We had discussed taking some time off once Mission Builders left to kind of re-group and catch up on tasks around our homes. Well that didn’t happen! This week we worked 47.5 hours at church. Nice work.
We finished securing the tarps with exterior and interior strapping. Let’s hope and pray this protects the building from the Winter winds.
The loose floor tiles in the conference room were all removed.
During the last few weeks working at church a lot of debris had piled up so that warranted one trip to the dump. More trips to follow. Might have to burn all of the wood scraps to keep warm this winter!
The men’s room interior wall and closet wall were all removed. It’s always fun to swing a sledge hammer hanging off a ladder. To my amazement both walls came down fairly easy. The clean up was the most challenging part. Even the steel door frame came down fairly easily as we have so much experience in that area. We took 2 truck loads of rubble to the dump to be recycled.
We also had a very large pile of metal that needed to be recycled, which filled 3 trucks full. We had a special helper this week to cart off what we refer to as the pay dirt. A collection of aluminum and copper, which paid off at $279.68 while the overloaded trucks of scrap steel only paid $ 45.40.
We said our final good bye, but see you soon to Steve Schenk as he departed for home on Sunday. Steve has been an amazing carpenter and leader for the team. We look forward to his return in the Spring.
Steve arrived safely home this week to Missouri. Bonnie and Gordon also arrived home safely this week to Montana.
Thanks for all that you do to build our church and I look forward to accomplishing so much more this Winter.
