Hey guys, so I have now been here in Afghanistan for about 3 months. I was tasked (because of my construction history and because someone showed my boss my page here on LJ) with the position of Brigade R&U (repair and upgrade). so they gave me very little tools, and really no place to work, so this is what we did. we started with a container and a screened porch or sorts. we closed in the porch, added an 8×8 and an 12×12 addition so we would have a place to secure tools and projects.
As part of our duties we are charged with remodeling/fixing of living quarters and office areas; building furniture; and new construction projects.
the last pic is the view from my shop.
