(Follow up on the topic of Fred’s House – see the next post down)
Good morning everyone! I just picked up the 2×4’s and screws at Arruda’s hardware store. The 2×4’s cost a little more and will all need to be trimmed because they don’t carry stud sized, but they donated the delivery and will come shortly (today).
We have collected $938. in less than 24 hours, so we are a pretty united community here! Thank you to all of you who donated, shared and sent will wishes! This means that Fred’s house is not far from being a reality. Just heat and a light to go!
MEET: We expect a nice weather day tomorrow, thus, I think we should start by framing the panels. I don’t want to put my address and phone number on the internet so, I ask that you meet me tomorrow morning at the Tim Horton’s on Barton Street (the new one between Wellington and Ferguson) at 9:15. This is 9:15 SHARP. Please don’t be late. because I will stay only five minutes to collect the volunteers. I have a car, and other volunteers will too, so if you are taking the bus, we can hopefully car pool to my house.
If you have a drill, circular saw, gloves, please bring them. I have only got one of each of these things. I am also hoping someone will bring a set of saw horses.
If anyone in the group has a truck, it would be seriously appreciated if you could do a plywood pick up with me some time today (or very early tomorrow morning before we meet). Arruda does not carry thin – light cheap plywood (they start at $20 sheets and we need and want to have the $10 stuff.) If anyone can do this, please comment here or on Facebook PRIVATELY with your number and I will call you ASAP to arrange).
Next weekend when we build, I will also need a truck or two, and some people to help lift the panels on the truck at my house and off the truck, at Fred’s house site. So I am looking for volunteers for this (otherwise I will have to rent one).
Depending on how many come, I think that we can frame all the panels in one short day. But if we don’t get the hands, I will be back here Saturday asking for people to come.
sheryl, anything going on next week? i would be free and would love to help. pah…
So great that this is already coming together and I can’t wait to see the progress!
