TENTH DAY OF WEST VIRGINIA SERVICE TRIP: PART 2

by Eugene Anku ’20 Isaac Lee ’19

Today we continued with siding at the worksite. Since it was our third day doing it, we had become more knowledgeable about the procedure. It was a quick process and by lunch time we had already finished the left side of the house leaving only the back which we began after lunch.

Two people measured and cut the soffit while three of us set up the H and J channels and then fit the soffit. Our cooperation and experience made the work almost rhythmic and fun. After we finished, we went to the front of the house to help the others with porch and discuss the plan for tomorrow.

The weather was nice and lunch was filling as always, which put us in our usual high spirits. Although Mike was in charge of porch construction, he was nice enough to check up on those of us who did the siding. He made jokes and interacted with us frequently keeping the atmosphere lively. Today was tiring but we all feel proud at the amount of progress we have made on this house.
