Rehab work on Grand Blvd
Today's work was at the block 600 SW Grand Blvd OKC, OK 73109 through Habitat's Critical Home Repair program
Our site lead was Chris, working under Eric and another volunteer, Jeff. Today's task was several tasks:
- "The Great Door" : Tommy, Jeff, Art - reinforcing the threshold and replacing the main/great door
- Replacing outdoor siding: Lorin, Virginia, Matt, Shirley, Denise, Pam, Jeff and Gary - a tiring, dirty job of removing composite siding, revealing asphalt siding, then replacing it with new siding
- Drywall : Matt, Chris, Frank, Peter and Craig. Prepping ceiling drywall for bedrooms. Insulation and drywall on the back porch. And Craig/Peter's special plywood project, covering the floor of a closet.

The rehab work we did was rewarding and utilized our team well. Everyone was busy and either teaching, learning or figuring things out together....
