    OMG that is simply the worst build I have ever seen. That thing will move all over the place. No foundation, no tie downs, bracing is a joke. I dont even think that roof would hold up to a gentle rain.

    I'm bummed. I was hoping to see it down on the ground by the end of 24 pages. Now I actually have to keep checking it out hourly until it collapses...

    I'm still curious how well those shingles a secured given his precision and skill at placing nails . At most i give that thing 3-4 years before it surrenders to gravity . Maybe less if he gets heavy wet snow. . On the positive side..... He could probably "season" wood fairly well in that " shed " as it looks like it would flow air freely .

    While I'm thinking about it ...... What are the advantages of building a structure on upgraded ground ( not even mowed ) ,and using untreated wood ? Is it to insure that the structure will just shrink into the ground while feeding the local insects ?
    He should sell plans . He could call it the " you can screw up this much and still call it a shed " company .
    He could also add .." Plans for a biodegradable 2 story garage are in the works ! "

    I bet that only took 8 or 10, 30 whackers to build.
