The Gabriel Home

Monday, July 23

The Gabriel Home: Today we stripped both sides of the roof. We took out the kitchen floor, and have put in new floorboards. Ripped out the floor in the bathroom and storage area. While ripping out the bathroom floor we discovered raw sewage under the house. Our plan is to rebuild the both floors from scratch due to floor damage from the sewage.

Yesterday we discovered that in the bathroom the toilet was offset allowing sewage to leak under the home. So we ripped up the floors and today we replaced the floor joist. We shingled the roof. While on the roof Kelsey was pulling on a hose and the air compressor fell and almost hit Baker and Michael. Also while working on the house today, an inspector came to look at the house. He talked to Baker, meanwhile the whole site was freaking out. Come to find out Jerry Kita knew the inspector and had set the whole thing up, just for laughs! Today was also the homeowner birthday. The whole site came over and sang happy birthday. The homeowner is not worried at all about anything and has full confidence in their team, however he was quite frightened by the staple gun this morning.

We built the frame for the back deck. Built the frames for the walls in the bathroom. New floor in the laundry room, and currently working on plumbing.
