Who needs architects and contractors to build a home addition when you have a saw, a hammer and some nails. The people of Appalachia in the mid-1970s didn’t worry about building permits when they needed more room; they just got out the tool chest. This home belonged to the couple in the previous picture. They added a front porch to the original log-cabin, then later decided to enclose it to create more storage space. Note the difference in construction, and how the porch enclosure is literally strapped to the side of the house with some 2x8s. Note how the home has only one window.
