When we asked to hear your worst DIY disasters, we expected to get a few bad painting jobs, maybe a story or two about how someone installed the wrong downlights.

But Brad gave us the biggest laugh when he told us about the dodgy home job he did.

“I thought it’d be a good idea to save a couple of dollars and put in the air conditioning at our nice, new house,” Brad told Erin and Soda.

“I was doing the bit in the roof and stepped back and actually slipped off the truss and yeah, put a big great, big hole in the roof right above our main bedroom which is still staring at us every time we lay down.”

So the 200cm former air conditioning technician put a great, big hole in the roof.

That’s right, he’s a former air conditioning technician!

We thought the hole needed fixing, so we were happy to tell Brad that we’d be sending $5,000 his way to fix it up.
