Saturday was one of those not too hot, not too cool days, so alot of work was accomplished.
The remainder of the roof sheathing was installed,
The trusses were all braced and all sheetrock nailers installed on top of all the interior partitions;
The basement furring installation on the walls was completed;
Blocking for cabinets and grab rails were installed;
The rear porch landing was framed and decked;
Proper vent installed in the trusses for insulation;
And the front porch was started to be framed.
Also the electrical service was partially installed and outlet and switch boxes mounted in the house. The electrical work is being provided by Reddon Electric of Ballston Spa which did an awesome job on last years build. Welcome back Pat Reddon!!!
WHEW!!! I’m tired just typing all that stuff. GREAT job by our ambitious group of volunteers who also were treated to a delicious lunch provided by; Molly Mason Jar restaurant of Luzerne and Price Chopper of Queensbury. Please support these businesses who support our great cause.
This week the shingles will be installed on the roof courtesy of East River Builders of Luzerne who was one of our strong supporters of last years build.
This weekend the work schedule will consist of installing doors and windows on the exterior and the start of the siding.
Hope to see another energetic crew of volunteers to continue making great progress on our build.
We will not be working the weekend of Sept. 4th so everyone can enjoy the last big weekend of summer.
Next Saturday we will install doors and windows and start the installation of the siding.
