Work Day #5

Pauline St. Site: Giles, Mary, Carla, Glenda, Bob, Emma
Wickfield St. Site: Kathy, Lyn, Nancy

We were all happy to see there was no storm damage from the storm that came through over the weekend at the Pauline St site. That crews continued with the baseboards and moulding as well as touch up painting.

The Wickfield site doors finally have a solution. Cut off the bottom of the doors just enough so they can close. We can’t fix the crooked floors, so that’s all we can do.

We prepped the place the re-tiling must be done after the plumbers fixed the plumbing and installed new greenboard. Someone else will have to do the tiling. We don’t have a tile saw with us, nor do we have any tile.

At lunch, we ran into the same guy from AT&T. Kinda freaky. We’re in a different neighborhood and at a different restaurant. We talked to him a bit again.

After we finished up at the Wickfield house, we went over to the Pauline St. house. We got there in time to meet Tamika, who will be living there with her grandfather. She loved how the woodwork looked. She thanked us several times.

The board Emma made and we all signed was given to her. Emma had a hard time parting with it, but I got a bunch of photos so I can put them all together and she will have a copy. Mom brag alert: She did an AWESOME job. All we told her was “design and draw something” and she came up with all on her own.

We anticipate being able to get most, if not all, the woodwork installed tomorrow.

Today’s Volunteer Labor Debt Reduction:

8 hours x 9 people x $18 = $1296
