Volunteer Christian Builders - Fall 2017 Project Recap

Posted by on

Our task for this project consisted of rehab/remodel on one of three 12x48 mobile housing modules.

The camp had acquired three 12'x48' mobile housing units from an oilfield equipment liquidation auction. All were built on steel sled-type frames for transport from location to location. Priority was placed on turning one of the units into living quarters for one of the camp's staff intern couples.

Work began by removing all the metal outer covering, exposing a large quantity of decayed OSB wallboard and rotted framing. All the decaying materials were replaced and all interior paneling and ceiling materials were removed. All electrical wiring, switches, receptacles, breaker panels were removed, replatted and replaced by our crew. After relocating windows, doors, and air-conditioning unit openings, all exterior siding, and trim were then replaced using some masonite panels and cedar ship-lap siding. New soffits and fascia boards were also installed. A new 2'x6' roof joist structure was installed, then decked, then roofed with new metal roofing panels. Another group will come in to finish interior work when plumbing is finished.

The FBC Allen crew wishes to thank you for your prayers and support. If you would like to join the Volunteer Christian Builders in future projects, please contact Ken Kemp.
