Renovation nightmares - all pics welcome!

Ok, I like threads with lots of pics, so why not post up the various nightmares you've found in the houses you're currently renovating?

I'll start off with a few of mine... 1929 seaside semi - corners cut in construction followed by nearly 80 years of elderly women getting Jo Builder in to do bits and bobs...

Our freeform lintel (see above) - pebbles from the beach and leftover pipes as "reinforcement" bars.... and yes, that one stops there.
