Daily Log November 17, 2011

Who was on site
Larry, Bill, Doug, Emily and Vince (Project Manager, reporting)
A team from Beaver Creek came and worked on our mudding and tapping as well some boarding was done in the basement.
Muskoka Air Systems came today to start on our duct work in the basement, thank you.
Kerry and Tyler.
Jason from Gravenhurst Plumbing hooked us up for the water to be turned on.

What Happened
The drywall taping is progressing well, with careful expectations of completion (main floor) this week. Larry continued with front stair railings.

Plumbing supplies from Bala, 2010
What next
Full on Mudding and Taping should be complete next week and off to priming.
The siding shipment has been a little slow in arriving, due to the company’s volume of sales this season.

Still Needed
The primer through Home Depot, shall be picked up early next week.

Many people have come together to keep this project moving forward, many thanks to
you all.  Some more expertise would be helpful with the taping and mudding of the
drywall. With some luck we will have Jesse back for extreme taping and mudding.

Further down the road
The siding team will get started as soon as the illusive siding colour is available.

The drywall lift for ceilings has been returned. All tools required are on site.

Food and Drink
As per drywall schedule
Many thanx to our food teams. Especially to Mary Grey of Gravenhurst who continues to go beyond all expectations.

We are all up to date.
My thoughts
Thank you to all who helped to complete the ceiling board, not an easy task. Go team
*** Jesse is awesome at taping and teaching some tricks to our team of skilled regular volunteers. Thank you all who help with the seemingly endless list of little things, they all really count in the complete picture. The Beaver Creek lads bring a smile and a keen interest in giving back and working hard.

EDITOR'S note:
I taught a Creative Writing program in Beaver Creek, as a volunteer teacher. It was most rewarding and I saw, first hand the results of our crowded prisons. Here is a piece of writing from one of my participants.
