Pocket Ninja: I think the only reason the government cares at all is that he's apparently operating a day camp for kids. Which requires a license, which requires, oh, I don't know, that you meet the conditions of the license.Either that, or this has something to do with Barack Obama taking all our freedoms. Could be either one.
This About That: By "properly marked" does TFA mean the grade markings stamped on stacks of lumber by a lumber mill? If that is so, and it is why they are accusing him of being "not to code", then this, indeed, fairly outrageous. OTOH, there is no real telling from TFA.
cc_rider: If this guy wasn't running a commercial enterprise that requires all buildings to be up to code, I might be just as poutraged as subby's headline. Hopefully he can work things out with the state, and make some necessary upgrades.
cman: Oh, and also, who the hell names their kid "Eustace"?
JerkyMeat: We are not the greatest nation on earth, we are not free people. The long and the short of it is, we're farked.

The rough lumber I buy isn't marked. But it is separated into different racks by A+, A, and B price codes usually.
Happy Hours: you insensitive clod.
Quantum Apostrophe: Even when it's free, real estate sucks. But busybody government lackeys are ten times worse.
MaliFinn: From the Carolina Code Studies and Consulting report: "This is a photo of what appears to be a wooden boat in a tree. Notice the boat is accessed by a wooden ladder attached to the trees and indicates the boat is accessible to children."Seriously? It's a farking tree house. Tree houses are supposed to be accessible by children. These people have too much time on their hands.
poot_rootbeer: JerkyMeat: We are not the greatest nation on earth, we are not free people. The long and the short of it is, we're farked.Oh bew hew. People living in other countries are not the "greatest" either, and are no more "free" than us, yet many have a standard of living that puts the average American's to shame.If we're farked, then EVERYBODY is farked./I'm not saying whether that is or isn't the case.
Happy Hours: cman: Oh, and also, who the hell names their kid "Eustace"?That's my real name you insensitive clod.
Smeggy Smurf: Happy Hours: cman: Oh, and also, who the hell names their kid "Eustace"?That's my real name you insensitive clod.Stupid Fark, they make you look bad
pedrop357: Why not just make him post some signs at each entrance that the entire property and buildings are not up to code?
WhoopAssWayne: I'm here to answer any questions - this is my hometown/county - ask away.
JerkyMeat: Stop teaching that America is the Land of the free, home of the brave. It's nothing but bullshiat.We are not the greatest nation on earth, we are not free people. The long and the short of it is, we're farked.If you are rich, you may have an ok life, otherwise you are basically a slave.
cretinbob: WhoopAssWayne: I'm here to answer any questions - this is my hometown/county - ask away.Is his weed that good?
cretinbob: Anyway after a minute bit of Googling, it looks like this article , though posted to the Dail Fail today, is something that actually happened in October 2012.Here's a better article that even shows one of the buildings that is failing.
cretinbob: He did work things out with the state. They are making additions to the code so he shouldn't have to change anything. In reading the article from my previous post, there is a fine line between living primitive and being batshiat crazy, and this guy has fallen towards the batshiat crazy side.
cretinbob: The code inspectors are doing their job. They don't make the rules as they go along during the inspection. Since they saw that the existing codes really didn't fit what this guy was doing, they changed the codes so he would be in compliance. They didn't force him to be compliant. You'll get over it.
WhoopAssWayne: Imagine the worst homegrown you've ever had filtered through a soccer-moms shorts then shot-gunned by dick cheney.
