Weekly Report for Bastrop, TX

February 5, 2016

Progress on the four new houses is going well. Open wall inspections on the first house allowed drywall work to start. Final stages of work on Memorial Day flooding jobs means those clients will soon have their homes complete again.

For the start of our fifth and final new build local TV and news reporters were on hand to document this happy occasion and to get reactions from the client and local officials.

The work on that house is off to an excellent start which matches our goal of completion by April 1. Balmy sunny days are contributing to the progress of the work and the sun tans/burns of the volunteers. On Monday, a local restaurant prepared and served a special meal to all of the MDS volunteers in Bastrop County, including all of the MDS RV group.
