Texas Ramp Project

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is a 44' ramp on a mobile home for a client who is a veteran. As I remember, the street is not marked, but is the third right turn after Masch Branch Rd on Highway 380(W University Drive) west of Denton.  Turn into the street JUST BEFORE the Porky's Barbecue place.  We'll see you there!

What will we be doing?
You'll do whatever amount of light construction you're comfortable with. Our primary tool is a drill, either cordless or corded. We use them to screw everything together, and when we're not using screws we're using bolts that need a hole drilled first. The work occasionally calls for a circular saw or other power tools, but if you're not comfortable or familiar with those, you won't be asked to use them.

What should we bring?
It's very useful, but not required, to bring a drill, either corded (with an extension cord) or cordless. Any other woodworking tools you want to use are quite welcome, but we'll have at least one of everything needed at the build site. If you've tender hands you might want to bring gloves . You're welcome to bring something to drink .


What should we wear?
This is light construction work. Dress comfortably for the outdoors, and expect to get dirty and sweaty.

    My battery is dead. I may be running a bit late, but I'll be there before 9 for sure.
    Thanks for the gloves David, I'll try to find some white socks to complete the look!

    I forgot my gloves at a friend's place in Dallas, so if anyone can bring an extra pair, I'd be grateful
