THE FOLLOWING PAGES ARE EXAMPLES OF ONLY A SMALL PORTION OF THE RENOVATION AND CONSTRUCTION I'VE DONE. THE INVENTION OF THE DIGITAL CAMERA HAS HELPED ME DOCUMENT MY LABORS, SO MOST PHOTOS ARE WORK FROM THE LAST 5 YEARS (Eventually, I hope to scan and add snap-shots from ten to fifteen or more years ago renovating my old 5,500 sq. ft. church studio and skidding logs on the Michigan property which would eventually be used as "Cordwood" construction material for the Colorado house).
