The Fence the Gutierrez Family Built

Gutierrez fenceWe’re almost there! The Gutierrez family built their fence this past Saturday under Construction Project Manager Paul Stromdahl’s supervision. There was a fence in place, but it was in such substandard condition that we had to replace it. “It was pretty horrible,” says Stromdahl. But the new fence, as you can see, is sturdy and ready for duty!

What’s Left to Do?

Gutierrez fence 2Stromdahl’s leading a work party this Saturday, August 27th and is planning to tackle the following:

  • Installing bifold doors
  • Putting up towel bars
  • Installing door knobs, cabinet knobs, and drawer pulls
  • Starting on the shed

Want to help? Work starts at 9am (plan to get to Sumas by 8:30 – 8:45 for instructions from Stromdahl), breaks for lunch around Noon, and continues on until 4pm. Bring a sack lunch and wear comfortable clothes/footwear that covers your whole foot (no sandals or open-toed shoes). Call Janet at 360.715.9170 or email volunteer@nullhfhwhatcom.org if you’re planning on coming out. It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend for building!
