Whew! Yesterday was quite a day. Some folks tell me it was a miracle. Yesterday the Carver Ranches facility was antiquated, cluttered, and – to be blunt – pretty depressing inside. Today it is new, modern, and – thanks to Zimmerman designs and a whole lot of talented painters – downright exciting!
Here are some of the numbers behind the ‘paint-by-numbers’ … (Let me know if I missed anything!)
- 1,675 feet of patch cable installed
- 30 new computers set up
- 10 flat panel displays hung
- 6 Microsoft Kinnect game consoles installed
- 10 wall murals and 30 canvas murals painted
- 230 gallons of paint brushed and rolled (and spilt!)
- 4,226 feet of wood cut and sanded
- 19 picnic tables built and stained
- 30 cubbies / benches built and painted
- 2 basketball courts designed, coated, and painted
- 1,536 bottles of water drunk
- 50 slim jims eaten (sorta)
- 1 bandage applied
Over 250 volunteers and 7 hours later. A brand new home for over 400 local children this summer.
