CtBS lost a wonderful house builder with the death of Jerry Shell yesterday.
Jerry Thomas Shell
MARCH 31, 1938 – JULY 30, 2020
“Catch the Building Spirit” pays tribute Jerry Shell, a dedicated house leader who passed away on Thursday, July 30, 2020. Jerry was part of the CtBS family of workers for over 18 years. His building skills and expertise made him an excellent house leader and teacher. He was always willing to teach new volunteers.

There were several from Wright State University service club Compassion in Action who helped with siding.
A grateful thank you to Enterprise Roofing for installing the roof last week. The did a superb job as usual. Work on the house progresses steadily.
The Golden hammers, St. Christopher KC Ted Schurr and Steve Albers have kept the project moving. The garage trusses were set Tuesday and Mark and Max were on the roof installing sheathing today. Ron Koesters was the cut man and I got there at 12 to help finish the garage roof. If you haven’t been out to sample Tim Jordan’s wife’s bar pizza, it is tasty. Keith had 38 volunteers at the Women Build site Monday – he about had heat prostration. The sewer and water is stubbed at the sidewalk. Blue insulation and siding are on site.
By the grace of God, the project is moving along.

We had a good day on Tuesday with eight volunteers.
93 degrees! Water line and sewer is in to the sidewalk. Garage roof trusses sheathing coming soon! Keith will have two builds and one repo house update on the same street!
