Bala Build Patty Parsons Project


Construction Daily Log, Patty Parsons Build

Date: May 9, 2011

Rob Abbott reporting

On Site:
Site Supervisor: Rob Abbott
Volunteers: Super Nan, Brian McDonald, and Bill Niece.

Daily Log: The January weather and deep snow wasn't exactly conducive to yard work and landscaping at the Bala homes, so we had to postpone a number of outside jobs for this build. Howard is unavailable this week so the barrel bottom was scraped for a supervisor for the site today.
Sunburn and blackflies were the biggest hazards today.

We loaded up my trailer (with my spiffy new tow-vehicle with thrice the horsepower and even a back seat) with a quarter-ton of debris from the site, plus about the same in re-usable lumber and recyclable metal for the ReStore. We finished by 10 AM and went to Brian's home for coffee.

I then went on my usual trailer trip for the rest of the day unloading the trailer at the dump and ReStore, and loading up and delivering the sign frame to Muskoka Signs.

Action/Follow-Up Items:

  • Schedule Scott Glover to re-grade – Rob
  • Order lumber for fence – Rob
  • Source contractor to repair porches – Rob and Brian


Next Days/Week Plan:
TuesdayWed TBD – possibly re-grading by Scott
Thursday or Friday, TBD – I'll see about renting a brush saw, and clear out all those tag alders and sumacs and take them to the dump.

Volunteer Requirements: None until Scott is finished, but I may need some help dragging brush.

Materials/Tools: Rent a brush saw.
