Saranac Lake is once again home to the Habitat Adirondacks crew from Frost Valley. Everyone piled in the minibus on Monday morning and made the trip to their home for the next 2 weeks, Rollins Pond Campground. Everyone has been pitching in with the cooking and cleaning in the campsite. While Jacob has taken his usual role as the entertainer, it seems that all of the group enjoys singing as much as he does.
At the work site, the big project has been putting in a sidewalk in front of the house. The group spent Tuesday and Wednesday beginning to prepare the ground, setting the forms, and leveling platic.
They’ve been working at a house that Frost Valley groups have helped to build over the last 3 summers. Seeing these finishing touches go on this house is amazing and this crew has really put in a lot of effort. Aliya and Jake chiseled out some of the road to make room for the sidewalk. Julia and Kaylie have been amazing laying down platic while Carl, Zach, and Ken are the masters of laying down the forms. William, Paul, and Jake have been working hard to hammer in the stakes that hold the forms in place.
Other work has included some land clearing which has been a specialty of Kat, Ken, and Madeline. The group also spent time removing the wooden forms from part of the foundation of the new house that will be going up.
On their first day off (Thursday), the crew headed to Lake Placid for some site seeing. Friday and Saturday they will be back at the site to finish off the sidewalk and start some other projects. Check back later for another update!
