We had a great time Saturday at Volunteer Day #8… with the help of comfortable temperatures (~55ºF), good house tunes, and three outstanding volunteers, we installed radiant barrier on the south and west interior walls of our building, which made a great background for our team portrait (above)!
Saturday’s volunteer day accomplished even more of what we can do while we wait for final clearance to proceed with construction (see our progress here). In the meantime, join us for more store events… or have fun building the store with us by becoming a volunteer!
Thanks to Saturday’s fantastic volunteers! Once again, local coffee + local tacos + actual locals = success. Here are some select shots:
At dawn Saturday morning we began our first workday, removing salvageable materials (light switches/fixtures, ceiling fans, cabinets, etc) from the inside of our building. Since our construction team will need to renovate the whole building, we wanted to “rescue” these reusable items before we start punching holes in the walls!
With the help of a french press and some great homemade kolaches, it took our team (plus our friends Matt, Jack, Lauren, and Brian – thanks, you guys!) about three hours to remove 9 light fixtures, 2 ceiling fans, 14 cabinets, a garage door opener, and a whole bunch of outlets and switches. It was a great time – here are some shots of the fun!
This was a trial run for our upcoming volunteer days – where you’ll get to join the fun. If you’d like to volunteer, make sure you’re on our volunteer list!
