were covered for building a 2nd home in June 2016:

estate tie-ups.)

week.

(4) Bill of Materials: Develop to 2 separate lists for Bellevue materials, Lumber King and Lowe’s in Somerset.
(5) Berthing at St. Joe‘s:
(a) Could exceed the 30-bed limit of St. Joe’s Inn with sleeping bags at times.
(b) Extend reservation from Wed, 15 Jun to Wed, 22 Jun for 2nd Home Finish Crew.

up the Roofing Crew. The Construction Director suggested and Harry Wallace, the Good Shepherd Chapel P.O.C.
