Construction Daily Log, Patty Parsons Build:
Date: August 29, 2011
Rob Abbott reporting
Volunteers: Rob Abbott, Vince Tourner, Ian, and for a short time, Don Evans.
Visitors: Nan stopped by; nothing escapes her notice.
It happens, and 2 volunteers who were scheduled couldn't make it. Nancy, Emily and I determined that unloading the shed floor section was physically beyond us. Fortunately, Dr. Don Evans came to our rescue, and with each of us taking a side, we managed to carry the shed floor to the backyard. Whole I went shopping, Nancy and Emily built the roof rafters.
My mother used to correct me: “Only horses sweat. Men perspire, and women glow.” Well, the afternoon sun was so hot, we were radiant; Nancy was downright super-nova. We managed to get the walls erected, the sheathing nailed on; even managing to hit on a few studs. Late in the afternoon, we got the roof rafters up, but had to stop because our nails were done; we ran out of nails.
Nan had a washing machine to be donated to the ReStore, so on our way home, we loaded it into the truck.
Next Days/Week Plan:
Tuesday- Roof sheathing, shingles, doors, window.
Volunteer Requirements: Nancy and Emily
