Top of the Mornin'

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It was a busy day on the build site today with all interior walls being installed (they were built yesterday), some insulation in the basement, some caulking and the final stapling of the building wrap.

After lunch there a large piece of machinery arrived to help with the installation of the roofing trusses. With this specific building site, it would have been very difficult (pretty much impossible) to put the trusses up by hand. A small group continued working on this installation while another group of folks went to the local Boys & Girls Club to help out with a project there. Some of us left the build site early (not enough work and too many spectators) and headed to the shores of Chesapeake Bay to enjoy the bright sunshine and sand between our toes.

Our evening meal was prepared by the folks at the Presbyterian church tonight - a seafood / grits caserole or pulled pork.

With alot of tired folks, we decided we would try to head to bed early.....or at least we are hopeful! Some are playing cards, others watching a movie....some already snoring away in their bed.

Tomorrow is sure to be another busy day with putting the sheathing on the roof and prepping it for shingles, drilling holes to run electrical wires and the installation of outlet boxes and I am sure there are some things to work on in the basement an outside wall.

It's hard to believe that we only have 1.5 days left on the build site. God has been good to us, and blessed us with a wonderful opportunity and experience for this week.

Thank you Maureen Purnell for a wonderful letter.
