People amaze me this is how our ancestors lived and if man chooses to live this way so be it!!!! If a man wants to errect a shed from trees on his property I don't see a problem!!! And oooo a building inspector didn't approve it I'm sorry but I've been building homes for over 30 years and I've forgot more than half of these inspectors have ever learned reading there books!!! Leave the guy the hell alone this is still supposed to be a free country till all you wanna conttol everyone's life people get done with it
