CAMP JOY WORK PROJECTS, AUGUST 18 - 25, 2010
The Moore Project:
We worked on the home of Nance Moore, an elderly widow. Nancy’s trailer had a collapsed kitchen ceiling due to a bucked roof. We removed the ceiling, built new support tresses and raised the roof from the inside! After successfully stabilizing and enforcing her roof, we replaced the kitchen ceiling.
We also painted her shed, put silver fiber paint on her roof and redid her porch floor.
The Thompson Project:
Barbara Thompson, a widow with grown sons, lived in a trailer with a collapsing back wall. We tore that wall down, constructed a new frame and replaced the wall. We also built a closet, tore off an old wall, replaced insulation, replaced a door and painted the trailer’s roof.
The Hite Project:
We tore off an old roof and replaced it.
The Meade Project:
This year, we returned to Judy Meade’s trailer. We replaced 3 windows, fixed a back staircase, painted the roof, installed some guttering and put a “skirt” around the foundation.
The Brown Project:
We tore off old flooring, replaced the new plywood and laid floor tile.
