House Progress pt 3


Caleb and Corrie came in last weekend. Their visit proved most helpful; we were able to pretty much get all the demo done. My plan was to haul off all the debris this week and by the end of next week have the bathrooms framed out; well, everyone in the family has traded a cold around and its hindered that plan. But with a lot of work I could still make it happen; assuming no more interruptions. Heres a look at where I’m at.

Today I created a Society6 account for the ministry. is a website where artists post their artwork and encourage people to go purchase it on a product of their choice. The website prints the artwork onto whatever product the buyer chooses and ships it to them. With each purchase, the artist is given a percentage of the sale. I’ve researched quite a bit and found Society6 to have some of the highest quality merchandise available compared to similar companies offering the same services. Here’s a list of the products they have to offer.

Art Prints – various sizes
Framed Art Prints – various sizes
Canvas Prints – various sizes
T-Shirts – wide variety of styles and colors
Hoodies – pullovers and zip-ups
Wall Clocks

Needs list for the House


Here is what we have ahead of us concerning the house.

1. Level the floor in the Living Room. Someone had previously installed a floor heater previously and in doing so, cut through the floor joists in the Living Room. The house sags a bit towards this weakened area. We need to jack the house up and repair or add support to the joists.
– Needs – (1-2) 30 Ton Jacks? Not entirely sure, would love some advice.

2. Repair section of Foundation Wall. There is a section of the foundation wall (about 4-5ft) that needs to be built back up. The large limestone rocks appear to all be there; but need to be put back in place and refortified.
**The damage does NOT appear to be causing any structural concerns**
– Needs – perhaps hire a professional crew?

3. Wiring, Plumbing, and Duct work. Pretty much the whole house needs to be rewired. New plumbing will be needed to add a master bathroom and laundry room upstairs. Someone had previously built a closet to house the gas furnace and hot water heater. Unfortunately this closet takes up 1/3 of what will be the kitchen. We can use the closet as a pantry but the furnace and hot water heater need to be moved into the root cellar or perhaps the attic. Duct work will need to be run throughout.
– Needs – at least 1 Tub/shower, at least 1 toilet. Duct work material (I would like to run the ductwork in the crawl space and install floor vents – and Lord willing, if we’re able to get a 2nd gas furnace, to run duct work in attic and install ceiling vents for upstairs). The rest is to be determined. Still need to plan out where outlets, plumbing fixtures, and floor/ceiling vents need to go.

4. Insulation and Drywall.

5. Install Kitchen cabinets.

6. Build an awning to re-route water from getting into root cellar.

At this point the house should be livable and we could move in.

7. Vinyl siding. About 1/2 of the West side of the house is missing Vinyl Siding.

8. Shingles. A small amount (I believe) of shingle work needs to be done on the South side of the roof.


First Post of the Year!!


Praise the Lord!

2016 is here and its an exciting time to be serving the Lord! Im going to cut to the chase and give a big (but brief) overview of what all has been happening with the ministry here in Wilsey.

We arrived here on the last weekend in August of 2015. Priority #1 since then has been figuring out a place to live. The Lord has provided a house for us, however it is not in a livable condition right now. It has probably sat empty for at least 10 years and needs A LOT of work before we can get in. In the meantime, we have built an apartment in our main building – its 399 sqft. so we’re learning to love each other more than ever before. (we’re ALWAYS in each others’ way). Joey Orebaugh has been a huge help in getting us nestled in for the winter.

If you are interested in seeing a “needs” for getting the house livable I will post that separately.

I drove the family to North Carolina for Thanksgiving. Megan and the kids ended up staying there until Dec. 30th to soak up as much family time with the grandparents as possible. I drove back to Wilsey with my dad and uncle shortly after Thanksgiving and brought a bunch of our stuff from NC (four-wheeler, winter clothes, furniture, and some tools). We arrived back in Wilsey on Dec. 31st and spent New Year’s eve snuggled up in bed!

So far I’m enjoying the weather; I prefer cold weather. While in NC over Thanksgiving there was a bad ice storm that came through Wilsey. A few trees and lots of branches came down but no damage to anyone’s home that I’m aware of. Then we missed the first snow of the winter while in NC for Christmas. There is still residual snow and ice left over but no snow since. The average temperature the past week or so has been about 30 (down to about 18 at night). Staying warm in our apartment has been a bit of a challenge. I have purchased a heater for the room but am a bit too chicken to tap into the gas line in the basement; never done that before. We have space heaters running in the room to keep warm for now.

Here is what we’ve been able to accomplish thus far:

1. Met all city compliances for all properties. Mostly all yard work.

2. Received our Incorporation documents!!! Woot woot, that’s right! HIS CHURCH – FELLOWSHIP OF WILSEY is official. Weird.

3. Gutted out the house we plan to move into. This involved busting plaster off the walls, carefully removing EVERY piece of Lath from the walls (Megan wants to reuse it for decorations), and clearing all the old insulation out of the walls.

4. Built one apartment in the Loft of the main building. My vision is to build two apartments in the loft area. These will serve as dorms for the girls that come for this summer (and will be the future dorm rooms for girls that are attending the School of Ministry).

5. Hooked up hot water in the kitchen. I’ve learned that I DO NOT like plumbing.

6. Installed a washer and dryer in the girls’ shower room. We were spending a lot of money going back and forth to the laundry mat every week.

We’re looking forward to seeing what the Lord is going to do this year! Our vision for 2016 is as follows:

1. Begin holding weekly services for teenagers. Currently our building needs a lot of interior cosmetic repair before I would invite anyone over to worship with us. Plus we have nowhere to put our furniture and clothes and … “stuff” until we are able to move into our house. Over the past 15 years if I’ve learned anything, it’s that teenagers could care less about the way a place looks, as long as they’ve got somewhere to hang out and fellowship. So our plan is to open our doors for them…and any adult who doesn’t mind the massive amount of clutter.

2. Move into our house! Tiny houses are becoming the new fad…yeah, not for me. 399 sqft with 3 kids and 3 dogs… no thanks.

3. Finish the School of Ministry Bible Curriculum. We have finished making the workbooks and have them in .pdf form. We still need to get the audio from tape to .mp3.

4. Build our Aquaponics System and Greenhouse(s). The Lord has provided a 14ft diameter / 4ft deep pool to raise fish in. We plan to build greenhouses and grow food using the fish water to fertilize the plants and the plants to filter the fish water.

5. Open the Wilsey Cafe. If the Lord will allow it, I’d like to see the Wilsey Cafe up and running perhaps by the end of the year. This might be able to provide a little bit of income for the ministry. We will use the food grown in the greenhouses to help supply the Cafe with fresh ingredients.

We covet your prayers for this upcoming year and long to see the Lord move in powerful ways for His Glory!
