    A free house? Yes – that is what we have been working on and we are getting
    close to being able to start building the free house on our homestead! We
    are excited! What could you do if you were given a free house with the
    stipulation that it be moved or torn down? Oh – and you have no money to
    hire people to do the work? That is our situation. We do what we can with
    what we have.

    It’s looking really good. Are building codes very strict where you are.
    Here in Ohio the building inspectors can be a major pain for a person
    doing it for themselves. Some counties are worse than others. When my
    neighbor was having their new house finally inspected the inspector came
    out and said, “Everything looks good. Fix these few minor things and call
    me back out tomorrow and you’ll be all set.” They did that and the next day
    a different inspector came out. The second inspector carried on like he was
    Barney Fife and told them that there were all kinds of problems.

    I have not done a direct price comparison but if you did decide to demo you
    can even reuse the screws. I decided to go this route versus buying or
    renting a compressor and nail gun. The screws are not ad fast as a nailer
    but its faster than an old fashioned hammer and nails.

    What made you decide not to take the guy up on his offer to move the house
    for you? I am glad to see the progress that your making. Can’t wait to see
    how you put it back together. Thanks for the video!

    What was the deciding factor for you guys to come and live in Oklahoma? Do
    you have roots here?

    Watching this video is a reminder of why I used framing screws while we are
    building our home. Its so much easier to back them out then pry a bunch of
    8 and 10 d nails.Happy belated Thanksgiving.

    Looking good, Are you going to move the floor in sections? What kind of
    foundation are you all going to use? Can you salvage parts of it?
    Cinderblock? and it looks like the house has a basement, is that in the
    plans for the new house? Think about a basement or cellar at least for
    storms. I’ve seen round metal tanks or cinderblocks used for a cellar.
    Oklahoma is in tornado alley so it might give ya piece of mind to have a
    cellar come May-April-June.

  11. Aw, this was an extremely good post. Spending some time and actual effort to make a really good article…
    but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

  12. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you ought to publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but
    usually people don’t speak about these subjects. To the next!
    Many thanks!!
