He's clueless, that much is obvious, and yes, there's an entertainment factor, but the guy is digging his own grave (financial, at a minimum) and it can be avoided with a few easy words, so why hold back? No one was born a builder, just like no one was born a motorcycle rider. We all learn from someone, and we'd all be worse off without help from others. If he ignores the advice, so be it, but at least it was offered. We wouldn't intentionally watch a clueless rider ride into the ditch, would we?
    I would think that telling him what he is doing right would be a lot easier...and quicker

    very true. now is the time to help him have the confidence to use larger and more powerful tools.
    nail gun would be my first suggestion. make sure to let him know the pros always disable that pesky safety interlock on the front.

    table saw would be a good second choice unless you can convince him that a chainsaw will be a real time saver...

    Holy hell! I'm going to change my route so I can drive by more frequently and see how he's doing...can you see it from the road? Does that not make you wonder about the safety of the house you LIVE IN? Offer to build it for him for free rent!

    Monday Morning; the 'crew' has arrived on-site, 'construction' is under way!
    I'll get pics of the updated 'build' later today

    You've got to do some form of time lapse photography. that would be epic.

    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    This thread definitely needs a live webcam. Is tarping the roof? Or is he actually going to throw some wait on those obviously load bearing walls.
