Thanks Charles! The recovery has gone really well. We’re less than 7 months out and just moved back into our rebuilt house.

I watched a youtube video of the April 9th tornado and all I can say is wow, that looked scary. Glad you made it out safe. Sounds like you have a decent permitting and building department working for you and not against you as well. To rebuild and be back home in only 7 months is great. That wouldn’t happen in my neck of the woods.

Welcome and I look forward to next years photos of the new shop :)

If it was the same video that I’m thinking of, that’s not too far from our house. Luckily neither my fiancee or I were home at the time. I was driving home and watching it the whole way. Got to the house about 10min or less after it got there.
