Topic tags/keywords: humor trainwreck dangerous not square

I got a link from a friend, to a motorcycle forum. Apparently one of the posters’ landlord is building himself a shed in the backyard….one that is extremely cringeworthy, but at the same time, the saga and pictures of the build are hilarious to read. If you have a few minutes, stop by and take a look.

Surely this is a movie set for the remake of one of the Laurel and Hardy movies. Since the guy is his landlord I hope that he hasn’t done any work in his residence. Thanks for posting.

In between laughing fits, I’m wondering how the guy that posted that thread will feel if he didn’t say anything and someone gets hurt when that thing collapses.

Don’t know how the landlord is 1) going to even get a tiller through the door and 2) if he does get it inside, how he’s going to get it back out when it goes through the floor and a couple inches into the soggy mess of ground.

I figure once the floor rots out, he’ll just lay another layer down on the soggy mess that was the floor. And yeah, I was thinking the same thing as Charles….what else has this guy managed to rig up inside his house, that’s of the same level of construction as this shed…

This looks like something I might have done in the worst of my drinking days.

Oh, gosh. I’m dying from laughing so hard.

I’m reading through the thread and almost lost it entirely on the time-lapse movie he posted around post#100.

Fantastic! No other way to describe it. Looks like it was all done with hand tools?
