March 14, 2017 Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work and progress we made in March. We've had the electricians in for new wiring in the kitchen and living room, the crawl space has been insulated, drywall has been put up in the living room, bedrooms, and kitchen, and new flooring has been put down in the three bedrooms. It's nice to finally turn the corner from demo to reconstruction, isn't it?
Come April we'll finish the flooring, put in the sliding glass door in the kitchen, install the replacement windows, have the plumber come in, and hopefully get the walls and ceiling ready for painting. Thanks to everyone who was able to come out to help, especially the members of the Architecture Club. As always, it was good to work with you folks. If you haven't been able to make it out for one of our work sessions, I hope you'll think about joining us in the coming months. Thanks to our lunch sponsors for the food and drink to keep us going!
Just so everyone knows our schedule of future events, we are off the next two Saturdays in March and will pick up again on April 1.
March 6, 2017 We are still working the first two Saturdays of each month on the Holmes Run house rehab. The termite treatment was done this week & they found more floor joist damage on the east side where the deck ledger board attaches to the house. I am about to order the windows, sliding glass door, & interior doors. Rusty & picked up the 12" sliding compound miter saw & stand that was donated by Mr. Harrington. It is stored in the house.

January 28, 2017 Rehab Project: We have removed all of the cabinets in the kitchen, the fireplace in the living room, and the termite-damaged flooring in the living room and two bedrooms, demolished part of the wall between the living room and bedroom #1, removed the vanity in the bathroom, as well as all of the doors and trim throughout the house. In addition, all the termite damage has been professionally repaired, so we are making good progress.
Right now we are scheduled for the first two Saturdays in February, as always, weather permitting. The first Saturday we'll remove all of the debris from the house and place it in the dumpster, take the kitchen down to the studs, remove all of the HVAC duct work and insulation from under the house, and repair the walls and floor damaged by the termites or termite-repair. Depending on how much we get done will determine what remains for us to do the second Saturday, but will surely include removing the deck.
