Construction Update March 2015

Construction Update, 3-12-15

-Unseasonably warm weather has been a “boom” to outdoor construction tasks for us at 67 Wally D, since back to mid-January, really. We have finished the siding, and have some trim and battens to put up, along with soffits. Lou is nearing completion of the electrical which will unleash a flurry of activity inside the house, beginning with insulation and then sheetrock. Plans are on schedule for a May completion for the Brenna house!

-Construction of the Playhouses on Parade project is done, and drawings for the playhouses will be held at the SWIMBIA Expo next week. This year, the kids in Mr. Islay’s Construction class at Park High School in Livingston did the work with my supervision. It was a real pleasure having such engaged kids jumping in and seeing the project through. This year they built a Saber-toothed tiger skull playhouse. If you haven’t purchased a ticket yet, there is still time to do so, and help raise some money for the Livingston Ed

ucation Foundation.

Lori Michaels finished

-I just got word today that the Critical Repair project for Lori Michaels is finally done, and she has new siding and soffits! (A huge THANK YOU to Tom Schafer and his crew for making this happen!!!)



-It’s only about a month and a half away from Mother’s Day….which means we are closing in on another scheduled Women’s Build! If you want to participate, contact Katie at the main office…

Mark Baker, Construction Supervisor-For other volunteer opportunities, let us know soon, as dates are beginning to fill up for the summer. We currently have regular work days at the jobsite on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but can schedule “special” days for bigger groups. There are also volunteer opportunities with the ReStore….so call the office and ask us.
