Subject: How NOT to build anything!
 

I visit other boards and this link, well it speaks for it's self. There are building codes and this clearly shows why they are need but, if only the "builder" would know how to read. It is like a train wreck in slow motion. Lots of money was wasted and it is so bad that you can't help but look.
Plans? who needs plans? and what is a saw? Lets just nail screws in and if a component does not fit, just lap it over another one, who cares?


Enjoy!

Link to thread, it is worth skimming through all the pages just to see the pics!

Oh wow. When they started editing the pictures, I had to put my coffee down to save my screen.

It seems that most car/bike forums I visit have got a link to that thread!

Certainly some 'interesting' construction techniques involved.

Of all the things that have been done on that thread, I think I like this video the best.
Warning, there are 4 letter words in it, I did not make it but to me, it is pretty darn funny.

The music makes the video!  I like how the boards for the roof "trusses" are laid flat and not on edge.  Not sure where this is, but  I'd love to see the first snow load on this thing.

Maybe we should start guessing what the guy's real job is.

It should get a weather workout this winter, I think it is north of you and in the great country of Ca. No reflection of the fine citizens up north, you will find someone like this any place in the world, this one just was caught on film!!! :D
