Started out about 6 am, got up, dressed, went to the shop & fired the wood stove. Came in, shaved, looked back out to see If wife had let Chief out & noticed a "flickering" behind the shop! Checked it, called the Fire Dept even though there was noway they could save the shop:
Apparently, I dropped a hot coal when dumping the ash pan. It's insured & will be replaced, won't replace everything, but start with the basics & work from there. I'll probably have the basic building replaced & finish it myself, should keep me busy this winter! The tools I'll replace as needed.
I built the 14 x 20' shop around 35-40 years ago & moved it here 30+ years ago.
