strange leak and notes

Larry found that the strange leak on the east side shower was a pinhole in a pipe…been there for some time, we just did not notice it. He also said that there was humidity in the cabin and we found a few chairs filled with it. Could it be that the mattresses are too?? We also have to keep the extra beds in some place other than the mechanical room. It is a safety hazard and it also impedes the use of the room as a shelter.


The fan on the east side bathroom of cabin went out and the fan on the west side of the bathroom in the cabin is also wearing out. We need to change them this fall.


Thanks Larry!


I heard and I saw the results that Bob and Renee came out to take down the duck tape mud fence! Thank you! Thanks too for the work on the sewer cover! God bless you!


Next Saturday would be a good work day if anyone wants to come out! The following Saturday there are two groups.




Leonard on the notes: Green Team meeting notes



In addition:

#6  watered the roof of the house and "think' I found and corrected the problem.  thinking of getting into the attic and placing a bucket to catch the leak since it ALWAYS comes thru the same place.


#12  hayrack  The plywood looks pretty bad but I crawled underneath.  The planks look fairly good, maybe a weak spot here or there. removing the plywood will help save the planks.

#14 Septic tank lid   we can cast a new one, fixing would be hard. DONE


New item  The gas pipe attached to the propane tank has been jerked and there is a kink near the tank connection.  Bending or straightening the pipe will likely cause a crack.  There is no leak now.  I shut the gas off at the tank and will bring a flaring tool and connector next trip.


Lets consider taking down the rain gutters on the west  of the house and south of the garage.  because of the pavement they are not really needed except to be cleaned.


Going flying,  bye.

Leak in shower plus party

Please note!


I just found a strange leak in the east side handicap shower. It has been spraying out for awhile. There is mold starting too. I turned the water of to that area, if someone could look at it that would be great!  


Don’t forget our going away picnic for Jessi on Sunday!  August 15  (Joan Patten’s b-day too) and 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm drop in. Evening prayer and rosary at 5:00 pm followed by BBQ and Potluck Supper – bring a side dish, drinks or desert.


Thanks, Teresa
