Williams Lake, B.C., Weekly Report, June 25-29, 2018

July 9, 2018

The work in Williams Lake continued at a steady pace with much enthusiasm and laughter, especially around the supper table.

The work at the Jim and Sue Carlson home continued with completion of the subfloor on Monday.  All the walls were framed and readied for trusses, which arrived later on Thursday, allowing us to get a good start on placing them.  In the basement the crush gravel was placed and leveled, the underground electrical was placed, along with the communications conduit, and the electrical panel was installed in the basement, bringing the power right to the work site.  As a send-off, the Carlson’s sang a duet, “God Has Not Promised Blue Skies & Rain” to the crew present the last day there.

At the Joan Scheffler home the work progressed at a steady pace.  Half the roof shingles were installed with a good start on the other half.  The basement floor was poured and finished and the needed basement interior walls were framed.  All the electrical rough-in was completed by a qualified electrician among the volunteers.  It is at a good place for the incoming youth volunteers next week.

The Sandi Chilton home was also started this week after a one day delay because of heavy rain and the slick conditions on the site.  After the excavation was completed, the house footings were placed and poured.  After removing the forms from the footings, it is ready to start the ICF foundation blocks, leaving a “Lego Block” puzzle for the incoming youth group volunteers.
