Day 285 - Many Christchurch poor live in appalling conditions

Monday, 5 December 2011 1:46 p.m. by addingtonaction Popular

Reprinted from Letters to the Editor - Saturday December 3 2011

Our first job today was to return to Elaine's house on the Cashmere hill to collect the remaining scaffolding pipes. These were 6m long, so we attached the tall 'H-bars' to the trailer to give us clearance over the car.

Our second trip was to take materials to Julie's house, ready for the internal wall rebuild. This room had been water damaged but after a few weeks running a dehumidifier, and some nice plaster sealing by Joeli, it has dried considerably. We will start the build on Saturd ...

Today spent a few hours painting Michelle's lounge. We applied two coats of white to the ceiling and two to the walls. On the team today were Mike, Michael and Niana, who is from Brazil and going to study here next year. We used donated paint, and mixed "Cotton Seed" with white for the walls which made a light cream colour. It was really easy to apply with the long extension roller, and came out looking great.
