2018 Build Site - 507 North Carico, Carbondale, Illinois

We will be working Saturday, November 10th at 507 N. Carico in Carbondale, IL from 8AM until Noon.

There aren't enough ways to say THANK YOU to Guido Bernstein and crew (Bernstein Painting, Inc.) for coming out today and getting all the walls painted!! This saves us so much time so maybe we are "catching up"! AND, it looks amazing! Al, from F-W-S Countertops also came by to check measurements for the countertops. And Channel 3 News came by to talk to us about this great donation of time from Bernstein Painting, Inc. Watch for us on the news today at 5, 6 and 10PM.

Donations of time and materials from individuals and small businesses are really appreciated as we know they will "feel" the impact of these donations more than large companies. But on that note, I'd also really like to thank the PEOPLE at Lowes in Carbondale. I've gotten such great help and service from the folks in the paint department, Pro Services, flooring and the door section lately and the folks at check-out.

Next Saturday, employees from the City of Carbondale will be volunteering with us as we dig in and scrape and clean the floors and hopefully get started laying the vinyl plank flooring.

We are also very grateful to Marshall Norman of Carterville who came in Monday morning to spray the primer throughout the house and painted ceilings and closets. We appreciate the support of people and local businesses who help us build our community.

We're also grateful to the SIU group, Society of Women Engineers who will be volunteering next Saturday, November 10 at a Minor Repair Project south of Carbondale. We're still looking for a crew for our Minor Repair Project on November 17th. We need 6-7 people. Let me know if you are available. Thanks!
