Wow!! It didn't take 6 minutes to realize that thing was a miserable failure, lord have mercy...as the owner I would have stopped the process and had the builder remove it from my property. Let the lawyers have fun with the rest lol

Or build it where you actually want it.


When you're stupid you don't think of the obvious.

Nowhere in any text under the video does it say this is an owner built home. It says that the "built by a new builder that has never build one this size with metal siding". I would not call him a "builder".

Did you notice they used rafter straps on the bottom beams that gave way in the middle? Rafter straps are used only to hold 1 rafter together for delivery and getting them on the roof area singly. That's all. Never designed to have up and down pressure put on them. Mobil Homes use a steel frame for a reason. IMO Calling him stupid is being kind. And never taking the extra weight off the top is pathetic.

There is a Amish video right after, dad and son video delivering a unit and setting it up, not as pain full. You might fall sleep being its done well. Impressed watching the young guy carried bundles of shingles up the ladder and across the roof starting the finishing. The dad and son work smooth together. The mover should have watched that video first, not sure it would help.
