Camp Summer Cabin Retrofit   
A small, skills oriented team is needed to provide the labor and resources/materials for transforming summer-only buildings for winter use: There are four cabins approx 12x18, and a summer missionary staff quarter which sleeps up to 6 people, which are fitted for summer use, but which could be fitted for winter use, increasing camp’s winter camping capabilities by two dozen bed capacity and providing a better space for summer missionaries. The cabins need to have the outdoor area under each cabin cleared of any debris, any old insulation removed, and new weather proof insulation added, either foam spray or foam board insulation. Once the underside has been insulated, a vapor barrier needs to be installed over the insulation to prevent ground moisture from evaporating up through the floor of the cabin or a trench installed to direct groundwater away from the cabin. The interior ceiling/attic area of the cabins should also be insulated and then covered with sheet ply or sheetrock as needed. The old carpet should be removed, any subfloor decking that needs to be repaired or replaced should be dealt with. New waterproof flooring installed. The cabins are outfitted with standard electrical service. Each cabin needs to have some form of a 120v electric wall heater, with an integrated thermostat, installed, preferably with a fan for air movement. Rough estimates for each cabin retrofit is a maximum of $2000.00, with some coming in much lower due to minimal work needed. Materials can be purchased and delivered or picked up at local home centers. Team should bring personal tools relevant to the job; camp has many tools onsite but not a fully equipped workshop; and/or tool rental is available within minutes of the camp. Team can stay at the camp and be provided meals for $45 per person per night. Transportation to and from the airport can be provided by the camp if needed. Team may also want to consider renting a vehicle if they want to do site seeing at the end of each day.
