    Oh my. Looks worse than the "tree forts" my buddies and I used to build as kids. Except ours were about 6-10 feet in the air and usually had at leaset a couple cardboard boxes on the materials list.

    Wow. That's probably the worst I have seen.

    Last summer a carpenter friend helped me build a deck and a detached garage. I am relatively handy but had no idea how many details and nuances were involved. I thank god my buddy was there to make sure it got done right.
    He's thrown a kettle over a pub, what have you done?

    It's a shame considering he used all new materials. I know that in a lot of developing areas where there are shanty towns, construction can be really shoddy. There's no excuse for this though. As a side note, the sheathing probably doubled the strength of the structure- enough so that the guy was able to put the roofing material on.

    First, until you've experienced the discomfort of your knee being pinched between tarmac and faring, you're not really a rider.


    Second, until you can drive two toeing nails at the same time, you're not really a carpenter.

    This structure is doomed, I am actually a carpenter and will say that the material he used has almost 0 strength when on the flat the strength of dimensional lumber is on edge and he should be using at the absolute least for a shed 2x6 rafters and I would reccomend 2x8

    Hahahahaaaaaaaa!!! That is classic. Not only has he screwed up but he has done it on so many levels there should be an award for it.

    Yep, NAILED IT!

    I find it rather unfortunate. The amount of effort this man put into building it wrong blows my mind. I think to build it properly would have been 10x easier
