Makes no difference. The building can still move if it had to. The wireing can be released with a screw driver.

Well bless your little pea pickin' heart, wildflower !

That's just about the homiest looking little home I've seen in a long time.  Y'all have done a great job.  It looks like a regular house.


I know you've been working on it real hard.  I watched on the live "cabin cam" when you started it and now.... it's even got a front porch.  ;D 8)

That looks like a fine place for Tom (and others) to sit and contemplate the world. A great family effort resulting in a very nice addition to your home. smiley_thumbsup
This thread really stirred the ol memory bank. My dad was a shop teacher and spent his summers building and renovating houses, with me goferin'. I had forgotten how to lay out trusses but now it comes back.
Apparently, he would no longer be allowed to do it except for outbuildings. I understand the code now calls for engineered trusses from a licenced manufacturer. Houses he built over 40 years ago have not gone anywhere.
