walmart yesterday and went to get some bananas. When I got there all I could find were overripe or rotten bananas. I guess Walmart's BananaTude is that if they only put the old bananas out then that is what people will buy. At first I was a little upset that they didn't have anything worth buying. Then I looked down. Under the shelf are sevaral boxes of bananas. I pulled them out and opened them up. The second box I opened had green bananas. I took out what I needed and bought them.

When flashing goes wrong. - 01/19/12 02:58 PM
When flashing goes wrong. It is always a bad sign when there is a tarp on a roof. Tarps are meant to temporarily keep water off of things. They don't stand up to the hot Phoenix sun. When I saw this tarp I just had to see what was under it.
Here is what I found when I uncovered it.
This flashing must have been a patch just like the tarp was a temporary patch. The vertical flashing should be behind the stucco to catch any moisture that penetrates through. The horizontal flashing should be under the roof tiles. (2 comments)
Wind proof yard signs on a budget. - 01/13/12 03:54 PM
Wind proof yard signs on a budget. I was talking to a client about her remodel project that is under construction. She said that people were asking who designed it. I asked her if I could put a sign in front. She said yes. I contacted Ashley Pugmire of Visual Designer LLC. She designed a new logo for me. The hardest group of people to design for are other designers. She did a wonderful job. I wanted to showcase both my design/drafting services and my inspection services. She was able to do that with the incorporation of the drafting T-square and (2 comments)
