Senior veteran Door repair and replacement and repair again

June 17th & 18th, 2023
Someone had broken through the front door to a senior veteran’s home while he was at the hospital, so we installed a new front door, matching deadbolts and locks for the front and back doors. Thanks to Karen for your help.

Part TWO:
Veteran story part 2. We received a phone call early this morning from the veteran that we just put the new door and locks in his home. He said that his (occasional) roommate had died and the police had to kick in the front door to get into the house. He didn’t hear her come in because the new door was so quiet, and she must have locked it before she passed out (OD’d). He couldn’t get to the door in time before they kicked it in. Good news is that the door and locks worked perfectly, but the bad news is that we had to rebuild the frame. #veteransdeservebetter

May 27th, 2023
We completed another wheelchair ramp today – this is the 10th of the season, so far. Thanks to the AMAZING help of Andrei, Lindsey and Aidan, this one was completed in record time. I had someone ask me how much it would cost to build a simple ramp like this one. If you can find someone to do it, a ramp like this one cost around $5,000 to have one built. These are not just home improvements; they are life improvements. As always, thanks to the Agency for Community Transit (ACT) for your continued support.

Wheelchair ramp for chair bound teen in Foster Care

May 25th, 2023
We received a call from DCFS about a 15-year-old boy who was wheelchair bound due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy. They asked if we could help. He and his sister are in a foster home, and he has to be carried into the house. He is going to have back surgery soon to help stabilize and straighten out his spinal cord – he’ll never walk, but this will help him breathe better. Today was the first time that he was able to get out of the house without being carried up the stairs. Thanks for your help, Abraham. Much thanks to Whitney at Foundation 6141 for sponsoring this project.

Safety fencing installed for veteran

May 9th, 2023
We were contacted by a building inspector because he had to cite a 78-year-old veteran for an unsafe situation on his property. The veteran had already fallen off the retaining wall, knocked himself out and had to get surgery on his shoulder; so, the situation was really unsafe. When we did a site visit and met with the homeowners, they asked if they could pay us in installments, because they couldn’t afford to get it fixed. When I explained that we would do the work for free, she started crying, he started crying and I started tearing up also. They absolutely loved the final outcome.

Clever Wheelchair Ramp for Local Homeowner

April 25th, 2023

We have had the great folks from Olin/Winchester helping out the past couple of days on some projects. They were amazing to work with, when I wanted to quit – they wanted to keep working.

Yard work, new stairs, and a wheelchair ramp

We also installed new bathroom flooring.

We had a great turnout and amazing helpers today on another veteran’s project. We removed the doors and windows that were leaking and installed new insulation, sheathing, house wrap and siding on the outside and new drywall on the inside. We also installed a fence with a gate. We have to go back and do some final taping and sanding, but it turned out great. Tremendous thanks to the folks at Scott Air Force Base and Gateway Family Church.

Bringing a Veteran's Home Up to Code

February 21st, 2023
Today we finished up a veteran’s home that had multiple issues that we have been working on it for the last couple of months. We brought the hot water heater up to code, replaced the dining room and kitchen light, fixed the electrical issues in the living room, fixed the toilet and replaced the water damaged sub-floor in the kitchen. He’s been having medical issues and he just wants to go home. Now he’ll be a little more comfortable and safer. Many thanks to Randy and Jan.

Difficult Project With A Happy Ending

February 19th, 2023
We did a project this weekend where a lot of stuff went wrong. We started out with a soft spot on the kitchen floor. When we saw that it had been leaking under the sink, we knew that we had to replace the sink base cabinet as well as some of the sub-floor. When we started to get into it, we discovered that the plumbing wasn’t hooked up to anything! All of the water from the sink was going into the crawlspace. So, we fixed that, fixed the sub-floor, installed a new sink base cabinet (the homeowner is going to paint the others white to match) and installed new flooring. It was a mess, but it turned out great.

Help from Home Depot to complete deck steps and railing project

Another homeowner needed to have her broken locks replaced.

Yard Cleanup and Deck Replacement cont.

