We do all make mistakes from time to time--or perhaps just miscalculations of large proportion. I just hope if I ever decide to build a little cabin in southern Colorado, I'm smart enough to use some concrete.
Mostly this post is for my sister... she'll understand why. As an architect and city planner, this cabin rankled. It ticked me off just because it marred my view, being exceptionally ugly and poorly built. My guess was it would last a few years, but to have the wind push it over in less than a year really boosted my admiration of the ferocity of southern Colorado winds.
