Rebuild Bayside Joinery
Bayside Joinery Company suffered the loss of their shop in Cobbs Creek, VA to a fire on January 21st, 2019. Despite the valiant efforts of the local volunteer fire department to save it, the 6,000 square foot woodworking shop and accompanying storage unit where Bayside manufactured components for their unique coastal homes burned to the ground.
Owners, operators and father-son team Rick and Luke Andrews refuse to let their plans for the future go down with it. They plan to rebuild a new woodworking shop on the existing concrete slab that is still intact after the fire. They intend to do the work themselves and source the materials locally from building supply company M&M in Hartfield, VA. The projected build date is Summer 2019.
All donations will go towards covering the costs of bills and building materials for the new Bayside shop in Cobbs Creek, VA. Your donation will support two local businesses and their employees, but that's not all!
All donators to the Rebuild Bayside Joinery campaign will receive an invitation to a cookout celebration upon completion of the new shop around Fall of 2019.
The lucky donators with donation amounts of $500 or more will receive a VIP invitation to the cookout celebration, get a first look and tour of the new shop, and receive a hand crafted wood cutting board made by Luke Andrews!
We believe that with your help, these small, family-owned businesses can continue to make a difference in home building and support surrounding communities.
If you are interested in donating your time instead of a financial contribution, we could use your help! Manual labor volunteers for the site cleanup are sorely needed. All volunteers will receive an invitation to the cookout celebration upon completion of the new shop around Fall of 2019!

Thank you for reading!
Today Rick & Luke made a trip out to the site where the shop used to stand. They spent the day cleaning up what debris and metal they could with their hands and with the use of a crane. While they got a lot done today, there is still a mountain of work ahead of them before the site is ready to be built upon.
A big THANK YOU to the friends who have shared our fundraising story on Facebook so far! And an even bigger THANK YOU to our first five financial donors: Brenda, Emily, Katie, Janice, and Smidge. Your support means the world to us.
