Week 2 We had a good week. We started on the 2nd house where we covered a large hole in the ceiling and one on the wall.  Removed and replaced wood flooring.  At the 1st house we insulated a bathroom, removed a firebox that was rusty, placed cabinets, dry walled and mudded walls in the bathroom. We also repaired the brick exterior around the breaker box.  We had 5 couples on Monday and another couple started Tuesday. We had a total of 316 hours for this week.
