Update on Smith House Restoration In Houston

Galatians 6:2 "Bear On Another's Burdens"

James 1:27 "Pure And Undefiled Religion - Helping Widows In Their Affliction"

This is an update on the Fund Raising effort for the Deborah Smith House

I conducted a detailed assessment two days ago. 

First, with respect to the funds needed .. we have met our financial goal for Phase 1 – get a dumpster in place, remove the trees from the yard and roof, replace the roof.

Phase 2 will be to ensure the house is safe – remove sheetrock – insulation – flooring - remove cabinets in Kitchen - treat for mold – fix sewer pipe in backyard

Phase 3 – plumbing – electrical repairs -  broken windows – exterior doors.

Phase 4 – put house back together

I won’t go into depth on this .. there is much to do … I will need volunteers when we start to put the house back together … and will put a call out well in advance …

I am also using some local volunteers – something that I didn’t have in Mississippi

Because of the codes in Texas, I can’t use electricians. Plumbers and HVAC from other states without having the permits pulled by local people .. down to being registered in the municipality.
