Today we put up new face boards on the side of the house for the roof. We built a new doorway to the bathroom. We ripped up the linoleum and carpet in the bathroom, and replaced the floors. Cleaned up the bathroom and put in a new toilet and cabinet. Cody Shores did the plumbing in the bathroom. We took out the cabinets in the kitchen and put in a new window. We also rebuilt 2 doorframes. While working outside we were enlisted into the Hornet War 2007, were happy to say we won it, the nest was tackled and is now dead. The homeowner was so excited and happy about the work getting done to her house. She isn't nervous about anything, and said that the team is working on everything that she has asked. She really wanted her doorways widened for her wheelchair and they have already accomplished that. I asked her how she found out about Salkehatchie, and she said they were having a meeting at her church and her cousin signed her up for the program. She said "I've heard about them Methodist people."
