Six volunteers were on the site from RQ Junior Force. Pam Johnson and Tim’s friend Jamie were also there.

The first task of the day was to modify some structural issues with the rafters in the front of the house.  Tim had delivered the needed wood the night before.  However it was missing in the morning (stolen), so a trip to Lowe’s had to be made to buy more wood. The task was completed by the end of the day.

The porch posts were installed.  The north and south walls of the crawl space were insulated. And lots of brush from behind the temporary electrical pole was cut down under Roger’s leadership.  A temporary bridge was laid across the utility trench.  Mr Brewer, the plumber, came and corrected the plumbing issue in the crawl space, so the plumbing is ready for inspection which will hopefully happen Monday so the structural inspection can happen on Tuesday. The hole inspection still needs to be completed.

The porch railings can be painted and installed. If the inspection passes the back porch can be built.

All the decking wood was put in the empty trailer to keep it from being stolen.

Ice was added to the coolers.

All our volunteers were wonderful making it a great day.
