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.

I was told I'd see someone building a tool shed.

That wasn't building, and that pile of lumber isn't a shed.

I especially enjoyed the "Painting" where he started than got distracted by unloading the van, only to continue by stirring the paint with an 8' 2x4 and then "paint" the wall by randomly moving the roller for a wile, then filling in the gaps.

A++ would laugh again.

I'm glad he ran those 2x4s flat for the roof.  That's a great way to save space.  And the untreated "foundation" with OSB.  I do see why he didn't put felt under the asphalt shingles - the extra weight would have been a problem.  Maybe the whole thing is an experiment in slow failure - between moisture, mold, rot, gravity, I foresee a beautifully slow decline worthy of another time lapse film.

WelldeadLink: manimal2878: Noobian Noob: when you flushed the toilet everthing would come out of the bathtub faucet. :-(

That shouldn't even be physically possible.  I have done some amateur plumbing and I don't see how you could even make that happen without trying.

I have it. You start with being told everything is supposed to be vented in the bathroom that you're creating. When you install the tub faucets/shower, you include a connection to a vent pipe. The bathtub faucet works, because it's lower than the vent pipe. Shower works...although you might be losing some water into the vent.

With a low-flow pressurized toilet... flush when the drain is obstructed, and it flows through the vent pipes to the bathtub. This is made easier if you don't know how big a vent pipe is supposed to be, so you've vented with 1/2 inch or smaller pipe.


See... this is what irritates me about that one tax preparation commercial.   The one with the guy under the sink, and the dude is all like "Now you are a plumber, last week you were doing my taxes!"  Plumbing is dang near a science.  It has to be at least 800 times more difficult than tax preparation.

Maybe

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?


The pride of building it himself. I admire his ambition. A first project for most people is something smaller. Like a coffee table.

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.

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.
