We finished framing in and putting on rafters on House 6. We had to put a tarp over the rafters because we are short on screws for the metal roof. A deck, on top of which the house sits, was built for house 8 and 9. We built two and a half arctic entry ways in the New Village. All of the homes in the New Village will have these entryways. It is almost another room where they can store things. We built porch steps to the five homes in the village. The five homes in the New Village are all studded out and ready for the electrical boxes. We wizarded and sanded all the logs that we had on hand.
We finished building house 1 and built house 4. Wilbur spent a lot of time with Samaritan’s Purse on electrical decisions. We began putting up logs on house 9 on Thursday, which is the last of the two-story houses that we will be building. We put up eight rows of logs by Saturday afternoon for that house.
Roger continues to help Nick (house 10). House 11 is being framed in by Samaritans Purse. They are responsible for that entire house. House 12 is Don’s and they are waiting for lumber and the lumber company where they bought their package will come out and help frame in the logs. Samaritans Purse is planning to help on house 12, as much as needed. House 13 is on hold because of the decisions that have not been made yet. They plan to pursue the building next summer.
MDS volunteers are known for repairing and rebuilding homes damaged by disasters. But it takes more than construction skills to serve with MDS. During the time that you serve as a volunteer, you will learn that MDS also restores lives.
Your contribution will help to connect volunteers with disaster survivors who need assistance on their path to recovery. MDS depends on the support of people who believe that disaster response is an important part of helping those who are in need.
