James Hartman: Final build day on the Gulf Coast ride
March 11, 2022
By James Hartman
Today was our 3rd, and last, build day. We were in Sulphur, LA working on 3 homes.
On one home we were painting the entire outside. We managed to get one coat on the house when we ran out of time. I’ve posted some before and after pictures. It’s the blue house. The 2021 NAIA College Football Champions from Morningside University in Souix City, Iowa were working on the inside of the house.
On another house, we stained a wheelchair ramp and helped the homeowner clean the inside of her house. She had recently had a stroke and struggled to do things by herself. The wheelchair ramp was a life changing improvement for her. It now meant she could get out of her house safely and her friend who is in a wheelchair could now visit her.
On the 3rd house, we installed insulation, put up drywall, and replaced the foundation joist.
