Well I’ve been posting some here and thought you might want to see my lastest project. Been pushing 2 years, but things are finally looking up.
Of course the 1st pic is my old shop after Katrina. She took no prisoners.
2nd pic is new shop. Built with the trees I lost (27) to the storm. Bought a Turner bandmill and so it’s somewhat of a Phoenix….

Will start to post more pics now, as I have finally figured it out…lol… I hope…

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for sharing, looks like a nice building and also cool that you can use the storm strewn trees. Good luck.

Wow Trash to workshop. What could be better. Maybe not having the trash to begin with.

A lot of tragic tales of Katrina, but we do survive and rebuild. I hope that you and yours survived okay. Please tell us how it goes. We will cheer you on every step of the way….

Wow… one of the things I love about Utah is we have very low suseptability (sp) to major natural disasters. This is apparent when you can insure a $500K home for $500 per year that is 4500 Square Feet. I feel for you and as I see earthquakes in California and Hurricanes in the gulf regions and ice storms elsewhere I have grown to appreciate my climate here with 4 seasons but very little extreme weather. Love the making lemonade from lemons. I guess the one advantage to being forced to rebuild after having done it once is you can do it better the second time.
