16 Oct Construction Update – October 16, 2015
Last Saturday we planned to build the storage barns for each of the houses under construction at Mint Farm, but we had to cancel due to the rain. Two of our Partner families, however, would not be deterred from earning, or adding to, their Sweat Equity Hours and attended to some of the remaining interior painting at the Tribute House. Pictured at the top are Lakicia Ressie Pusha Greene and her husband Tevin, and below are Crystal and Orlando Johnson. Keep up the good work guys!
The painting of siding on the Tribute House began this Wednesday. Arthur Morrow and Bruce Wager are two of our longest serving volunteers. They shared their very strong opinions about the color, Royal Navy.
On Thursday, Gary Bull, freshly returned from Maine, Bob Albon and Jim Laughphane were working on installing siding and they too shared their opinions about the color. What do you think? Is the Royal Navy against the white trim too dark? or does it look really sharp? Responses to the Facebook post would be much appreciated! Paris stayed out of the debate. He was working on installing base board in the Stud House.
This Saturday the weather forecast is finally looking great for the building of storage barns, so please come on out and join Daniel and friends at Mint Farm Work begins at 8 a.m. and ends around noon.
The weather has been gorgeous this week, and promises to be even more construction volunteer friendly next week. If you have completed volunteer orientation, and have a morning free next Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m. sharp, please consider coming out to volunteer. We need you!
Both houses are close to being finished but we can’t do it without our fabulous construction volunteers. Thank you for everything you do for LowCountry Habitat for Humanity!
