Construction Info (Big Creek Campus)
Thank you for serving with us! Your talents as a construction leader will be invaluable as we serve our local residents here in Kentucky.
Here are some things to keep in mind regarding our construction projects:
Most of our projects are focused on Roofs, Ramps, and Floor Replacements
- Roofs: We almost always install metal roofing due to its ease of transport and ease of installation
- Ramps: We have a standard ramp building guide we will provide you when you arrive.
- Floor Replacements: Many of our homes have damaged floors due to moisture and insect damage. We rip out the existing floor and joists and repair / replace to the best of our ability
Our main goal is to provide a SAFER, CLEANER, and STRUCTURALLY SOUND repair. It may not always be pretty, but it will be much better!
Should I bring my tools? Feel free to! We have five tool bins for five teams. However, your tools will only provide more (and sometimes better) tools to our teams. HERE IS A LINK TO WHAT EACH OF OUR 5 TOOL BINS INCLUDES (Big Creek Campus)
How do we get materials to sites? We have ONE truck at the mission, so trucks and trailers are VERY helpful for construction. We need additional trucks and vans to transport tools, and whatever vehicle you bring will be utilized to transport tools and possibly lumber. Please consider bringing your truck as it will be a great help.
Will we finish the project while we're there? Many of the projects we undertake will last for several weeks - so you may not see the finished product. Since our purpose is serving the homeowner, not the "project" - we hope you'll find joy in serving even without seeing the finished product. Remember - the PEOPLE are the purpose, not the project!
