You may have seen our post on Facebook celebrating the completion of a housing rehabilitation project on 27th Street in Gulfport. You may have also seen photos from the volunteer groups who worked on that house, which included the Minnesota Conference of the United Church of Christ, St. John’s Christian Church (Archbold, Ohio), St. John’s United Church of Christ (Mokena, Illinois), Newtown Congregational United Church of Christ (Newtown, Connecticut), St. Paul’s United Church of Christ (St. Marys, Ohio), Livingston CARES (Geneseo, New York), St. John’s United Church of Christ (Genoa, Ohio), First Congregational United Church of Christ (Appleton, Wisconsin), First Church of Christ Congregational (Glastonbury, Connecticut), Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (Muncie, Indiana), and the United Church of Christ of Pittsville (Pittsville, Wisconsin). Thank you, everyone, for your hard work on this project!
We combed through the photos and wanted to share the entire project with you, from start to finish.
This was a major rehabilitation project. It included putting on a new roof, removing some deficient additions, gutting the house to the studs, and putting in new electrical, new plumbing, and new HVAC.
Please note that we assemble these galleries from photos taken by volunteers. Sometimes, it can be hard to tell one project from another in those photos. We apologize if any rogue pictures snuck in. Also, please note that we didn’t have many photos of this project from our friends at First Church of Christ Congregational in Glastonbury, Connecticut. Sorry!
The second week of work featured our friends from St. John's Christian Church in Archbold, Ohio. The house is pretty well torn up at this point and the volunteers are getting into the HVAC and taking down the additions. They're also putting up some new interior walls and repairing/replacing an addition.
