Unbelievable Home Renovation Fails That Really Happened

Unbelievable Home Renovation Fails That Really Happened

30.  May Need to Fly

These folks are going to have to go back to the future if they want to get into this garage. Who needs wheels? Anyone have a flying car they can borrow circa 2099?

29. Best Laid Plans…

Someone forgot to tell the contractor they nixed the upstairs plans. Well, if they ever want to plan a Harry Potter themed party, they’ve got the set piece already.

28. Hmm…Something Isn’t Quite Wrong

Image: www. definition.org

We’re guessing they wanted the ability to watch TV in the other room while popping a squat? That’s the only explanation we can really come up with.

27. Blueprint Mix-Up

It seems someone’s getting fired. Did some blueprints stick together to create this odd monstrosity? Yeesh.

26. Well, that’s “Tree-rific”

Image: www. definition.org

Talk about some serious dedication to Mother Nature. Maybe this family is a big fan of Arbor Day? They may want to think about what’s going to happen to the yard when this tree is 20-feet tall.

25. Two Rooms for One!

In theory, you can light two rooms with one light with this design. Sadly, when they burn out that’s it. No replacing those bulbs.

24. There Must Be an Easier Way?

We’re not sure why they didn’t just build the door ABOVE the concrete flooring? This seems just to be a whole lot of extra work we have to say.

23. Dimensions Are Important

Image: www. definition.org

Yeah, we’re thinking whoever designed this room is probably out of a job. Obviously, the fan doesn’t have enough room to spin, so we’re not sure WHY they turned it on in the first place?

22. Backing Out Could Be Deadly

Image: www. definition.org

Don’t park in this driveway if you know what’s good for you. We imagine backing out during winter would be quite the pain and possibly an insurance nightmare. Although, this driveway would be great for sledding!

21. Watch Your Head

Image: www. definition.org

No tall people allowed in this home! It seems the angle of these stairs was severely misjudged.

20. Don’t Lift Your Leg

Image: www. definition.org

We thought you had to maintain a certain distance when parking next to a fire hydrant? Well, at least the dog has the perfect personal pee post. Honestly, they could have started building five feet to the left of the thing.

19. Anyone Got a Zip Line?

Image: www. definition.org

The only way you’re getting into that garage is with a zip line. What a crazy design this is. How did they expect to get the car into that garage? A pulley system?

18. Nothing Like a Dinner and a Poo!

Image: www. definition.org

How convenient is this? You can host a dinner party and no one has to miss any of the conversations. They can simply use the restroom while sampling the shrimp puffs!

17. Who Cut This?

Image: www. definition.org

Did the tile professional have a bad case of vertigo? This is one wonky and unnecessary angle if you ask us. Yikes. Hope they got a discount.

16. Measurement Fail

Image: www. definition.org

Did the door really have to get cut around that fixture? Couldn’t it have been a smaller door? Humor us here, please.

15. Hope You Don’t Own a Car?

Image: www. definition.org

While this house would be perfect for someone with a motorcycle, if you have a car you’re gonna be out of luck. We’re guessing the landowner wanted to utilize every bit of space…seems like a tight fit.

14. Better Install Hand Rails

Image: www. definition.org

Getting up and down this driveway is going to be like besting Mount Everest. We hope you have a good emergency brake when parking in front of this house. Yikes!

13. Sometimes Less Is More

Image: www. definition.org

While this isn’t technically a renovation fail per say, it’s pretty cool nonetheless. Who wouldn’t want to keep their car hidden underground?

12. Time to Learn How to Fly

Image: www. definition.org

You’ll need a really strong trampoline to get your car into that garage. What was the designer thinking? Let’s just bounce into the house after a long day! No thank you!


11. This May Not Be Up to Code

Image: www. definition.org

This looks like an accident waiting to happen on so many levels. One size does not fit all cars! We suggest learning to parallel park on the street.

10. Missed the Mark

Image: Pinterest

So close, but no dice! We’re guessing that wall is going to take quite a beating every time that door opens.

9.  A Little Off in Alignment

Image: Pinterest

God forbid the windows actually fit in their frames. This is one of the worst botched jobs we’ve ever seen. We’re guessing that room gets quite a draft from time to time.

8. Who Needs Leg Room?

Image: Service Central

Hopefully, you’ve got your flexibility in check because the only way you’re sitting on this toilet is by extreme straddle. Like seriously, who thought this was going to work?

7. Who Installed This?

Image: Pinterest

It seems this missed the mark by quite a bit. Hope you don’t mind a flood every time you wash your face.

6. Who Needs Drawers That Open?

Image: BuzzBuzzHome

This is what happens when you don’t properly measure before installation. We’re guessing these drawers will be decoration from this point forward.

5. About That Add-On Room, You Wanted…

Image: Contractors Lancaster

We’re all about the tiny house movement, but this is just ridiculous. None of those support beams look sturdy at all. We’ll find a Motel 6, mmk?

4. This Will End Well

Image: Service Central

Yeah, there’s nothing wrong with this at all. Why don’t you just flip that faucet on? Hope you’ve got a good pair of rubber-soled boots.

3. Let’s Race!

We’re not sure why the installers felt this was a good idea. I guess if you’re super close to someone you could see who drops a wicked cable the fastest. Personally, we like our privacy.

2. One of These Things is NOT Like the Other…

Image: Pinterest

Did someone piss off the tile man? This looks like an act of REVENGE!  We hope the homeowner isn’t OCD.

1. Hope You Don’t Mind

Image: Home Array

Whoever designed this really wants you to get up close and personal with some strangers. We think this may be too close for comfort.
