Starting Work In Laurel

Monday, May 10, 2021

Today began with Ken and Heidi inviting us to sit in on their 7:30 meeting with our construction coordinator, Robby, since we are scheduled to take over lead next week.  We began by discussing the new job site we were going to today and Robby shared our scope of work.  After a short time at the site, we suspect that scope may expand.  A double wide mobile home was donated to the agency and we need to prepare it for moving to a new site.  Unfortunately, a tree limb fell on the right end of the home some time prior to the donation and there was some significant damage and subsequent leaking.  Part of the ceiling in the master bedroom and master bath were on the floor.  Some pretty significant repairs will be required on the roof and ceiling as well as the front wall.  There are a few other locations in the house that have some water damage as well.  The agency is planning to re-roof the entire house but that is not on our list of work.

After devotion we all headed to the job site and we began by cutting back some of the foliage in preparation for the movers.  We cleaned out the master bedroom so we would have room to work and pulled up the carpet to allow the floor to begin drying.  By then the morning rain had moved out and we returned to the outside work.  Anne and Heidi worked on removing the skirting and Max and Ken helped Robby replace the tarps on the roof.  They also removed the siding on the right end of the home.  We got more done today than we expected.  It was a productive and fun day and we got to know Heidi and Ken a little better.  We had met them once before but never worked together.  They are talented and fun leaders.  This will be good week.
