2018 Build Site - 507 North Carico, Carbondale, Illinois

We will be working several days this week!

They will be working on shingling the roof tomorrow, Sunday, July 15 starting at 10AM. If you feel secure on the roof and want to learn, head on over.

They are also going to work on Monday, July 16 starting at 8AM. They're going to start working on soffits and such.

Then, of course, we will be working Saturday, July 21. We have about 25 students coming from the SIU Summer Bridges Program so we're going to have a work FORCE! We will need supervisors and people who can find and instruct on use of tools. Many things planned - continue on porch, soffits, insulating around windows and doors, roof, if it's not done.

We had a GREAT crew there today when the shingles arrived. Our retired roofer came and instructed our homeowner and a couple others on how to start the valleys. Other folk worked on the porch. They got the concrete for the posts poured and got the decking on the roof. A few volunteers from SIU Women's Basketball were there and they built a rack in the house, unloaded all the siding, organized the wood and cleaned debris from inside the house. As Jim says, "We're catching up!"

The OTHER Jim is asking that anyone collecting plastic bottle caps for the Boys and Girls Club bench, PLEASE get them to him by NEXT Saturday, the 21st! That is the last day they will be collecting them.
