Tromler Construction - A Sacramento General Contractor: I See That You Replaced The Closet Shelf Yourself!

I See That You Replaced The Closet Shelf Yourself!

I See That You

Replaced The Closet Shelf Yourself!



There are times when it is very clear that a job was done by someone less than professional. They may have been hired to do the work but it was not done in a professional manner.

I came across this closet shelf in an apartment, it was completed by a paid worker. Maybe he didn't realize that these boards come in a longer size. Know what you are getting before you pay to have the work done.


Now that's what I call a creative solution to a shelf that isn't quite long enough!

Good morning Tom,

I thought you were peeking at the one I just installed; should have paid the professional for the amount of time to make sure I got it level! Oh and my board goes all the way across!

Make yourself a great day.

I can see all the stored items crashing to the floor as we speak!

It wasn't that they didn't know that it came in longer sizes, it's that the piece would not fit in their car

Tom - oh yes, it shows.  Not a difficult job but now it looks ridiculous.

Measure twice, cut once.

Or measure right and don't cut.

So, which is it, anyway?

Good morning Tom.  Well it looks like Jay Markanich stole my thunder.  I'm sure you haven't heard that term before have you?
