Name These Objects

Recommended Posts

During the inspection, I referred to them as the "stone-clad objects in the backyard." In the report, I referred to them as "boxes."

Do these articles have a formal name?

Do they deserve one?

If that porch was a bridge, I'd say they were Troll guard houses.

They would be more attractive with gnomes or bulldog figurines in them, ya think?

Stone clad wood boxes works for me.

How about "idiotic stone clad boxes"?

Too obvious. I prefer the understated.

Framed with PT 2x4s, sheathed in untreated plywood, sitting on grade. Backerboard on top of the plywood, stone slapped on the backerboard. No flashing, no details.

Leaking, rotting, silly.

If this was the 70's I would expect to find speaker wire inside!

But...talking of the 70's, whoever added those on top and around the existing deck had to be smoking something. I particularly like the slab "balanced" on top of the left post.

What to call them? Crap That Needs Removing?

They look like chairs for a couple of those jackel-headed men that the pharoahs used to guard their tombs.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

My guess is the designer maight have made them to contain some kind of lighting with a translucent panel of some kind in front?

I found a brick-clad chimbley column like these that was stuck onto the outside wall of a dwelling addition, inside was a faux-stone hearth-like thing, but the woodstove planned for it was never installed. Seemed domestic discord truncated the project and left the house unoccupied.

That would have been my guess as well. Odd...
