“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” In my humble opinion, my “storage shelter” will be “splendid”!! It is truly remarkable how David took salvaged pieces of pipe and engineered a structure that will withstand an earthquake. The five cement “anchors” weight over one-hundred pounds each. The wind won’t topple them!! Pipes slide together; pipes slide into angled “joints”; screws hold them so they won’t wiggle apart. We’ll make every effort to secure the camouflage tarp but recognize that a hurricane could rip away “the roof.” (Hopefully, no hurricane!!) ~~ The first two pictures show the completed structure.
Allow me to take you back to the beginning… and bring the pictures up-to-date. To the left, an Internet picture that suggests the original retail item. ~~ David graciously hauled the long-neglected, rusty, dirty pieces from the yard of a friend (at Escapees Rainbow’s End RV Park).
