Thursday Am

yesterday was a great day for most teams. Most teams got all their walls up and even many got portions of the roof up. The next phase is to wrap the house in tarpaper and then to put chicken wire over the tarpaper that will hold the coat of stucco. 

One team, tie-dye did have some difficulty. The ground they had poured there slab on was not quite firm enough to handle the weight of the slab and gave way causing the slab to sink. Amor determined that it would be best to move that team to another site. Yesterday afternoon they moved to a site that another church had started to build but wasn’t able to finish. Tie Dye will be able to finish that house along with the other teams this week. Amor will come back and fix the slab and give the Family that was promised a house a house within the next couple of weeks.

 

When the walls go up it really starts looking like a house!

 

  

  

 

 

Tie Dye’s slab gave way on the side which caused the slab to sag. You can see the line showing level just above the slab. 

  

Tie Dye team gathers at their new site.
