Anyone with experience installing tile would be tremendously appreciated. We need the small mudroom tiled to protect the new hardwood floors since it is the only room on the first floor, besides the bathroom, that is not hardwood floor and is where we will take our shoes off. After the mudroom we have three bathrooms on the second story that need tiling so anyone willing to help will be greatly appreciated!
Merry Christmas everyone!

People who can help us even if just for a few hours:
· Someone to help fix our driveway and provide more parking spaces
Almost all the drywall is done. Currently we are working on sanding and priming the drywall, to be ready for painting. We could use help painting after November 21, 2009.
Plumber—The plumber has so much work to do and works Saturdays only so anybody who is a plumber and wants to come be a part of a blessed project and work with a fun, great christian man, come join us Saturdays or any time you have, during the week. We need to be hooked up to the new water line from the street, cap off our well water for outdoor use only and then hook up all the faucets and toilets.
Mason-- We need of a mason to fix the brick where windows were installed and the bricks had to be cut.
We also have a need for a window installer to retro fit a new window in an existing bath where there is tile. It is the last window needing to be installed.
Carpenter—We have two landings with roofs and a front porch portico to install, plus deck rails to complete a screened in porch. We will need help installing the hardwood floor towards the end as well.
We are all working every Saturday and guys are usually here during the week. Just give us a call or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , 301-528-8505 to let me know

Friday and Saturday, Nov 13 and 14 are drywall installation days. Anyone who wants to come help join the wonderful crew is welcome! Then a crew will do the finishing and someone has volunteered to do the painting via spray gun.
We are hoping to install first floor hardwood floor November 21st and are searching the best way to go about this. Please keep our flooring needs in your prayers; for God's great provision and perfect timing for our first floor flooring.

We need continued prayer that HVAC finishes their work this week, October 19-23rd, so that we can get our framing and mechanical inspection October 27th and then insulate as soon as the inspection is over (and passes). Our goal is to insulate as soon as possible and do the soffits so the rain gutters can be installed and then start the drywall. We need more time or men for the siding installation but the siding is here. Without outside help the siding will have to wait until after the house is buttoned up and drywall finished and first floor painted because we have limited men and our goal is to move upstairs to the first floor by November 16 or 23. We need to be buttoned up as we have no heat now and it is cold!
After that, we need to get the roof on the porch and overhang and install the siding (all material here now). We also need to do trimming for all the first floor and window sills for all the new windows, after we are living ont he first floor. We do not have that material yet.
The Waterboyz are coming in a group November 6 and 7 to get the drywall on the first floor complete and then finished and then a woman's ministry is coming to help paint the first floor so if we pass inspections we will be ready to move upstairs by the 16th most likely, 23rd for sure.
We will save up for trimming and flooring for the second story and finish it as soon as possible so we can move up there and start the ministries! Money is tight and we need more material then we have money for but we have enough to get moved to the first floor.
Meanwhile, we need prayer for no rain so the mason can finish the chimney extension and other brick word needing work. Drywall is being supplied at their cost, thank you Capital Building Supply!
So, we are moving on up (well hopefully by the end of November)! Thank you for all your prayers and support!

The next anticipated big construction gathering is October 17th. We are hooking up to the water line this week and will be working on siding and rain gutters and making the windows airtight.
Our big prayer is for a plumber and men to help us so we can move upstairs and we need to raise money for the insulation and drywall. We need prayer for the HVAC company to be able to come finish their work soon so we can get heat working in three weeks or so. Thank you for all your prayers!!

Thank you for checking our needs. A mason from our church is volunteering his time which is a big blessing and the roof is completely installed already! Rain gutters are the next exterior item and others are working on the deck as I type this.
Our House and the Waterboyz continue to help us out and are so appreciated:
Don't forget to check out our website (a work in progress):

People who can help us even if just for a few hours:
- Someone to help grade the property away from the house
All the internal framing is done. Currently we are working on the electrical, plumbing and HVAC. The plumber has so much work to do and works for us only on Saturdays. Anybody who is a PLUMBER and wants to come be part of a blessed project and work with a fun, great Christian man, come join us anytime you have on Saturdays.
Our goal is to get rain gutters on as soon as possible after the shingles are on since the water is all going to our foundation. After we get the electrical, mechanical and framing inspection we will be ready for insulation and drywall. We still need grading in the back and side of the house since all the work moved the dirt and now water is coming to our foundation.
Anyone who can help us with any of these projects is welcome any time and would be much appreciated! We need a bobcat for the grading and somebody who knows how to use it to grade. A person with carpentry skills that can help build the small room above the deck would really be a help. Any day of the week but Sunday is good. We will need the gables and roof on that room to be ready for shingles when they come install the shingles.
We are desperately in need of a mason to extend the chimney and fix the brick where windows were installed and the bricks had to be cut. I can work with the mason once I am taught what to do as I am home in the day dealing with the construction.
We are all working every Saturday and guys are usually here during the week. Just give us a call or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org (301-528-8505).
We also have a need for a window installer if anyone wants to donate some time. There are still some windows that need installing. The remaining windows are installed but need to be airtight and ready for drywall as they were just roughly installed.

Our goal is to get rain gutters on as soon as possible after the shingles since the water is all going to our foundation. After we get the electrical, mechanical, and framing inspection, we will be ready for insulation and drywall.
We still need grading in the back and side of the house since all the work moved the dirt and now ater is coming to our foundation.

We also have a need for window installers if anyone wants to donate some time. We have a bay window that needs installing and five other windows. The remaining windows have been installed but need to be airtight and ready for drywall as they were just roughly installed.
THANKS FOR CHECKING, AND PLEASE KEEP OUR PROJECT IN YOUR PRAYERS!
