A huge thank you to all the volunteers that showed this past weekend with threats of damp weather. We had another successful build day at 46 E Beacon Street, with a large turn-out (30 volunteers contributed 170 hours).
The volunteer group this weekend got 150 lineal feet of exterior walls framed, sheathed and house-wrapped, raised and braced. This included 11 window and 2 door openings. This progress will allow us to construct all the interior walls next weekend and get prepared to set trusses the following weekend. We are very fortunate to have a great support from the volunteer community and willingness to work hard and gain great progress. A group of volunteers worked hard to building the side deck:Also the basement stairs were constructed allowing for safe access and material was loaded inside the house in preparation for this week’s water and sewer tie-in by the City. We plan on framing and decking the front porch as well as get all walls plumb and ready for trusses next weekend. Come lend a hand if you can to help build a home for our partner family, all volunteers are welcomed which a volunteer survey can be filled out on our website. Keep following us as the build development and another successful build takes place in the Glens Falls Community.
A site visit from our Architect, Joseph Thompson, to check in on the progress of the build and confirm a job well done by our volunteers on constructing the floor system and wall framing.
A huge Thank You goes out to Joseph for his speedy turn around on the construction drawings for permitting and ability to work with us.
