Work continues on the house:
- The roof sheathing has tarpaper but isn’t shingled. The Enterprise spiffy mobile dumpster is on site.
- The pump jacks are setup on the south side of the house. Volunteers installed soffit on that side and starter strips for siding. About 4 rows of siding installed Friday afternoon.
- The back deck was framed and decking installed. Rick Gallagher and Henry finished the decking Saturday.
- 4 Volunteers from the Boonshoft School of Medicine Physician Assistant’s program worked hard on siding. About 1/3 of the south wall needs to be done.
- Rick, Henry and I installed second floor house wrap in the wind. There is wrap for the shed and about a dozen button nails left.
- Ron Koesters simplified my life by pulling a bush out with his big Chevy Duramax, saving my back and lots of digging. I talked Tim into bringing the trailer and the first rub to South waste dump center ended quickly as they were closed for the Fourth of July holiday.
- Plumbing materials were delivered by Pickerel brothers – thank you!
- Brush to about half of the south neighbor house has been cleared.
- The porch columns were installed and the roof sheathed. The stairway is installed.
For next week:
- Remember, the jobsite is closed Tuesday July 6 to observe the 4th of July for Construction Superintendents!
- Wednesday the trash needs to be hauled to the south Waste center, then all the brush taken to the yard waste recycling.
- Second floor windows can be installed.
- Siding work continues.
- Roof shingles likely to be installed next week.
- The final row of house wrap needs to be done – likely when the pumpjacks are installed.
We continue to be blessed with good volunteer turnout, and some kind benefactor who had a dozen Bill’s Doughnuts and a dozen muffins delivered Friday. Be safe, be hydrated and continue to do good work.
