Not too long ago the Board of Supervisors made some rulings controlling building construction in the county. There had been building restrictions in the towns for a good many years. But as time went on and people moved in, homes became scarcer. Many wanted to build homes out in the woods or in the backcountry doing the work themselves with material they could find. The cost of building a conventional homestead in town had got beyond what many could afford. The rules for buildings and materials and inspections just flatly stopped them. Many could not pay rent and eat at the same time even with assistance. Some of the restrictions were pretty far out, or so it was said: rules like no electricity in a cabin out the hills unless the foundation was right, no used lumber, a lot of stuff like that.
