    Have you considered giving him a roll of duct tape? That is what's missing from the project.

    I've seen better construction with bamboo and twine.

    Hey - don't laugh - I framed houses for a few years, years ago; then spec-built a bunch; and then sold real estate and did some small land development projects ... and back in the late eighties there were a couple newly arrived East Indian (so called) 'builders' who didn't have a clue what they were doing, and they built houses that looked much like that there shed. For example, a 10 x 10' bedroom in one of their houses would have been four to five inches out of square ...

    You can imagine the fun their finishers had, trying to get shit to line up. But ... the building department passed them (I guess they were, more or less, still 'to code' - just way out of whack) ... and ... people actually bought them.

    I felt really bad, that people who hadn't a clue bought houses like that from realtors who likely hadn't a clue; and that there weren't any regulations as to who could or could not, pick up a phone and start building spec homes as a general contractor.

    And is it any wonder, then, that so many multi-family buildings developed leaky-condo syndromes?

    This should be very entertaining.


    Sadly, he's not broken any building codes as yet. As long as he does not pour concrete, he can build whatever he wants without any worries.

    Actually, that fence, is that the border to the property? That might be a code violation. Gotta be 4' in some places.

    Don't know if that muni have a maximum dimension for that shed (looks big) but looks like its on farmland so maybe restrictions on size is different.

    That's funny! I do admire his "roll up the sleeves and can do" attitude, ...don't rain on his spring wood project!

    This kind of DIY reminds me of Shervin and his ZX10.

    He's missing the most important material known to mankind, duct tape.
