The fire on HWY 138 out of Roseburg, Orygun, wiped us out. I am very tired tonight & I will tell the whole story Over the next few days.
My son is in route from So. Cal. to help us. You have seen the drone shot of our home, WELL this is it today.
I had friends in places that got me & Mrs T to our home today. No-one is allowed in yet, but we were blessed to have a "friend" that got us to our home. The fires are still burning & trees are still falling. IT IS A FUCKING WAR ZONE. ALL 14 homes on our road are DUST, YES DUST !!
I have my wife, that shithead Macaw, my pickup, boat & motorhome, NOTHING ELSE !!!
When it happened, we were here at the coast, waiting for the tuna, so we are just fine.

My entire machine shop & wood shop are GONE, FUCKING DUST !! It had to have been a 3,000 F fire. EVERYFUCKINGTHING is melted !!!
If you care to see more, it is called the "Star Mountain Fire".

I will up date in a few days, as I must get back there in the morning.

AGAIN, we are safe & fine.

Sorry man, those photos are remarkably eerie.
Extra sorry to hear about losing the machine shop and woodshop. Lots of projects in progress (I'm assuming) that will never get completed. And all the time amassing the tools...
Keep us updated.
Thanks CC AND I absolutely will keep my "family" up-to-date on the "happenings"

Sorry to see all that devastation! Happy you and the mrs are safe. I live with the worry of wildfire as well, and the smoke in the air tends to cause me some anxiety and if I got burned out I would be devastated as well. Hope and pray all goes well for you both.

No doubt there...

Easy to see you're tuned in, and because so, I've always enjoyed your posting, from your incredible machinist competence, something that I've aspired to and just barely machined the surface of, sorta the way the tuna saved the lives of your klan, if not the home terrain. The home terrain is rebuildable. With time and effort, something you may not want to deal with, and you're ten years older n me should not be forced to do.

Now comes the insurance defaults, sorry to be debbie downer, but that's the next step with this flaming, insurances defaulting...

And remember, it's just a cartoon. With a wide bushy mustache grin...

My heart goes out to you & yours...

After ALL THE WORK YOU DID - What a DISASTER! Glad you & yours are safe (& hope that the insurance aren't @$$holes)... Gonna have to sift through the ashes to find the melted "stack"??...

So much work... from your post in another thread, what a shame...

https://www.goldismoney2.com/threads/building-advice.351071/


If your ground water level is good, I would suggest a full basement, you will never be sorry, it's a lot of space for little money. In addition that solves the slab v crawl space decision. As you age, you will find a slab to be hard on your legs. A raised floor is more resilient. 3/4 Oak floors eliminate the carpet costs.
Water witching is a viable way to find water & a good guy will tell you how deep & the flow rate. I much prefer well water to chemically infested city water. Check well costs, it might be a 5 to 7 year payback.
A metal roof, if the city allows it will last longer than you will. I really like mine.
I bought a great property with a shit hole house & I rebuilt it, I raised the roof 22 inches & the chimney 4 feet.
Just trying to show you how a metal roof looks.
Oh, one more thing, our property has a slight slope so we have no steps into the hose on one side & 3 steps on the pther. Moving furniture & other stuff in is sure nice with no steps.
BTW, shootist knows a lot too.

This is the before shot

I still had not done the front deck at this time. Synthetic wood is great for decks as it holds up well against the weather.

Wow, what a loss, & I'm so sad & sorry that you are walking thru this!
If I didn't live on the other side of the country, I'd be there to help in any way I could.

Mr. T, I just said a prayer for you. I know the months ahead will be difficult as you adjust for this loss. I pray that your insurance will be generous with you, and that in the end you will be better off than before the fire.

What a body blow! I don't think I would have your positive attitude, and I am a bit younger.
Glad you are safe, best with the nightmare that is sure to follow trying to get your life back on track.
The one thing you can't replace is your lives, so you won I guess.

@TAEZZAR at least all your gold and guns were safe at the bottom of that lake.

All jesting aside, I’m sorry to hear about your misfortune and I am glad you and your loved ones are safe.

I just came to the site and saw this....I'm speechless! I'm so sorry for all this loss but very thankful you're all OK. I'm sure you'll be very busy so will ping you in IM and let you sort things out.

Anything I can do brother, let me know!

Tazz, i am so sorry for your loss. I wanted to come out tuna fishing but the timing of my surgery was off. I hope and pray you are able to rebuild your place even better than before. Best of luck going forward.

Last night on FB I was reading a post from an old army buddy. He and his dad lost their family business there yesterday. Burned to the ground. A heating and cooling company. I was thinking about you then hoping you were all right out there. Now I see this. Very sorry to see you have to go through this.

Tazz, reading this is shocking and surreal, my deepest sympathy's for the loss of your home, shop, and property. I was relieved to read that you and your wife are safe, and in your motorhome with boat and truck. You have the basics to get though this and rebuild.

You're a creative and highly capable man, you can get thought this. Glad to hear you are already making plans. Keep us posted.
