I'm back at my home in Missouri from helping out down there but may go back in a couple of weeks, the spirit I saw in the people affected by the storm was amazingly positive and a great cando or overcome attitude. We hope things work out well for your family members.

Thanks, Rigdon.
We are doing ok, just tying to decide, line up contractors to do:
Remove tiles in kitchen n foyer. We just decided to get rid of them. Ones in kitchen hugh size, cracking
Put up drywall, at 2 ft level.
Flooring, both laminates n carpet. Then baseboards, 1/4 round.

Son in Vidor, Tx will have long road to go. And you right. Talking to son and his wife, I surprise how upbeat they are over this, saying we will deal with it, rebuild. Me, I would be crying.

I would suggest cutting the drywall for removal at 24 1/2 inches high, it makes it really easier to replace and cutting the new drywall at 24" . That way you get ease of installation and two out of a 48" sheet with baseboards covering the 1/2" gap at the bottom. All of their interior doors are either warped badly or falling apart. My family down there is really upbeat about it all and now are facing a cancer scare.

Good info. Unfortunately, already cut at 24". They can cut sheet rock at 23 1/2" if that's what it takes to fit.

When ripping out drywalls, notices small blocks at bottom, they appear to be maybe 3/8" thick. Not sure, never put ruler to any.

Here's to say, give a BIG thank you to those who contributed to help my son Neil and family.

The current tally is substantial!

Helping Neil past Saturday, I was amazed over Joni n Neil's spirit. Instead of crying over their misfortune and losses, they say it's gonna be ok, we will rebuild, with a smile. These are tough, hard working kids taking it, looking on bright side.

Being a large contributor list, doubt Neil could personally thank each of you. So Amy asked me to do this for Joni and Neil in a general way.

Thank you!
------------------------

Contributions still needed. So if willing....PayPal via peggydaigle@bellsouth.net. Or make check out to Neil Cotham, mail to me, 1110 Baltic Ln, Houston, Tx 77090.

Pray for those impacted by Irma.


:like Awesome

First of all, Happy New Year to all.

As a follow up to last one regarding my son Neil, his wife and 2 kids, impacted by Hurricane Harvey, he just posted this to us via Facebook -
*****************

Progress. First room is getting paint. All the walls are up, finished, and getting paint soon. Still a lot to do before we can move back in. I wanted to say thank you again to everyone that supported us through this, the process has been long and tedious but I am enjoying working on my house.

Peggy Daigle Harris, Mickey Cotham please share this post with everyone that has helped us through this journey.

*****************

Gotta say, theses kids are so calm, collected, and brave. Their attitude is “we’ll get over this”.

In my neighborhood we try assisting, watch others around us trying to rebuild.

Some making good progress. Others are not.

Some have walked away from their homes, ill prepared for any rebuild efforts. Some taken insurance monies, sell home for mere pittance and relocating.
Neighborhood will not be the same.
