Plumbing Condos

We began staying at a condo instead of a motel on our annual beach vacation – it costs only a little more and the condos, each being someone’s vacation home, are very nice. Walking through the parking deck to the elevator, I looked up and marvelled at the work of art installed on the ceiling:


I still can’t figure out if they kept changing the goals, piped themselves into a corner, or executed the design flawlessly.  It doesn’t look like the pipes could move enough to assemble some of those joints.

How would you do it?

    I remember thinking that it looked plumb wacky. This wasn’t the first time that you looked at someone’s plumbing, scratched your head and wondered ‘what were they thinking’?

    That’s a tight fix. I like what Linda said about looking wacky. It like a “pipe maze.”
    I hope I’m not duplicating comments, but for some reason this comment is showing me it’s posted.

      It is indeed a tight fix. I like how Linda slipped in the “plumb” pun…
