This Wordless Wednesday photo came from Kim Loux of Hellyer Lewis.  Some days I just want to throw in the towel.  Who could possibly think this is a good idea??

    Jeez. At that point just take the door out and brick up the opening, instead of this mickey mouse solution. Of course, that might require paperwork and a visit from the AHJ. And this is probably a required means of egress, so the answer would be a very firm, “NO!”

  2. James Slemmons says:

    Back away slowly. Exit building the way you came. Never return.

  3. Rick Halloran says:

    At least you will be cool as you die of smoke inhalation.(provided the electrical remains on)

    Also noted not the first time the owner tinkered with the door. Note the shiny new dead bolt on the door equipped with panic hardware.

  5. Vince Black says:

    Feels a lot like Chicagoland.

  6. Curtis Meskus says:

    at least they put in what look like a proper electrical circuit

    They should have picked to install the unit in a window instead. My guess is that they rather cut cost and cut into a door they hardly use rather than put it in a window that requires more labor cost and possibly a purchase of a new window and blocks some scenic view, if any.

  8. Jeff Baker says:

    I’m day 5 in this industry, but is it possible this door exits to a demo’d exterior stairwell and is on the 10th floor.
    I doubt it but just a thought. be nice, remember I’m new.

  9. Jared says:

    At least they had the decency to install a”no exit” sign.

  10. Daniel Davis says:

    At least if you put an AC unit in make sure it’s sealed up around it.
