Cabin Progress

The first cabin is now under roof and the wiring has been started. The shower is in the cabin and ready for installation. By the end of next week, we should be ready for the knotty pine boards on the inside of the cabin. As soon as we order and receive the log siding, it will also be ready for installation. Just yesterday, we priced the siding at an Amish sawmill. It seems they may have the best pricing.

The footers for the second cabin have also been poured. We started laying the block, but the snow stopped our progress. With the warmer weather in the forecast, we should be able to have the block completed next week. Now, we are looking for a church or interested individuals that would be willing to come and build the second cabin. We provide the food and you provide the man power. In a few days, a group of several guys could put a cabin under roof.
Thanks for your interest in Servant’s Heart Camp. We are excited to see how God uses this camp for His glory.

Muscles Needed

On Wednesday, February 16, the engineering firm is scheduled to come and check the perk rate at 9 locations on the property in preparation for designing the storm water management plan. Three holes must be dug at each site for a total of 27 holes. Only 9 of the holes can be dug with power equipment. The other 18 holes must be dug by hand. Apparently, an auger compacts the soils and decreases the perk rate. On that day the mason is also schedule to lay the block for the second cabin, and we are committed to helping mix mud and carry block. In addition, we hope to be working on the framing on the inside of the first cabin on that day.
If you have cabin fever and would like to get out of the house and get some exercise we could provide your needs. It cost money to go to the gym, but you can come to camp for free. Lunch is on us!
They are predicting for Wednesday to be one of the warmest days we have seen in two months. It would be a great day to see the property. If you are able to help on that day, please let us know. Thanks!
Oh yes, I do know how to use a shovel. I just didn’t have a picture of a shovel being used on the property.
