We’re sure many of you experienced tradesmen will back us up when we say that you don’t get to spend long in this industry without running into some jobs that leave you seriously scratching your heads.
Whether they come from homeowners who can’t see the flaws in their plans for a big home renovation project or public officials who just haven’t thought things through at all, most tradesmen have been tasked with jobs that are doomed to fail from the outset.
When that happens, those tradesmen typically fall into one of two camps:
- Those who do their best to explain to their customers why a project isn’t going to work and offer suggestions on how to fix those less-than-perfect designs
- Those who, apparently, do no such thing, and simply carry out their jobs to the letter, regardless as to how silly the final outcome may be
Today, we pay tribute to the latter – to those blundering builders responsible for some absolutely disastrous projects, and the clearly oblivious folk who signed off on them!
From terribly-designed toilets to garages that can only be used by The Jetsons, here’s our round-up of some of the world’s biggest building fails.
Who needs privacy anyway, right?
The less said about this the better.
Home security at its very best
“How am I ever going to get in here?”

We couldn’t agree more!
I also like to live dangerously

We can’t help but think something went wrong here
Go home stairs, you’re drunk
That last beer was a step too far…
Thank goodness that bridge is here
Money well spent, obviously.
Nothing to see here
A room with a view
All in all your just another brick in the window.
Anyone seen my shovel?
I only put it down for a second.
Apparently, somebody really hates cyclists
The less said about this one the better.
Looks fine to me…
That wheelchair symbol is a warning, not an instruction.
That’s not how this works…
That’s not how any of this works!
When the plumber & electrician fall out
Apparently, they’re still not speaking.

Guests have to take a broom in with them.
Somebody did this on purpose
Wonder if that somebody still has a job?
In the name of love?
…and pass me a dictionary?
