He had an ambitious week planned and from what we could tell, good things were happening. On Tuesday, quite a few of the red hats were out there which helped quite a bit. The red hats are volunteers who have been working here quite a while and have enough expertise and experience to lead work teams.
The landscape folks came and did their magic one morning and leveled the yards and around the house doing a very good job.
We spent most of our time last week working with sheet rock on the downstairs bedroom, an upstairs bedroom, a couple of closets and the stairway. It was a lot of lifting and measuring and putting screws in.
Some of that work was later disrupted when the plumbing guys came and connected water pipes from the house to the street, but when we drove by on our day off yesterday, we could see that the front yards were covered with new sod and some shrubs.
Thursday was interesting because a large group of Navy volunteers came out to help. They were split up into half a dozen groups and off they went to help on sheet rock and the fences.
We also had to work around the plaster guys who were really turning our handiwork into something beautiful. They made our mistakes go away and put the finishing touches on the ceiling and walls using a series of swirl design strokes. It is fun to see a master at work.
At the end of the day on Thursday, the owner came over and looked at the progress. I coaxed Pam, Dotty and Joe to pose for me.
We are enjoying the Habitat work and spent most of the week at it. Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles. Hope you have a great weekend.
