      I'm glad to hear things are picking up for you, Kevin!
      Although not nearly at this scale, I've also experienced tribulations with my shop project during late 2015/early 2016. I think that, as much as these disasters are a terrible setback to our goals, sometimes these troubles can be an opportunity to step up a little higher and improve where we otherwise weren't able to. That's what happened with me, and now a year later I'm almost glad that I was granted a vital soul-searching opportunity. Not sure if you can relate to this or not, but...
      If you need any tool or machine to use, let me know! I probably either have one I can give you or know someone with an idle one. I know I'm a bit of a drive from you, but I go to Ottawa often enough to arrange for something positive.
      Looking forward to more updates, Kevin.

            Lots going on but it feels like no progress.

            It's considered a 'large loss' so Intact is bringing in secondary evaluations.

            I've grown impatient and have started planning on a new building on the other side of the property. Same size but four plumb walls.

            I'm slowly emptying out the place and photographing/inventorying everything that leaves the building. I've been asked to stop doing this by the insurance company.

            My reply...

            I have to inventory everything in there, so that I can correct the evaluators. Some things are in my way. There are unsafe situations. By the way, I need my forklift replaced, in order to access the stuff that no one will go near, due to safety reasons, as it hasn't been inventoried yet.

            Cheque is in the mail for the forklift replacement. I have to leave the heavy metal inside for scrap metal value.

            The heavy metal is going to be stored outside once I have the forklift. Whatever disappears during the night, I don't care about.

                A bit of an update...

                Things are moving slowly with the insurance company. No pun intended, but they're swamped. I work in the restoration end of things and I've never seen anything like this with the flooding.

                Enbridge and I have come to a compromise on the disconnect/reconnect. It's a high pressure line supplying my property from the other side of the road. I'm now going to have a small station on the property, rather than disconnect on the other side of the road. $5g vs $10g.

                I've been sorting/emptying the building. This is against the insurance company's wishes, but I have to clean it to inventory it. I have to make room to inventory it. I have to inventory it to correct the two companies that evaluated the contents.

                Sifting through the ashes...

                Replaced the board up with an 8' wide x 10' high set of doors. This will take care of the widest and highest removal. Forklift should be delivered next week.

                Gee, all those fire extinguishers weren't much help.

                Starting to inventory. LV had $1900 in router bits. Here's the list I'm sending to FSTool, as their prices aren't online.

                    It could be. I'm looking at it differently.

                    Four plumb walls! Better curb appeal.

                    The only things that can't be replaced are the kids school projects that were displayed.

                    It could have been my home or store. This is just a wrinkle that I could have done without.

                        Kevin, I can imagine what you're going through, I've never had to, but I can still imagine. Your positive attitude is so refreshing. I can't wait to see you at the gcrjf this year.

                              Picked that up at the curb last week. My favorite chair burnt.

                                Kevin, I hope you can sort this out with the insurance company and get most your stuff back.
                                I know it's not my money but it's always better be money than health. My sister was diagnosed last month and after surgery is going through chemo.
                                A good friend of mine that I know since high school was diagnosed last Friday with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, he is not even 40 yet! I've been very depressed these days.
