Thinking outside of the box?

Recommended Posts

My Wife's Grandfather built his house out of packing crates from the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co of Akron, Ohio just after WWII. The basement has a forest of 2" pipes to hold up all the joints in the 2X6 joists.

When my Father-in-Law came back from Japan with a very sick wife and two babies (My wife being one of them), Grandpa turned the donkey shed into a two room house that grew over the years to include indoor plumbing and 3 bedrooms. I believe both house were built without benefit of a level or plum bob, but both are still standing.
