During the week the Building Committee poured sidewalks at Amanda’s house.

On Saturday June 11 Angela and Bonnie hosted and Cindy took photographs. First United Methodist Seekers Class member Linda Francis gave a devotion during our coffee break and the class provided a great fried chicken lunch.

At Amanda’s house Roger worked on the electrical box and Judy finished painting the white trim. Inside, we are awaiting the drywallers so that we can begin painting the interior sometime soon. Ken and a group of volunteers moved dirt in the lawn to level it out.

Elle is pictured in front of her house, which is awaiting a concrete floor pour. Jerry moved dirt around the foundation so that the concrete people could access the house with ease.

At Luvianne’s house volunteers waded in the mud in the foundation to set re-bar so that we can pour concrete next week.

At the warehouse Amanda and Brian started painting their trim.

At the site, Jerry and others sited the foundation for our third house for Lu and her four nephews.

We had a group of about 30 people on site today and much was accomplished. Bonnie Mumm provided a devotion for our coffee break. All three home-buyers, Elle, Lu and Amanda, were again on site along with a future home-buyer for 2023 working on his 20 hours to qualify.

This morning building committee members brought the picnic tables from the Warehouse to the build site so from now on we will be able to have coffee break and lunch at the site. At noon the Kearney Women’s Club provided a great sloppy Joe lunch.

A group of volunteers finished the siding on the south side of the house while some others worked on installing soffits. . .and inside, a crew worked on putting up drywall behind those who were blowing insulation into the walls.

We had a great group of volunteers today to paint Amanda’s house a beautiful grey color. They got the first coat on all the house and a second coat on the Garden Shed.

Do you think we have enough painters? ;)

Part of a sidewalk had been poured, so volunteers removed the bracing to get ready to pour a driveway.

Dobytown Kiwanis provided workers and lunch today and Charlie Pickens provided a devotion for our coffee break time. All three home-buyers were on site and a future home-buyer for 2023 was working on his 20 hours to qualify.

During the week the Building Committee members worked on siding, started getting ground ready to set the front sidewalk and installed the tub/shower unit into the bathroom. Bob Geist has been working during the week to get some drywall up on all the ceilings and then some.

On Saturday, about 30 volunteers accomplished a lot of work. Two crews worked on siding the north and south sides of the house.

Ken painted the edges of the house so volunteers can start putting up soffits. Vicky and Elle painted Amanda’s garden shed.

Inside a crew worked on putting up the netting for insulation and then blew in the insulation. Fred Kempf put backers in the walls. Brian and Tep worked on putting up three layers of plywood in the safe room.

Charlie Pickens helped Ken set up an organization area with buckets. . .

And there’s always cleanup!

April 23 and April 30, 2022

April 23--Today is the UNK Big Event Day across the community and we had about 15 students help us. Volunteers from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church served donuts and Evie Gulachi-Johnson provided the devotion at our coffee break. Another group from the church provided lunch for our volunteers.

During the week the Building Committee members put in the windows and doors at Amanda’s house, finished placing the last piece of sheeting on the roof, completed installing blueboard on the sides and peaks and started marking the outer walls so we can start siding.

Another trio of people planted bushes along the north side of our property on 17th street.

The Garden Shed that the Committee put up during the break in January thru March comes in handy to store tools and supplies.

On Saturday the 23rd, students helped by moving dirt around the base of Amanda’s house while others helped clean the out-lot at the entrance to our sub-division. Other volunteers began installing the siding.

Great Job on another windy but beautiful day!
