One Day to Go!

After months of planning, preparation, and hard work, we are just one day away from the 2012 Hammer with a Heart event.  Through the commitment and dedication of many people and businesses in the Madison community, we have been able to take on a very aggressive goal for the remodel of the residence of Zanne Gray.  Now it is time to get our hands dirty and transform Zanne’s home into a comfortable living environment where she can utilize her home in a way that she could not even imagine before.  Here is what we hope to accomplish on Saturday:

Interior Work

  • Installing kitchen cabinets and countertops
  • Installing the toilet and vanity top in the bathroom
  • Installing grab bars and the shower curtain rod in the bathroom
  • Building a bench to go alongside the bathtub
  • Setting the sinks in the bathroom and kitchen
  • Installing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on the main floor
  • Installing a new light fixture in the downstairs bathroom
  • Replacing the leaky faucet in the downstairs utility sink
  • Removing the doors and shelves around the electrical panel in the basement
  • Cleaning all existing bathrooms along with the rest of the house

Exterior Work

  • Removing brush and debris from the yard
  • Cutting up and removing downed trees and branches
  • Trimming bushes, pruning trees, and raking leaves
  • Repairing damages to the soffit and siding
  • Repairing and installing new railings on the back porch
  • Installing a new screen on the back porch
  • Making the back door to the basement wheelchair accessible
  • Adding new railings to the front entrance ramp
  • Fastening the metal transition to the base of the ramp
  • Landscaping in front of the house

Thank you in advance to all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers, and everyone else who has been involved in this process so far.  A reminder for those of you joining us tomorrow, the day’s work will begin at 8 a.m. and go until mid-afternoon at 5437 Esther Beach Road in Madison (rain or shine).  We are looking forward to tomorrow’s action!  And remember to check the blog after May 5 as well for more photos, links, and updates following Hammer Day.
