Uhhhh..... yeah.
Uh huh.
Right.
You aren't sincere enough to keep your own post from self destruction, and I can't imagine how anyone could even respond to this.
If you are serious, you could build a house by hiring a builder.
Or work for a builder for a few years and learn the interaction between the trades, all the procedures, building codes, and safety concerns.
Or build your own train wreck from library books.

Peace of Mind. One must always start with Peace of Mind.
And I'm only half joking. Instructions for my son's tricycle 30 some years ago started with the admonition that I must have Peace of Mind before beginning assembly. In that case I did Not have PoM by the time I completed the assembly, but the more I thought about it the more sense it made. Almost everything I've ever done in haste and sans PoM has led to various levels of disaster.

Find a REALLY big log, bigger than the house you want. Cut away everything that doesn't look like a house. Go inside. Cover it in concrete.

big nails. The house never burnt down but it has big critters. The critters are about 90 lbs apiece and eat everything. Here is a critter picture when they are not eating.

When I was kid, we built lots of things out of popsicle sticks.
That may be a good place to start. Be sure to spray with fire retardent when finished.

watch the pig who is building his from straw and improve on it a bit.
When the big bad wo.. er, critter, comes along and huffs and puffs and blows his house down you may want to consider lining your wooden house with a fireproof/wolf-snot proof skin.
A couple of layers of bricks, separated by an air cavity would make a decent fire/critter-proof lining

Looks like another troll contest to count replies pulled. I looked at the odd newsgroup and it contains only trolling messages.
If you want to continue making jokes, at least remove the extra newsgroup (as I did). That way your response won't count for his little contest.

A wooden house is not a suitable container for Xenon because it boils at 165.03K (-108.12C or -162.62F) and has a Van der Waals radius of only 216 pm.
I have read that Xenon should be stored in sealed glass or metal containers and that Xenon dissolves in most plastics and rubber, and that normal weather stripping and vapor barriers will not be sufficient to prevent leakage - and as you grow older, you will discover that leakage is increasingly a concern.
I suggest you clean up your act and live in a glass house.

If he had any stones, he wouldn't need to spend his time trolling Usenet.
