  1. Algernon | 4:03 am |

    We’ll build where ever we like.

  2. Algernon | 4:04 am |

    We don’t really build houses just these pictures on frames

  3. Big Fat Cat | 4:17 am |

    so those bicycle racks will be the garage

  4. Salome | 4:24 am |

    Excuse me, Mr Construction Man, could I please use your inconvenience?

  5. DrLex | 4:29 am |

    It is nice that the squatters notify us of their presence.

  6. Droll not Troll | 4:39 am |

    …. and just down the road we’re building an inconvenience store.

  7. DrLex | 4:39 am |

    We don’t build houses for people to live in, we only build them to annoy you.

  8. jjhitt | 4:49 am |

    Housing starts are up. So are housing shocks, startles and surprises.

  9. jjhitt | 5:01 am |

    They just don’t make inconveniences like they used to.

  10. Droll not Troll | 5:02 am |

    Oh, you want doors? That will cost extra.

  11. Ageless | 5:08 am |

    Sorry, we don’t like it either.

  12. Ben | 5:34 am |

    I don’t know about houses, but that’s certainly how road construction works around here: no improvement, just inconvenience.

  13. Droll not Troll | 6:12 am |

    If this house is rockin’, you can’t say we didn’t warn you.

  14. A Non-Y Mouse | 6:26 am |

    Some people go into a profession for the challenge. We’re just a bit different.

  15. Sparky | 6:27 am |

    Don’t it always seem to go
    That you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone
    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

  16. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:38 am |

    I don’t understand but I can feel it

  17. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:44 am |

    Sorry, but as an Engrish person I prefer the incontinence. Cheers!

  18. Nonsuch Ned | 7:48 am |

    If you lived here, you’d be annoyed by now

  19. Classic Steve | 7:58 am |

    The company’s name means “For the Evulz.”

  20. Lora | 8:52 am |

    I understand that you’re inconvenient . You’re welcome!

  21. Lora | 8:59 am |

    @Droll not Troll – Inconvenience Stores: where it’s always crowded, the line-ups are ridiculously long and move like molasses, the staff are never around when you need them, and the clerks would rather put you on hold instead of whoever just phoned them when you’re ready to pay. Better known as Wal-Mart. 😛

  22. Seventy2rd o clock | 10:01 am |

    It’s called ”House on Inconvenient Hill”

  23. Biff the Understudy | 11:00 am |

    They may be in it for the inconvenience, but I’m in it for the money.

  24. Biff the Understudy | 11:01 am |

    @Lora: a true inconvenience store would have all the products superglued to the ceiling so you have to climb the teetering shelves and pry them loose. Only to have a lighting fixture fall on you.

  25. Biff the Understudy | 11:04 am |

    “We’ll leave the lights off for you.”

    (In fact, we won’t even connect up the breaker box.)

  26. Biff the Understudy | 11:09 am |

    “Listen, and please understand. That contractor is out there. It can’t be bargained with, it can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are inconvenienced!”

  27. Biff the Understudy | 11:12 am |

    And to the left of the sign: what I like to refer to as the “Construction Dalek”. The don’t exterminate, they merely inconvenience.

    (OK I’ll stop now.)

  28. Lollerskate | 11:29 am |

    And you thought collectors were the only ones with that job requirement…

  29. Seventy2rd o clock | 12:37 pm |

    I think you’re hidden behind the picture

  30. Marum | 1:05 pm |

    Strange. I’m in it for the money.

  31. Marum | 1:09 pm |

    @BtU Solly mate. I posted before I read.

  32. Biff the Understudy | 1:29 pm |

    @Marum: Happens to the best of us :-)

  33. Frank Burns | 1:36 pm |

    “So when will it be done?” “Two weeks.”

  34. jjhitt | 1:48 pm |

    If this was a Roadrunner cartoon, a freight train would be coming though that canvas right about now.

  35. Marum | 1:48 pm |

    We build our houses out of cards,
    We find it all the quicker,
    And when it all comes tumbling down,
    We giggle laugh and snigger.

  36. 田剛 | 8:23 pm |

    Nah, they’re just in it for the rude and unreasonable.

  37. iLock | 6:48 am |

    Go away. It’s not your house…yet.

  38. Peter Chan | 9:40 am |

    A nation of pure, unmitigated inconvenience, I sure understand.

  39. EffEff | 11:45 pm |

    Actual house located in micro-universe inside sign, accessible only to Road Runner travelling more than 88 MPH.

  40. deco2gogo | 7:59 am |

    I’m really trying, and even though they said thanks, I still don’t think I quite understand.

  41. Jan | 3:46 pm |

    Masochism Construction Co. We’ll be done in a year or two.

  42. zerima | 10:00 pm |

    what are all those shoe racks for? Do they remove shoes before entering even if the house is not built yet? Sooo inconvenient

  43. sirpaulfan | 1:10 am |

    I’ve suspected this of road construction crews for years.
