A movie about things dear to our hearts, love, liberty, sawing, and building.



EDIT:  looks like the full movie is gone from youtube, but I edited the link so the trailer shows up.

I watched it right after you posted it but thought about it till now, sad but so true no body said life was going to be fair. It was a good show but sadens me to think about how our country has went down hill with all the BS. When we started out [my wife and myself ] permits were unheard of except the marriage one  ;D. Here in our county you need a permit to get a permit pure stupid as far as Iam concerned !

Investigate "international building code or uniform construction code" and their origins.  That's where this nonsense comes from.

My sister called me this afternoon and told me that I HAD to watch this movie on Netflix. I just did and... wow... a great show! She had told me that the man reminded her of me...woodworker, sawmill, built my own house, etc. Anyway, it is worth everyone here taking the time to watch (And I'm afraid it's where our country is headed with loss of freedom.)

 you are supposed to buy your lumber from the big box stores to assure they make a profit. the building inspectors will tell you that pine is stronger than mill run oak. they must have not seen some of the houses that are over 100 years old and have withstood storms that would blow away the houses that are built today.
 i am lucky to live in an area that has no building codes. the only inspections are your electrical wiring and septic system has to be up to codes when you build. if you add on no one reinspects the wiring if you do it yourself and keep your mouth shut. it is all about money. money for the government for the permits and profit for the building suppliers also for the labor unions in some areas where union labor is required.

From the news story in my previous link.

This is a true Canadian story, a cautionary tale of the tremendous power of the state over the individual in an age of pervasive bureaucracy. It is, indeed, a profound parable of irretrievably lost independence and casually forgotten freedoms.

If you think the "irretrievably lost independence and casually forgotten freedoms" are only in the building codes, you should try commercial trucking and the US DOT. There they believe you need to fill out an employment application to drive your own truck. Plus you have to pay a fee to pay one of their endless fees.  >:(

Gary, we're just farm plated and our truck very rarely goes more than 10 miles in any one direction but if they ever stopped me I just as well hand them the keys and walk away.  Not saying it's a dangerous vehicle to have on the road and I guarantee I know it better than they ever will but if they ever wanted to pick something apart it'd cost me more than the truck itself is worth, worst part is I'd never be over weight so they'd have to start looking for something else  :-\.  Had a real close call this fall but luckily a neighbor got me flagged down just coming into town, 2 pickups on one side of the elevator and 2 on the other, '73 cabover Freightliner pulling a '79 Hobbs grain trailer, how far do you suppose they'd have to look?  :D

i heard of one dot inspector that said that he could find something to write up a trucker for even if it was a new truck. i have been lucky with getting by with some things i moved on the road. like moving house trailers without escorts or permits. some of us get by by being stupid and lucky.

A friend of mine was stopped by a DOT inspector and had to show his fire extinguisher and reflectors. The inspector said your fire extinguisher is not big enough. So my friend asked how big a fire extinguisher he needed and the inspector said "bigger than the one you have." So I guess that is the rule, you need a fire extinguisher that is bigger than the one you have.  ::)
