We started work today and boy did we work.
Jerry, our site manager, fully unveiled the project today in the lovely town Castlewood, Virginia. Our response was, “Jerry, we need to dig how many holes? The ramp is how long?”
The project is to clear brush, build a ramp from back porch down the hill for 38 feet and then jag to the left so that the homeowner can access her house and avoid a steep set stairs at that front of the house. Steep is a relative term in these parts.
We calculated that there will be 20 plus post holes to be dug and then assembly of the ramp.
The following pictures show some of the events during the day. Natalie Henning offered the reading at Morning Prayer today, Mike Sanchez mugging for the camera in a selfie and what we think is a beautiful shot is Rob Johnson showing is daughter Kaitlyn how to safely use a chop saw.
We built the top deck and assembled the bottom deck. We then dug 10 post holes. Just so you know, battling limestone in this soil is a joy that the team can universally say is not fun!
On separate activities:
- Chelsea and Denise Burgess sorted out the food requirements today and then made dinner for the team! Meatloaf rocked.
- Rob, Denise, Chelsea and Kaitlyn delivered the dresses to the storefront and we are prepping for the first young ladies.
