Myrtle Beach, SC RV – Weekly Report – Jan 7-11, 2019
January 14, 2019
Our first week on the project site was great! We have 10 volunteers: Fred and Millie from Alabama; Al and Lina from Alberta; Lynn and Darlene from Indiana; Todd and Bonnie from Missouri; and Ed and Ruth from Oklahoma. Everyone had arrived on site by Saturday. Sunday we joined other campers for the campground church service at 10:00 am.
Our current job assignment is at Ms. Patrice’s home which was totally gutted due to 3-4 feet of floodwater entering the home. Monday, we began removing the exterior siding and the flood-damaged sheeting under the siding. New sheeting was installed and interior insulation was started. Throughout the week, this work was continued, as well as some plumbing work which included installing a shower and tub. By Friday, the insulation was finished and we began work on installing exterior siding. We hope to have most of the exterior siding installed this coming week.
On Wednesday, Ms. Patrice brought a pot of chili for the crew. We all enjoyed her delicious meal. On Thursday evening, we met at the office trailer for a potluck supper and had a good time getting to know each other better.
