I've been absent from the site for a good while and a lot has happened since. Most notable as I've mentioned in another thread was an EF3 tornado that hit 1 1/2 years ago. Nearly all of our neighbors had significant damage, many lost their homes completely. Some are pretty much back to normal, some left, never to return and happily there are a lot of new homes going up. I also posted that I got dinged by the table saw yesterday (got an appointment tomorrow with a specialist to see how that will go). So, I am probably going to have some free time on my hands (no pun intended), and thought I'd post how our house repairs are going post-tornado. Might take awhile doing this one handed, but it will keep me occupied while the fingers heal. I'll post before and after photos. Show what we've done so far & what's still on the to-do-list. Here's one for now, before and after the storm. We were very fortunate, we didn't have to leave our home. More later.
