The Staton Home Story
Ms Staton lives alone in her home but occasionally looks after her grandaughter and nephews. Her brick home looks to be in pretty shape from the outside but she does need some help.
The front of the Staton home
Here are the major priorities for the Staton home:
- Renovate the kitchen. It lacks cupboard space
- Repair walls
- Replace the back deck
- Paint the interior
- Repair the soffits
Other possible projects include replacing the railing on the front porch.
Check back here beginning on Monday July 18, 2005 to see the progress on the Staton home

The adults on the Staton team are: Bill Ratliff (site leader), Robert Cox and Hunter Wagstaff. The youth are Kevin McDuffie, Wendy Goss, Melissa Kelly, Katie Owens, Robert Dobbins, Kyle Shores and Doug Coats.
Mixing the concrete for the deck post
The major projects for this team will be to replace the existing kitchen, replace the floor in the bathroom, replace the back deck and repair and paint fascia boards and soffits.
The team had the added surprise of needing to replace some of the roofing where sheathing had rotted away.
By the end of the first day the team had removed all the cabinets out of the kitchen, put in the posts for the bag deck, scraped and primed most of the fascia boards and primed much of the area around the kitchen.
A good start to the week.
Tuesday July 19 & Wednesday July 20, 2005
The Staton team made significant progress over Tuesday and Wednesday.
- The deck at the side of the house was mostly completed. Stairs and spindles for the railings are needed. At various times, Kyle Shores, Kevin McDuffie, Robert Dobbins, Melissa Kelly and Wendy Goss worked on the deck.
- The kitchen is the primary project at the Staton home. The original cabinets have been torn out. Most of the kitchen has been painted and the subfloor has been prepared for the laying down of linoleum. Melissa Kelly, Wendy Goss and Katie Owens worked in the kitchen.
- The bathroom floor was torn out on Tuesday and on Wednesday the subfloor was put back in place. The existing wall board was removed and the first sheet of the replacement wallboard was put in place. Robert Dobbins tore up most of the bathroom floor.
- The fascia boards and soffits needed a lot of work. The fascia boards were primed and painted. Katie Owens and Doug Coats handled the bulk of that work. The replacement of the soffits has begun.
The Staton team is looking for a big day on Thursday
He worked hard to build that deck
Thursday July 21, 2005
The Staton team has moved forward at a steady pace throughout the week. On Thursday they completed the deck and it looks great. Most of the fascia boards and soffits are complete. A few will be left to do at the conclusion of the camp. The bathroom is coming along and kitchen cabinets need to be done. There is other detail-type work to do but the team is confident that it will get done.
Keep them in your prayers on Friday.
