Coastal Bend, TX RV – Weekly Report – Feb 4-8, 2019

February 14, 2019

At the end of January we said good bye to two couples and February brought in two new couples. We remain at six couples in Rockport, Texas.  Our new couples are Dennis and Joanne Friesen from Manitoba, and Henry and Joan Janzen from British Columbia. They join Jim and Jan Smaill from Manitoba, Richard and Rosemary Prieb from Kansas, Wayne and Val Papple from Alberta, and Wayne and Delores Yoder from Ohio.

Laminate flooring was completed on the second house. Doors were hung so the painters could start their work. Caulking was done as needed. Installation of the baseboard was completed.  

The third house was started this week with caulking outside. Four people from our team were on that job.  Painting the hardy board was done as weather permitted.

Starting another house always feels good. Looking forward to finishing a place adds to the work excitement.  Some from the group were able to attend the All Unit Meeting in Tuscon, Arizona, where old and new acquaintances were built.

As we look to next week, there is a need to install insulation under a house that is built off the ground eight feet. That will then have hardy board covering the insulation.  Painting the hardy board follows that. We should finish painting doors and trim in the second house. Miscellaneous things like door jams, door knobs, towel racks need to be put on to add the finishing touches.
