Our Habitat for Humanity Corpus Christi build 2012. .

In March 2012, 18 members of Chapter 444 (9 HR rigs) + one non-HR Care-A-Vanner camped at beautiful Southern Oaks RV Resort in Aransas Pass for two weeks and built on a house in Corpus Christi with their HFH Affiliate. The build was co-led by Judy Mayo and Dave Loflin.  At our work site we started with a slab and finished with a house almost ready for roofing and inside finishing. After two weeks it was complete with all walls, facings, windows, Tyvek wrapping, partial Hardy board siding, joists, stud and corner braces, trusses, outdoor shed, porch, and more.  Chapter 444 is lucky to have many experienced, talented builders.  We also had a great time together with many shared Happy Hours and dinner meals.  The Corpus Christi Affiliate organized a quality lunch for us each day – which was a nice break in the busy work schedule.  The weather was great – one morning’s work was rained out and a few days were hot and sunny – but most of the time it was ideal.  We worked with a wonderful qualified construction supervisor named Mark Blankenship who saw to it that we accomplished our goals and had the materials to do so.

 On large builds such as this one, Chapter 444 customarily gives the affiliate a gift – usually some needed tool.  This time we gave the Corpus Affiliate a hardy board cutter, a staple gun and a battery powered screwdriver.   All these tools were gravely needed and happily received.  On the last Friday evening we had a Going-Away Dinner – new members and new builders received their Hammer Pins, contributors were thanked and the Corpus Affiliate gave all workers a beautiful Thank You Certificate of framing quality.

 We hope to return to Corpus Christi next year for another two-week build – sign up early as this is a popular event.

Corpus Christi 2013 Build

Click to Enlarge 8 RV rigs gathered in Aransas Pass, Texas, on March 10 for a 2 week Habitat for Humanity build in Corpus Christi. Six of the rigs were members of Chapter 104, Sparkling City Ramblers, 1 rig was the New Mexico State Manager and 1 rig was from Michigan. Robin and Janet Masek, Chapter 104, were the team leaders for this build. Janet was the Administrative Leader. Her tasks involved all the coordination with the National Habitat for Humanity and the local affiliate in Corpus Christi with registration, making sure lunches were provided and daily devotional. Robin was the Construction Leader. His tasks involved making sure everyone had something to do that was within their physical and knowledge limits and teaching new skills to those willing to learn as well as dealing with the Construction Foreman to make sure the house was being built to code. We also had the opportunity to work with students from two universities and pass on our knowledge to them. We worked on 2 different houses while there. On one house we had to shim up the interior walls, as the house was not square. The other house had just the main outside walls raised when we started and when we left the roof decking was on and the walls were sheathed.

More Pictures are on Flickr;

There are too many photos of our builds to be putting them on our Web Site.  If we were to put all the photos we have collected to date it would slow down our web site to a crawl.  I have put the build photos on Flickr which is a photo sharing site.  This site enables us to put comments on them so our kids and grandkids can see what we do and how much fun we have.  These pictures can also be copied to your computer, printed, e-mailed or just viewed.    Click here to view them.
