The Shakin' Shack - It's Gone

This was the Shakin' Shack up until May 8, 2005 when it was dropped to the ground. We put the Browsers' Bookmobile on the cement pad and use it as an annex library for the extra books I can't fit into The Men's Study. It's all set up with a great view of the ocean. Additional plans include a nice swing set, a large tramoline, and a green house to grow extra vegetables.

After

Before: November 2001: "The Shakin' Shack" (18x36) down below. Needed a lot of work! You might be able to tell that the right front part of the roof has been lifted up by the wind. That's corregated steel that the wind decided should have a new curl to it. I'm told that winds have reached over 120 mph in years past.They got to 80+ mph in November, 2001.
