We started at Kelly's house where her front porch needed some attention. As in needing a good coat of paint or two. So we finished up what we started last week. We began by cleaning the porch, ceiling and rails with the high pressure power washer, then scraping, then applying two and three coats of paint.
Sometime last week I looked up the local Habitat for Humanity organization and found the South Hampton Roads HFH. This group does work all around the area: Hampton Roads, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, Norfolk and some other places. I made a call and left a message with Sharon who called me back and told me there was a build going on at two houses, side by side in the Red Mill area here in Virginia Beach.
They are about 10 minutes from our campground so it couldn't be any more convenient. We showed up on Wednesday and went back again yesterday. They are a well run group and some friendly people. On Wednesday, Pam and I were upstairs in the King family house and did sheet rock work all day.
Needless to say, I was pretty sore on Thursday. Curiously, I did not take a single photo of our handiwork. But we had plenty of photos from our work on the roof at the house next door yesterday.
Yesterday, I spent the whole day on the roof with Joe, the construction manager.
The team is pushing hard for a house dedication on October 30. They will have work crews of volunteers everyday except Monday. We are planning to be back at it on Tuesday.
We were bushed after we got back from work yesterday. Pam took a shower while I took a quick nap before dinner. After dinner, we walked to the beach and enjoyed the beautiful moonlight reflections.

When we got back, I took a shower and we watched the American League Championship series. Congrats to the Texas Rangers who played another great game.
Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
