I’m guessing this was not what the architect had in mind…

    You can see the residue from previous tape applications. They should at least just get a couple of short Velcro straps that they can reuse and then clean up the sticky mess.

    I’m guessing the architect didn’t think it through far enough. That seems to be the case more often than not. There is less and less effort put into the plans and specs lately. Almost every project becomes a design build project and a fight to cover changes due to horrible plans/specs.

    Of ALL the money spent in this area they couldn’t afford a nicer garbage can other than a painted 55 gallon drum!!!

    In defense of the architects: many times the architects will advise their clients to allow for future programmatic changes but they will resist. So the architect may have had to do what the client asked of them. Of course we can’t see from the photos what the back story is in this case.

      Hi Rich –

      That’s for sure! I often see situations (like this one) where I am absolutely positive that the current situation is not what the architect had in mind. In many states, the energy codes require a vestibule but the people with the duct tape are often unaware of the applicable code requirements.

      – Lori
