Our place on the creek - BEFORE!

Cabin at Hay Baling Time.  This is the before view from the road.  Most of the foliage and fencing were destroyed under high waters but the tall iron fence posts kept huge floating logs from taking the cabin along with them during the flood!
WILD Bird Cage that I made from scrap items that were piled up under the cabin.  I used chicken wire and bamboo attached to an old refigerator rack and framed it with wood.  The back is open so birds can fly in and out (even perch on the little swing) to feed.
Our new deck!  The view to the creek makes it hard to believe something so peaceful could have been so devastating.  Check out that rain chain made out of re-purposed springs from an old trampoline! With the deck placed several feet off the ground, we were able to have a larger outdoor space at the top of the stairs instead of a small landing.

As always, you folks are supportive and such an inspiration!  I wasn't real sure how something that is so exciting for us would be received...just another remodeling project to some, perhaps?  However, LOOK OUT because you've encouraged us to keep you posted!  We thought we'd share some before photos as well as ongoing progress on the repairs and include some "side-projects" which utilize our salvaged stuff.  THANK YOU for allowing me to be a part of the Junkmarket world!
