Greetings Volunteer Wilderness Rangers and friends of the Los Padres Forest Association (LPFA),

We are looking for volunteers to join us for a weekend work party at the VWR cabin on Paradise Road. We recently had new counters installed in the kitchen and have a little work to complete inside. The main objectives of this project will be painting the kitchen cabinets, repairing the exterior siding on the house and garage, and prepping the exterior for paint. We are hoping to get it painted by the end of the weekend as well. There is also some exterior grounds clean up, some garage organization, and cleaning out the interior of the old laundry room. If you can come Friday, join us. Otherwise come Saturday and Sunday.

We need both skilled and unskilled volunteers. If you have trade or skilled experience with any of the following it will be extremely helpful, so please let me know what you can do and what tools that you own (airless paint sprayer, concrete finish tools, etc.)?

Paint prep--siding repairs, sealing, caulking, masking.

Painting- -Kitchen cabinets can be sprayed or hand painted by a skilled painter

Exterior painting and trim will be painted with airless

Concrete Finishing--Need to replace a small section of sidewalk that was cut out for plumbing repairs. Also need to fill some holes in the foundation to keep rodents out.

Plumbing--New water heater install. New bath vanity, counter and sink install.

Finish Carpentry--Siding and exterior trim repairs. Base or ¼ round installation in kitchen and bathroom. Various exterior projects replacing rotted rafter tails and trim as needed for paint.

We will reward all volunteers with a tri tip barbecue dinner on Saturday night, and breakfast burritos on Sunday morning, so please RSVP so that we have an accurate count.
