When renovations are complete, the house will have 5 bedrooms, 2 baths and 2 living spaces. As you can see in the photo below, it has a wood burning fireplace.
These pics were taken before the purchase. It's now empty and the guys have already started deconstruction. I'll be sure to keep you posted, as we should end up with some great before and after's!
The Able Attack Special Olympics basketball teams had a tournament last weekend. They played some really tough teams, and they're excited to get some wins at the next one.
Tim as been spraying polyeurethane on about anything that sits still too long. Here's the items I can think of: 12 frames that I painted, about 18 shelf/curtain rod brackets, two curtain rods, shelving and entertainment center pieces that Tim built for his basement, a mantel, and a bench. Even though spraying is much quicker than brushing on the finish, it still takes multiple coats, and with that much stuff, he doesn't even have room enough to spread it all out at once.
Dave Detloff was here this week. He started on the tongue and groove in the Trapline Lodge. Last week, Marceaux and Jerod painted the ceilings in the newly plastered rooms.
I feel like all I've been doing is paperwork. It's amazing how much stuff has accumulated for DJ's house! Between the loan, the insurance, the title papers and the offer, I may need to get a new file cabinet! This week, was due the state required water withdrawal report for all 6 wells on the property. Also due, payee report for Richard, which accounts for all the money he receives in a calendar year. Lastly, I had to fill out a lengthy report for Brian. Social Security office wants to be sure that he still has a disability.
Tony and the guys worked in Green Bay a number of days taking apart office cubicles. Tony was looking on Craigslist for office furniture and came across a guy willing to give away an entire office of cubicles and other furniture. He just wanted it gone and not to have to deal with it. So Tony said he'd take it all. It was over 24 cubes, plus conference room. We've already absorbed much of it: Tony and James Kocian are converting a large closet into two office cubicles at Living Hope Church, DJ got a new desk in his new room, we put new chairs in the Camp Daniel office, Tony took a large desk setup for his new office on the Camp Daniel property (to be built this spring), we took 3 nice tables for the craft cabin (since the Bury's will be moving out, it'll be an actual craft cabin soon), Tim Mandich took some pieces, and a walled section is being used in the vestibule at Living Hope Church. Now Tony is trying to sell what's left, which is less than half of the original amount! So it's been a huge blessing, but obviously a lot of work taking all that stuff apart, then organizing, then moving each piece here and there. Who would have known how valuable his cubicle building experience from his American Medical Security days would be!

Today, Rick Bub spent the day here painting the newly plastered ceilings.
Another new development in recent months, is the formation of the Camp Daniel Booster Club. Tim Mandich is leading this group of wonderful people whom are interested in raising funds and awareness for Camp Daniel. Tony has been working with the group on their first major event, which will be a banquet on March 23, in Green Bay. They just finished the mailer that gives the information, and those will be going in the mail very soon. We're very excited for the upcoming event and we're very appreciative of the hard work and dedication that has been poured into the Booster Club and this particular event.
Some camp stuff is underway as well. It's always good to get as much camp items done as early as possible.
