During the day it was clean up, vacuum and get the floors ready to be sanded.   100 years worth of dirt around the baseboards, in the window sills and closets, and now it looking very good.   The floor sander will be rented for the weekend so hopefully all the upstairs will be done and ready to varnish.

David and Zack are coming from Fort Collins on Sat. evening.  They’ll be bringing Tino and Rachel back (who flew in from NY) with them.  Framing will be done this weekend and early next week.   The electrical will be assessed on Sat. to advise on supplies that will be needed.  The students (with supervision from Ken) will be doing all the electric wiring over the next 3 weeks.  We’re so happy to have their support.   Big thanks to PCC for this opportunity.

Update on the Pueblo House

For the past couple weeks we have been working on the house and networking. Tino has painstakingly done most of the brick work now (inside is done) so we can start framing. The walls inside and out were pretty bowed out so it was affecting the windows and other things not being in alignment. After some serious brick and mortar work it’s a lot more stable and looks much better. We’re going to be working on sanding windows, doors and floors over the next couple weeks. (more…)

The gang is here

Tino and volunteers were busy working on the house while I was away being occupied by other things. Big thanks to David and Brandi for coming all the way from Fort Collins to help with the house and yard sale.

All our local volunteers were very hands on: Anne C, Anne B, Cheryl M, Don P., Glen B, Dr’s Pam & Gary P, Charles & Georgine B., Josh & Skiv and anyone I might have missed for helping with the yard sales and house reno’s. We could not have done all of this without you.  (more…)

Anyone and everyone is welcome to come to Pueblo to help work on the “little red house”. We managed to get this little piece of history in a very cool spot next to a community garden. Since arriving end of July there’s been an outpouring of help and offers to make this little house into something very special. (more…)

After arriving on Monday it’s been a whirlwind of excitement and a pouring out of offers to help renovate this little red house which was donated recently. We would like to thank Mark Carlos for giving us this house and an opportunity to show the community what we’re about. Pueblo, CO will be South Colorado Hub (SOCO) for Occupy. Since posting the information we’re happy to report that the community has come together in a great way to ensure we have the necessary tools to get the job done. (more…)
