Its a sad fact that gov regulations are meant to protect the general public or the uninformed from those careless or unscrupuless who prey on others or endanger themselves and others  with trucks that should'nt be on the road or products that are at best substandard instead inspectors try to justify their existance by being rigid or for a lack of better words stupid about things and fees are imposed to try to offset the cost of these tin gods on the municipalaties.

This is the position I am in on my land in the U.P.  I had a plan, and now due to the county inspector, I don't.

Thankfully and I might say very thankfully I have no building restrictions.  The only thing that the county inspector will get (if he finds it) is the measurement of the roof line so he can raise my taxes.

At least 12-15 entire homes have been built with my sawn and ungraded framing lumber.

It is available dvd on overstock.  Better yet, it looks like it is available on amazon prime streaming, which we get.  I started it and it looks like it is there for real.  We'll watch it later this week or this weekend.  Thanks!

Not sure if it is going to upset me or not, don't need to think about anything like DOT (see above threads) in leisure time.

no building permits here either. If you have 3 acres or more no sewer inspections or electrical inspections as long as you are outside the city limits. Which I am of course.

Funny thing.  After I read this tread and watched the trailer, the next time I turned on Netflix (on my smart TV), it suggested I watch Still Mine...  is this an episode from the Twilight Zone...  The TV knows what I'm thinking  ;)

I live in a 150 year old farm house.  It's built with rough lumber, cedar logs on 3 foot centers for floor joists, field stone foundation.  It has withstood 150 years of hurricanes and heavy snow loads on the roof.  The roof line is still as straight as the day it was built.  The walls are perfectly plume.  Funny how they builders didn't have building codes back then yet here the house still stands.

OK, my review:

I read the story as linked above and read the comments before I saw the movie.  I could see where they made the movie much less stressful(?) than the real story to make it more entertaining/enjoyable.  Overall, a very good, moving, emotional movie.  Since I was/am dealing with my building department, I can sure feel for him - it made me get all angry again :D  Well worth the time to watch.

The law is always right...We are not smart enough to built a house.  :D The law does trust us to built a airplane and to carry a loaded gun around, so do that.

I found it on Amazon Prime video and we watched it this past week.  This is one of those very good movies.  It's good in its own right independent of the bureaucratic aggravation theme, which would be funny if it weren't so true.
