Today was a busy, busy day. We met with Robbie our construction coordinator at 7:30 and discussed the next steps at the trailer. We will all probably be working there all week. After devotion we headed back to the trailer. Four extra hands certainly made the work move even faster. Today Heidi and Ken tackled the master bathroom ceiling. They removed ceiling lights, the wet, falling, drywall and insulation – a big job. We were able to assess the roof decking and know a fairly large section will need replacing. Next step is to get on the roof and remove some shingles and see what the decking looks like from above. Max and Randy worked on removing the rotten wall in the master bedroom. What a mess but big progress is being made. Randy built the temporary wall to hold up the roof while the outside wall is being rebuilt. Max worked on removing the vinyl siding. Robbie purchased the studs and other materials we needed – $300.00 for 3 sheets of plywood and some 2x4s and a couple of 2x6s. Lumber is so expensive these days. Anne and Nell worked on tearing out the living room wall where there is another leak in the roof. This one is not nearly as bad and doesn’t involve any roof decking replacement, at least not yet. They also worked on cleaning the kitchen. We were all very tired at the end of the day but wowed at the amount of work that was accomplished. Great team!
