Everything can be replaced except you and your loved ones. Glad every one is okay.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Consider yourself lucky!

A new shop sounds sweet, but I would not want to go through what you just did.

And, good luck fighting with the insurance companies--sometimes they act like it's coming out of their own pockets.

Also glad to hear no one was hurt!!

It's "funny" (for lack of better word) how sometimes a disaster sometimes works in our favor. I live right outside of New Orleans, and thanks to Katrina, I got a brand new work shop. With the money my insurance company gave me, and my son and I did all the labor, I was able to build my new shop much better. Power to shop, without extension cord. Insulation everywhere. And also a free window unit from a neighboring business, to where I work. An appliance company was throwing out a brand new small window unit (still in box), because units below it, in boxes, got wet (also because of Katrina) and this unit slid off and got bent up just a little. They said they were throwing it out, so I asked if I could have it. 8 years later, it is just now starting to give me a little trouble, but still cools the shop.

But don't get me wrong, I never ever, want one of those storms to hit us, or ANYONE else. Not everyone was as lucky as I was, and my little luck, wasn't worth the pain and agony others went through.

John
Thankful it wasn’t worse. The tree could have nailed the house directly, or worse yet someone hurt. Glad you are all safe, and hope you get all the additions to your shop you want.

Hmm is the tree big enough to get some wood out of it?

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

No Steve no wood just paid to have it hauled off and it did get the house,here is a picture of patio there are French doors under that tree, electrical does not look bad but city says it has to be bought up to code. The other picture was the other side of house.
I was home alone in the shop in basement for once I was in the right place

Good to hear you're safe, and got away pretty lightly from what we've seen on TV!
A few years back a friend of ours was up early and making breakfast during a powerful gale. A 150' D.Fir in his neighbour's yard uprooted and came directly at him as he stood at the window. It deflected off a short stocky ornamental tree in his own yard, and demolished the top floor of his next door neighbour's house.
Pant changing moment...
