Patty’s Dedication in Pictures

I promised pictures, and here they are: The completed stair, in-progress handrail, finished floors and cabinets, and of course the dedication Friday. We — Jason, Brian, Brandon, Richard, Mike, and I, as well as some great volunteers — put in a focused effort to get as much done as possible. With the help of Hands On friends — Emily, Ian, and Brian — we worked Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to disassemble the upper stair, build the lower stair, and begin the railing. Additionally, an energetic group from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro shoveled and raked several tons of fill dirt and gravel in order to roughly lay out some landscaping. And Patty’s friend Mike, a painter, spent the week staining the wood floor and sealing the slate tile, with fantastic results.

The concrete landing and step by Gerry and John from Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod, the new stairs and partial railing, and the gravel walkway laid out by the UNCG group:
