Yeah, I think the screen room is done for. Almost every support connector is either completely snapped off or twisted, some both. It would take somebody with a lot of patience and welding experience to fix it.

The roof supports, the canvas roof and the screens are still good though. I'm trying to think of a way to connect the existing roof supports to 4 x 4's sunk in the ground, and 2 by 4 going around the sides. In each corner, the roof support fits into a sleeve that is then attached to a plastic cap that sits on top of the poles. One of them is broken where the sleeve attaches to the plastic cap. I don't know, I'm not an engineer. Or even constructionally inclined. I have mentioned before my troubles with angles. Now if you need something spun, I'm your woman!

Here are the two fleeces I managed to get washed.

Black and rose gray. These two are now off the drying rack, and have been replaced with two rust colored fleeces. Only a few more to go.

I bought the wasp killer. Now which of you brave souls is going to volunteer to come here and open the car door so I can spray from far far away?

I'm sad to hear that the summer haven is unrepairable. What a bummer. I wish I knew how to weld or something so I could help you out.

The fleeces look so soft and cozy. I can't wait to see how to you dye them and spin them.

Take care Annie. Hugs to you and your Mom.

Maybe you can find a local farmer that has a welder and will do the repairs for you? The fleeces are beautiful!
