So…the front fell off?

My first thought though was “Bluesmobile” at the end of the film….

Looks to me like the front forks were still on the wheel. With the steering bars separate on the ground.

I think the steering column broke in two.

That’s not how that’s supposed to work. That’s not how ANY building is supposed to work.

I’m really curious what the story behind this is.

Where I found it the query was “three story shed?”

There was no cross support. From diagonals, or unbroken sheeting. The floor we're at, which distorted the most, only had 3 verticals on the narrow end. Minimal fill-in around the verticals. The 2 floors above at least have some fill-in around the windows. Wind from the right caused the failure, after they sheeted over the long sides.

I think you could get away with this design, but you'd have to hide some serious steel framing in the narrow walls. To stiffen it up.

note: it's a 4-storey. Appears to be a car parked underneath.

Yeah, and the part below the “folded” floor seems to be well hidden from wind. I see way too much dependence on OSB without using it in a way that it could support stuff.

Having just finished my own (single-story) shed, that’s just brutal construction by some idiot who had no idea what they were doing. Obviously.

Very obviously, and very amusingly. I wonder if they had a permit? Because if they did, they’re going to have to use new materials. And if they didn’t, they’re going to be fined, have to buy a new permit, AND use all new materials.

This seems like an example of stupidity being clearly painful. I hope it works as a lesson, but I’m an idealist…
