Garrison Construction Workday
August 21st, 2009
Garrison Construction became involved with Lori’s house much later and became a huge resource in getting so much accomplished. On a day that the crew normally has off, the whole Garrison Construction crew worked on Lori’s house. In one day, they built the steps and handrails in front, dug the electric line, set the retaining wall, installed the flooring, installed the cabinets, installed the tile in the bathroom, and poured the walkway in front. Later on, many others from Garrison worked on this house through the weeks installing the trim and other work around the house. Thank you to Lowe’s, Herrman Lumber, Dick Replogele, Owens Drywall, Ed’s Electric, Ridout, and Barton’s for their $2,000 gift card that helped so much.
