It all started on August 2, 2015, the day of “the storm”.
Our whole family was here in Glen Arbor through the whole thing… The storm, the fear, and then the carnage that followed. We counted our blessings that we weren’t hurt, our house sustained only a little damage, but all the fallen trees, and many of our favorite places, (trails, roads, views) were devastated. And that part hurts to this day. But then once the dust settled, and “the new normal” began to reveal itself, we kept seeing the result of the damage end up out by street, ready for pick-up… old fences, broken docks, and scraps of wood to be discarded.
And that’s when the idea came to us… to not let those old things go to waste, but to make things from them. Things that epitomize and symbolize the Northern Michigan places that we love. Things that somehow balance old and new at the same time. And things that, with a little handmade care, become something Michigan again. In other words… Michagain things.
