CONSTRUCTION REPORT:

          11/16/'14            Portlandville Property (Town of Milford)

This past week the attic was insulated and all of the main floor sheetrock screw heads now have three coats of mud. Most of the tape joints have two coats. The sheetrock in the basement was completed and taped. The propane gas tanks were installed, but not hooked up. A trench was dug from the tanks to the connection on the house. Most of the water filter system was installed but lacks a few plumbing connections and electric power.

This coming week we hope to finish the spackling with 3 coats, connect the propane tanks to the furnace, run the power to the filter and pump and get the furnace going. So far we have been operating a portable LP gas heater to warm ourselves and dry the mud. It will not be long before we will be painting!

Morse Street Property (Oneonta):

Peggy Fowler has been leading students and other volunteers at 3 Morse St. to get that property cleaned up. The lawn has been mowed and some trees removed. In addition, trash from outside and inside (including old rugs, furniture, clothes etc.) were placed in a dumpster for disposal.

Respectfully submitted,

We always need land!

We are currently looking for a building plots in the Oneonta and Cooperstown School District. If you are able to donate land, or know of some inexpensive land for sale anywhere in the county, please either email us or call 432-7874

Our WISH LIST:

This is a list of stuff that we sure wish we had. Remember, your donations are tax-deductible and we can supply you with a receipt. Call our office at 432-7874, leave a message about how you'd like to help, and we'll get back to you..

Pennies from Heaven:

Cash – we are always grateful to receive, in any amount. And stop by our office to check out our Habitat merchandise – books, hammers, notecards – all priced to sell!

All your worldly goods:

We always need refreshments for our laborers. Lunches, morning snacks, and juice, iced tea, lemonade, and sports beverages would be terrific.

We need people to volunteer behind the scenes
on our family, fundraising, public relations, and volunteer committees. And people for our Board of Directors. For a relatively small donation of your time, you will receive a world of fun and friendship in return.
We would like a person who has the experience and contacts to promote us to local and county governments.
We would also like a person with photo/video experience who could develop a promotional video!
And if you have specific building skills to bring to the site
(and maybe a desire to teach or lead a small crew) – wow!