October 16th, 2021

We were back today at the house that we cleaned up the yard a week or so ago. Now that we could see the rotten deck boards, we started replacing them. The problem that we ran into was that the infrastructure was rotten too, so we ended up rebuilding it in spots also. We tore out some old steps and rebuilt them today also. The homeowner is so happy.

Labor Day Weekend Projects

September 7th, 2021

We did a few projects on Labor Day weekend…just finished them up this morning. The porch was falling apart to where the homeowner could not receive mail or go in and out the front door.

These projects turned out great. Thanks to Charles for your help.

So many people to thank…we just finished up a wheelchair ramp in Alton for a disabled Vietnam Veteran.

We had a good start to the weekend…we tore out ceramic tile that was breaking and coming loose and installed new waterproof, vinyl flooring in a single mom’s bathroom today. Thanks to Lowe’s for the funding and thanks to Ricky for all of your hard work.

These quick projects make a world of difference to homeowners. A single mom’s kids were getting their feet pinched and cut by the porcelain tile breaking up, so we took care of that for her.

May 30th, 2021

It is fitting that we finished up a project for a disabled veteran today – Memorial Day weekend. We added insulation to her attic and built two wing walls for safety.

Power Washing A Porch

May 20th, 2021

We hate to hear of seniors being taken advantage of, so we had to step in and help. It’s not something that we normally do, but she is a previous homeowner who we have helped in the past. Someone was going to charge an 85 year old widow $1,500 to power wash and paint her front porch. Seriously? Stop taking advantage of our seniors. Here’s the pics after power washing, scraping and applying our first coat of paint (non-skid, of course).

“Thank you, Rebuilding Together Southwest Illinois, for helping our seniors! Bravo!”

Ramp and Soffits

May 1st, 2021

Here’s another project that we’ve been working on for Rebuilding Month. We got rained out on Saturday, but we made pretty good time on Sunday and Monday. The homeowner is 99 years young and still getting around pretty good (for her age).
Squirrels had gotten into the soffit of the homeowner’s house and was making a mess of things. I’m so thankful for the many neighbors and folks that came out from Scott Air Force Base to help out last week and today.
What I like about Rebuilding Together is you are able to meet the nicest folks. A bunch came out from Scott Air Force Base on Sunday to help out with a bunch of smaller projects around the house – cleaning up the brush, painting the windows, painting the shed, hanging a new porch light, building the ramp.

Bathroom Renovation

April 19th, 2021

During April – which is Rebuilding Month – we’ve been working on a bathroom project for a homeowner. The toilet was leaking, so we had to replace the subfloor and flooring, as well as install a new vanity, mirror, lights and a new tub surround. As you can see by the pictures, the wall behind the old tub surround was pretty bad shape, so we had to replace the drywall behind there before we could install the new tub surround. It was a big job that turned out really nice.

Wheelchair ramp, part 2. With her new wheelchair ramp installed [outside] the homeowner now has a way to get onto her enclosed porch, but there was a big step from her porch to inside her home.

Rotting Roof Patch Job

June 18th, 2022

We got a bid for a roof patch job because we couldn’t get to the job in a timely manner. The bid was $4,350.00 from a reputable roofing company. I’m all for folks making money, but that was a little ridiculous.

It cost us $163.32 in materials to tear out the rotten wood and replacing it, install new flashing, drip edge, felt paper, shingles, soffit and fascia. Next step is to tear out, patch and finish the damaged drywall.

Her caretaker asked if we could help remove the transition threshold into her bathroom so that she could get into the bathroom easier. Of course, we said yes.

“Always helping make life better and people happy.”

Small Projects with a Big Impact

August 9th, 2022
We finished up a couple of smaller projects today. One was installing a storm door for a recently widowed senior.
The other project was to help a senior hook up a vent to her dryer. The way it was vented was incorrect and causing a real mess in her laundry room as well as a fire hazard. Crawling through a 14″ x 18″ access panel to get to the venting wasn’t easy (or fun), but it’s going to make a world of a difference.
