This was forwarded to me from an inspector in Ft. Wayne Indiana. He got it from an inspector in WISCONSIN naturally.
They just don't make 'em like they used to.

Thanks Alan.

You know, the day after Bill gates passes away, leaving me his fortune.....I am going to build a home, using every one of the clever things wew've seen here!

Things like:
- The infamous soap-bottle receptacle;
- The coffee-can lights;
- The garden hose conduit; and
- These improvised boxes.

I will then stand by, and time how long before something bad happens!
