Been done somewhere? Did I hear someone mention my name?
We had a glass-enclosed architects' office, one that sat on the edge of an indoor pool. After our multiple RFI's were ignored, we mounted the thermostat to the glass with double-stick tape, and the t-stat wire just hanging in the air.
The install failed to be noticed through several inspections; only after 'final,' when the man's wife came to visit, was it noticed.
Yup, the 'award-winning architect' had so much glass that there wasn't a good place to mount the thermostat. Oops
. Well, we eventually made a bracket for a door frame, and fished the wire through it.
