Did you see the shelter before September 2nd? The siding was falling off, and the rotting wood beneath was becoming more prevalent.
We set out to raise money over the past 2 years to pay for the exterior upgrades. While we raised as much money as we could to fund the project, we did not raise the money we need to cover all the costs. We couldn't wait any longer. We needed to repair the wood on the building and replace the siding that had begun to fall off the building.
September 2, 2014, Hearts and Hammer Remodeling started removing the old siding (recycling the aluminum), and giving the shelter a much needed facelift. By removing the old siding, we will not only increase the beauty of our building with new vinyl siding, but it will allow for the installation of building wrap (help keep the wood beneath dry and the shelter more energy efficient - keep our heating and cooling costs down), and repair to the wood exterior of the building that had rotted over the years. We cannot wait to reveal our building after all the upgrades have been completed!
If you have already donated, THANK YOU! We could still use your help in covering the costly upgrades to the shelter. Can you please support us? Any amount will be appreciated.
