So Subby, instead of making fun of him, why don't you volunteer to help him with it?

Sometimes things are just a lost cause...and it's better to watch them go up in flames than to try and help. The only way anyone could have helped this guy was to bring a match and some gasoline.

Guy with serious tool chops living next to a mechanically inept Korean with mediocre English skills?

This is a TV Guide description of a King of the Hill episode, isn't it.

Somebody needs to consult with Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson.

The guy's not lazy, that's for sure. It'd take a lot more work to build it his way than the right way.

oh, boy, BCSB's server is going to get a farking the likes of which it has never seen before.  I'm glad I read the thread yesterday (38 pages as of 9:50 AM EST, and yes, I read the whole thing.)  I first heard about this from a guitar forum, and thought it was about a rehearsal shed for a black metal band.  The breadth of variety in the subject matter people reported where they heard about this Shed Of Doomwas amazing.  A good deal of the pages from about 28 or so on were people signing up just to report their point of entry's field of interest.  There are some GREAT photoshops, btw, and makes me wonder if some of the TFers might not already be spreading their magics around in there.

Anybody who gets their nose out of joint about 'why did he not help or tell the guy how to do it right' has never met people like this.  you could tell him until you were blue in the face, they'll just keep going.

I've done construction and finish carpentry.  I read this and laughed harder than I have in years.  I really ought to try to save the pictures before the server explodes like a russian meteor.  The first time lapsed video is magnificent.

For one, the ground it's being built is mushy moist marshland - your feet sink with every step. Which is always ideal for a good foundation - or complete lack thereof.

When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castletool shed on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castletool shed in all of England.

Not a great shed, but a good solid place to bury all the dead hookers.

The tool shed is clearly a cover story. It's at temple being built according to alien geometries.

Some of those pics look a bit like those "impossible structure" things. Were the plans drawn up by Cthulhu by any chance?

Swanson would build a house 3x better than code and would be insulted that anybody would not have enough pride to do better than  the bare minimum of code.

You're supposed to enunciate the second t in tracts.  No letter in tracts is wasted.  All are there for a reason.  All are pulling their own weight like strong ox.

You know...  I wonder if the structure would be too flexible to fail.  Like, instead of the wind or a fallen leaf or something else of that nature finding a weak spot and causing a chain reaction, the whole structure just yields a little bit, finding a new equilibrium as the load is spread to the rest of the joints.

Maybe.

I'm thinking the main problem is going to be the OSB that is holding it together falling apart after a good rain or two.

funny I was thinking it's the untreated 2x4 sill plates just resting on the ground that might cause issues.

In reality, structures need to be strong and flexible. I would not go up on that roof if I were him, the extra weight might just make it flex all the way to the ground!

Also, this guy could probably buy and install a professionally built prefab shed for twice the cost of what he's spending (and destroying) in lumber. What's the point?
