the devil is in the details…

I noticed this staying at a hotel in Pensacola this past weekend.  The smoke alarm and fire sprinkler were mounted too close to the ceiling and the crown molding.  Either the “architect”, yes I used quotes because that title comes into a debate here, or the installer took some creative license in order to “fix” the problem.  The problem is that the  fix only draws more attention to the mistake that was made.  This makes you think about paying attention to what may be considered a minute detail, like the mounting height of smoke detectors, can make all the difference when all of the pieces come together.




  1. Wow. *cough*. Perfect example.
