Building Update - May 22, 2007

Moss House
We competed sheetrocking the windows frames and 90% of the corner bead is up. Just one corner in the kitchen needs to be completed.
Art filled all the gaps between the floor and sheet rock with strips of plywood
We had a small team but energetic one - Thanks to Art O., Sister Mary Rose, Glen (single volunteer), Kathryn Moss, Brianna Moss, Diane (my wife), Sharon D'Alessio, and Rose (Sharon's friend)
This Saturday we will be completing the corner bead, start spackling the seams, and possibly installing window sills in the kitchen (if I get to Home Depot)
We still need to attack the bathroom, if I have some skilled folks maybe we can get to spackle that also

D'Alessio House
They completed the sheathing over last weekend
Inspections were happening this week
Shingles are going on this coming weekend
Another great weekend for a great team - Bill G. - you and your team are doing a GREAT JOB
Jeanne stopped by and plans are being made for the gardens at all the houses. Looks like there will be activity during June.

Building Update - May 6, 2007

Another good weekend, Progress was made on both houses. Sharon D'Alessio was onsite manning the sign table and organizing the trailers in between. She was a big help.

Moss House
We continued to sheetrock. Torry and the team completed the last high wall and a lot of the Kitchen/Living room. The window sheetrock capping was started. Next Saturday we should be able to complete everything. Sharon Cole's team was there for the sheetrock, they helped the QOM team with outside clean up.

D'Alessio House
The QOM team completed some more framing tasks and did allot of clean up on the site, Saturday was a short day for them, as they are waiting for roof trusses which will be there for next weekend. This week the grading will be completed so the trusses and roofing can begin next weekend.

Building Update - May 1, 2007

We had a great weekend at both houses. The QOM TEAM out did themselves and got the entire D'Alessio house framed and sheathed. GREAT JOB Bill.
The Allentown Church crew continued sheet rocking the moss. The completed the bathroom, Master bedroom, Vestibule, portions of the kitchen, and they even rocked the cathedral ceiling and one of the high parts.

Next weekend......

Moss house
- Complete sheetrocking
- Start finishing around the windows
- Sheetrock the furnace room

D'Alessio house
- Bill is trying to get the trusses early, but might not make it. So they will probably do some clean up work on framing. --- Again Bill -- Great job over the weekend.

I will be onsite Saturday morning. Torry will cover the rest of the day at the Moss house.
