HIP 2019 CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE & SIGN-UP INSTRUCTIONS

2019 is the year Habitat Interfaith Partnership (HIP) is scheduled to build another home for Flower City Habitat for Humanity (FCHH). "HIP" is a coalition of churches and a civic group which include: First Presbyterian Church, St. Louis Catholic Church, St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Pittsford United Church, Christ Clarion, The Islamic Center, Temple Sinai, and the Pittsford Rotary Club. Together we try to raise $65,000 every three years to build a home, however, this year for the first time we were only able to raise $50,000 principally due to the loss of coalition membership since the last build. Therefore, we are going to be doing a "rehab" at 356 Campbell St. which we can afford.

The tentative date for us to begin is Tuesday, March 19. This could vary somewhat due to weather; our site supervisor, Rob, completing a home on Whitney St. and volunteer loads will also impact the duration of each task as well. Thus this is a loose schedule that is likely to change over time.

Week 1 (03/19-03/23): Sand Drywall Finishing, Wall Prep, & Start Painting
Week 2 (03/25-03/30): Painting to Continue (Walls & Trim)
Week 3 (04/01-04/06): Install Interior Doors & Trim
Week 4 (04/08-04/13): Continue Trim Install & Caulking
Week 5 (04/15-04/20): Continue Caulking
Week 6 (04/22-04/26): Detail Work [Closet Shelving, Bathroom Accessories, etc.]

Week 9 (05/13-05/18): Continue Landscaping & Fencing
Week 10 (05/20-05/25): House Prep for Dedication (Cleaning, Power Washing, Transporting. Materials & Tools

The house has been drywalled and that is the point at which we will begin our work to completion.
This year you can volunteer for working a half day or a whole day. This should make it possible for mothers or fathers to volunteer for a morning after sending their children off to school or anyone finding a morning to volunteer. You are welcome to bring friends with you to volunteer their time as well. You can select to volunteer for a morning and if you then want to stay the whole day that will be great.
