Being a homeowner comes with many challenges. There is always something to be done around the house. When things happen, we usually call in a handyman or some other construction service to handle the situation.

Unfortunately, not all construction jobs come out quite as anticipated, and when this happens, they just might end up on social media.

Naturally, there is usually some mocking to go along. But this particular Instagram account, greaseball1987, has a fun way of pretending that the bad construction job was his own. He pretends to “justify” why it’s so bad, and it has a lot of people entertained.

Below, are some examples of just how wrong some construction jobs can go:

1. Comfort Height

The idea of an elevated toilet is fine in theory, but this execution is not so fine.

2. Water Sealed

If this homeowner is hoping for no leaks they will just go on hoping.

3. Half a Toilet

I guess half a toilet is better than no toilet, right?

4. Too Close for Comfort

Using either the shower or the toilet is going to be a challenge in this space.

8. Drains

Draining your laundry is going to be interesting with this installation.

9. Running Wires

Why use actual bricks when you can just use brick shards and caulk to fill a hole?

10. Nails Exposed

This is not what you want to see in a newly-installed railing.
