- Leaning heavy wood posts against a wall in climates where there is yearly
freezing & thawing of the ground makes the posts push harder & harder on the
wall & will wreck the building eventually.

> There is also a difference in dynamic load (the four adult men talking)
and a static load (your mill, gunsafe, piano, etc..). My safe is only 600
lbs, but it makes the floor (new house) sag enough the closet doors creak
when you walk in the room. To further illustrate - my grandmother has a
cinderblock building. It's had several fence posts leaning against the wall
for 40 years. And they eventually broke the wall and pushed the top in
several inches. The mortar probably never was good, but still - had the
fenceposts not done it in - you could probably have hit it with a sledge
hammer and only knocked a hole in a block.
