Work continues on 5227 Chartres. The Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development, otherwise known as The Center on Chartres undergoes repairs by the CSED. We replaced termite damaged wood from the cantilevered section of the front porch.
September 28th volunteers from the USGBC's Green Apple Day of Service will be assisting with additional repairs to the porch at The Center.
Volunteers from West Virgina assist Big Jim and I in digging six holes for six new piers at 5227 Chartres. The CSED is thankful for all the help from our volunteers!!! Next step is leveling and loading the pier pads and then building the piers. Final step: lifting the house, finishing the piers and then letting the house back down!
Welcome to the future Sustainable Engagement and Development Center - 5227 Chartres Street - Lower 9th Ward. Big Jim and I took lazer level measurments of the Chartres house to determine how level the house was. Largest difference in measurments was 2 1/2 inches. Not bad!
Big Jim determined that 6 new piers need to be built under the house because of spans over 7 feet. Work is underway with the gracious help of volunteers from West Virgina!
John Taylor works for the CSED as Wetlands Specialist. "Thoughts from A Special Place" will be made of his quotes and photographs about the Bayou.
John has spent most of his life enjoying Bayou Bienvenue hunting, fishing, admiring, interacting, (teaching people) and taking photos of the bayou and the wildlife in and around the triangle
Please stay tuned to this blog to see some of his beautiful work!
