Close call This garage door almost took my head off at an inspection. Only one wheel kept it from completely falling.

Does it have four or six cylinders? This is an automotive fuse wired into the internal wiring for a furnace. Can anyone identify if the furnace is a Ford or a Chevy?

Exotic This is a leopard-print attic access panel. The room even had cover plates to match.

Illegal connection This is a photo of an illegal bypass at an electrical service that had the meter removed for non payment. The homeowner figured out a way to bypass the system and not pay his delinquent bill or a reconnect charge.
