U.S. | Go to Canada Site

14 men and women of the Leonard Martin Group from Pennsylvania came this week – a good mixture of male and female… ages were from 18 to 73. They were skilled and energetic and got lots of good work done. We often started breakfast early and usually returned just in time for dinner. They were big card players in the evenings and also spent time putting together puzzles.

We were advised that the kitchen cabinets for all 4 houses would arrive later than anticipated. They should be shipped by March 20th and may not be delivered till Saturday the 23rd. This will affect the March schedule.

At Donna Noble’s house the crew finished the painting, flooring, and shelving. All electrical and plumbing fixtures are on site ready to install.

At the Michael Shepherd house, the flooring and painting are completed, and the site was cleaned inside and outside.

At the Janet Little house, the joints, painting and flooring are finished. All doors, baseboards and casings are installed. All electrical and plumbing fixtures are on site ready to install.

At the Falline Holbrook house the crew repaired concrete and installed insulation stops and soffit.

A few volunteers stayed in the gym at camp and painted doors, baseboards and trim. When the workload slowed down a bit, we had a small crew demolish the “tower” in the old school gymnasium.

We created a new jobcard for (36) Ruth Raleigh. On Friday we started work on a small deck hung some drywall, started mudding and installed rough-in plumbing.

On Tuesday evening Donna Noble shared with us about her experience in the flood and gave stories of her life. She expressed such great gratitude for MDS building her a new house.

On Wednesday Phil & Rosie Swartzentruber had dinner here and shared their flood story and explained their experience as LTR in the region.
