Hey everyone! The guy who cannot remodel a house if he is in charge is excited by bundles of sticks!

Labeling parts is cool, but for how long have we been assembling furniture based on a diagram?

You've drunk that Meet Kevin guy's Kool-aid.

His videos that hit Youtube's main page have him being sued or losing $1M. How authoritative is he?

Also, I've done rough framing. The nailing isn't rocket surgery but cutting the pieces is. I worked for a roofing truss company (this century) that used lasers to light up where the individual pieces should go on the assembly table. Before they added the gang-nail gusset plates.

Meet Kevin is not a suicide cult leader. Your reference failed.

He calls out people richer than him and they sue him. Big deal.

He tried and failed, but you are a better man for sitting on your laurels?

Meanwhile, Matt Risinger is six months into his remodel and just demolished half of the house. Explain that!

For those of us not just randomly posting solely for the sake of hitting 15,000 messages, the one car garage is appealing more and more.

Imagine if I built an inspection pit!

I got exhausted just reading about installing pits. Popular opinion is that jacks and stands are better.

Every house built since Bucky Fuller put the Hexa-Pent Dome engineering plans in the public domain via Popular Science magazine has been sub-optimal.

If you lived in an hemisphere with an oculus your life would be most optimal. I know, I've done it. Today I have to settle for a beveled box with 14" skylights.

Before 15K I will show the Cyberhouse design. Promise. (25 messages to go)

If Kevin were underwater, I doubt he would say so.

I do not think that most people would volunteer that information, especially if they want people to watch their videos and purchase their courses, but he also has a video about reporting a loss to the IRS, but buying six houses that year. He has another video about his ten income sources.

I doubt that he would hide extravagant spending. Millions of people spend to show off. Working as a realtor, posting videos on YouTube, selling courses, YouTube ad revenue, and everything else. He has a Model S and a bunch of big monitors in his office, but most of the times that he shows us projects he tells us that he spent X, but it raised the home value by Y.

I question everything about the homebuilding industry. It boggles my mind why most homes are a bespoke work rather than built from a large number of existing plans. Then, why are we still cutting lumber and nailing it together? There's got to be a better way were either the frame is printed on site, or the materials are all precisely measured and cut at a factory, and then Ikea assembled on site.

Then all windows are custom rather than standard sized, probably because all framing is custom rather than prefabed.

Roofing is a dangerous and backbreaking job that repeats the same thing over and over again. Isn't that why we invent machines?

All of my comments are coming from a profound ignorance of homebuilding, but why are building structures among the only things we haven't streamlined?

That's a huge improvement for the reasons given above. Furniture assembly by diagram is a more recent development from furniture construction by craftsman. It puts very useful and reasonably attractive furniture into the hands of ordinary consumers rather than it being only for those wealthy people that can afford to hire a craftsman.

Most of those prefabricated sheds look better than what I have already seen in some Brazilian slums.

They are nicer than where I lived in Afghanistan.
