So December 4th was Inspection Day. The inspector spent about 15 to 20 walking around. I showed him all the boxes, though only the insides of a few since not all of them are done. He was just checking the trench work, wire and conduit. He was happ...

I am Nate Meadows and I am a retired Staff Sergeant from the United States Army. I am a Wounded Soldier returned home from Iraq who has poured himself into making beautiful things instead of destroying them. I was wounded by a Fuel Bomb, a specific type of IED, only I was protected from its flames. My injuries are primarily internal and therefore perplexing to many people. I look normal however I have a severe head injury that impairs my balance, messes with the nerves in my hands and feet, and gives me terrible headaches that can take me out for days at a time. Life is still very good however! I have a beautiful wife and two healthy sons.
I was adopted by many great people when I was in the hospital, who have helped me get a shop up and going. I am an artist and a visionary. I can look a empty room, a blank piece of paper or a plan blank of wood and see a thousand possibilities. I love working with my hands to make what my minds eye develops. I struggle with several disabilities but I have vowed to never, God willing, let them keep me from my goals and dreams.
I take pictures of my work and progress to show all of you kind people that your generosity was not wasted on me. I want you all to know and see how much you have touched my life and helped me move forward from my darkest of days.
-- "With a little bit of faith, and some imagination, you can build anything!" Nate

Our roof has been leaking for the last few seasons at the spot were the old fireplace pipe comes out, despite several attempts to fix it. There was a spot of good weather so thought I would brave the heights and climb up there and use the new spra...
With all the small wire laid, I could finally run the last bit of large 2/0 wire from the Generac 200Amp Panel, into the inside House 100Amp Panel. It also needed to be routed under the concrete walkway. I spoiled it out and into the Generac Panel...
Before I start on the project, I wanted to share this. So I finally go a photo of one of the Widows that have been invading my trenches. She not very big, just a yearling, barely out of her spots and into her black coat. Anyway, I f...
