On July 24th, 2017, Preston passed away from complications due to an inoperable tumor on his liver that prevented oxygen and blood flow and, within the course of three weeks, quickly shut his body down.
We are looking to raise funds to help Preston's family with medical expenses, a public memorial service, and the roof of the family home that Preston was in the process of fixing. All money goes to his wife, Kathleen, and the Roberts family. Please contribute today. No donation is too small.
Sheds, Barns, Workshops, Picnic Shelters, Adirondacks, Tree Houses, Cabins, Chicken Coops, etc…
The wood for these projects was sustainably harvested on our property from diseased, damaged, dead, or cull trees and sawed at a neighbor’s sawmill. The hinges and stained glass windows are flea market finds. The clear glass windows were salvaged from the landfill. The only new items purchased were the nails, screws, and the metal roofing.
I can close my eyes, see a space and in my mind’s eye, and I can count the number of boards it will take to build it.
July 17, 1957 - July 24, 2017
