Seton’s second Habitat for Humanity build continued with our sixteenth build day on March 25
. Since our last workday on March 18
, all the shelving in the closets and cupboards and the trim/molding around the perimeter of the interior doors and some of the baseboard molding has been installed.
The work on the 25
was to prepare the duplex for interior painting, which is scheduled during the week of March 27th. This preparation included caulking: all the nail holes in the baseboard and door molding, around the doors and baseboard molding, and in and around the shelving and shelving supports in all the closets and cupboards. Also because of the interior painting, we needed to clean the floors of all sawdust and debris. The prep work included scraping the floors, then sweeping, shop vacuuming, and finally mopping the floors.
We are waiting to hear from Habitat for South Collin County to let us know about our next build day(s) as there is still interior work to be done on the duplex as well as exterior landscaping. Therefore, please check the on-line sign-up sheet during the week for additional work day(s) and changes to Seton’s scheduled work days.
In addition to the Seton volunteers who helped on the build day, the Seton Habitat Team wants to thank
for providing a great lunch of sandwiches, chips and dessert.
We are still in need of lunches for future build dates; therefore, if you (individual or business) are interested in donating food/lunches/drinks during the build, please contact Jessica Vieira at
Go by and look at the project at 1133 G Avenue in East Plano (down the street from the Douglass Community Center). It will surely inspire you to join us!
