Mary's House Progress Aug. 31, 2012: Footers are being poured

News from the Mary's House project

It had been planned as a bank house, now, keeping the construction on schedule, it's changed, by necessity - it seems for the better.

When Michael Meyer of Mercy Lane Construction and Danny Fudge of Fudge and Son Construction shot the grade with a transient, they discovered that there was not enough slope to the land for a bank house as was originally planned.

That didn't slow things down at all: Mary's house will now be constructed above ground using the exact same floor plan. And there was a bonus. Building above ground saved time and money on site preparation.

Then, thanks to beautiful, dry weather, David Abrell of Abrell's Poured Walls and his crew, James Willis, David Abrell, and Allen Absher dug and poured the footer for Mary's house Thursday of this week, August 30, 2012. Fran Neat

Mary's House went over the top at 11:30amCT, August 9, 2012 And the major effort on the fund drive was complete, enough so that the Mary's House committee was assured that, with reasonable trickle in additional funding, God's Amazing Grace would see the project through to completion. Hopefully, donations will continue to come in, so that the next major fund drive might be for another cause.

Your help for the basic furnishing of the house is still needed. If you haven't contributed or if you would like to add to your original donation, information is included below:
Mary's House: the story and the contacts:

Checks are to be made to Cane Valley Christian Church Benevolence Fund with a memo of "Mary's House." The Start Construction goal has been met, but money for hidden costs, furniture, and contingencies is still needed.
