The Shell Begins

It always takes a while to get going, but it is starting to look like a newly remodeled house! We have the siding down and most of the rigid insulation up. We hope for good weather this weekend to get a lot of the roof done. If you are available to help, please sign up! We could use some roofers!

The ground was starting to cave in the foundation wall on the front and one of the sides. Habitat hired a contractor to reinforce the wall and add a footing drain. On the front they poured a new foundation outboard of the existing one. One the side they had to reinforce it from the inside with steel beams since there wasn't enough room for the excavation equipment. The new sump pump will push any water up and out of the foundation.
