Day 10 – Saipan

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

We left at the same time and picked up a light breakfast at Windchell’s as usual, however,  I had to go back to the hotel after breakfast because I had forgotten my hat and with my follicly challenged head, I need a hat.

Duane, Danny, Anet and I started the day by finishing the purlins and the roof supports and then we installed the last of the metal roofing and ridge cap.  The roof for the house was finished before noon so we started to remove the roof above the front porch area.   I didn’t have a camera with me so I wasn’t able to get any pictures.

The other team of Greg, Kendall, Phil, Richard, Ed and Dan finished the roof on the house they were working on.   Kendall has a drone and he took some aerial shots of the two houses they finished using the drone that he recently sent to me.

This is the first house we all started last week.

This is the first house after the roof was finished.

This is the second house Greg’s team started last week.

This is the second house after Greg’s team finished the roof.  The roof next to the one they finished was a building next to the house that wasn’t damaged.

This is a picture of Kendall and Frank.   Frank is the 10 year old son of the owner of the second house.   He was at the house every day and helped whenever he could.  Kendall showed him how to do some things and Frank was always eager to learn.

It was 33 C ( 92 F ) when we left the job site at 2:30 pm, however it cooled down to 24 C ( 76 F ) in the evening.    After a much needed shower, I had my usual Capuchino before we had our regularly scheduled meeting at 5:30 pm, followed by devotions and supper at the ‘ Country House Restaurant ‘.   I opted for the tenderloin which was very good.   It had been a good day all around.
