It's only illegal if you get caught.:laughing:

So what's the real danger here other than it not being code compliant?

Flip it over and it would make a great fart fan :thumbup:
Yea, that way the whole building can enjoy the burritos you had for lunch, not just the sorry bastard that is next to walk into the room.:laughing:

I have seen this SO OFTEN.

I just pulled two out of what used to be a server room. Based on the fans, they'd been up there since the early 90s.

If you like your ceiling fan you can keep your ceiling fan. The motor probably isn't designed to run in the horizontal position.

I have two questions. Why do you think that is a wrong install ...and why do you have such a close relationship with the fire marshall about such an insignificant issue?
You have to realize Pete isn't from Kentucky. In the South this probably would be okay, in fact, you might even have your in-laws impressed over your clever idea!:thumbsup:

Why do you think it is right?

Secondly, not that I feel this install is an imminent hazard, the relationship I have with the fire marshal is simple... we work together to try and mitigate code violations and hazards of most any nature. A lot of communities don't have the interaction between the building and fire departments. I think that is sad.
