Some PEP badges allow for oddball points.  This was introduced in this thread.

When submitting something in the official Oddball badge, you get points based on the time it would take a professional to do the same task if they have a bit of luck.

When submitting something within a badge that allows oddball points (Homesteading, Metalworking, etc), they are based on the time it would take a talented newbie to do the same task.

When you did something that should be in a badge but there isn't a BB for it, post about it in that badge and maybe it will become a BB.  If that badge allows oddball points, you can submit it there, otherwise it has to go into Oddball badge.

Some examples:
You welded up a 20 foot unicorn - put it into the Metalworking Oddball thread
You made a candle - put it in the regular Oddball thread since it isn't a clear fit for an existing badge
You build a pump house - post it in Homesteading since it should be a BB there and/or put it in this thread for Homesteading Oddball

I had a nice sugar shack but it needed doors.  I wanted bypass barn doors but I couldn't find hardware for that locally.  So I had to get creative and make my own bypass barn door system.  I used normal barn door track and mounted two of them to the building.  Getting the outboard one beefy enough took a bit of work.  I then made the doors from 2x4s and 2x6s and the missus covered them with reclaimed pallet wood.  

The doors were a half lap joint in the corners which required a fair bit of chisel work.
