It's a great way to thank those who helped you.
Volunteer work party for a repiping job
EDIT::I have a list of parts. I think a great way to accept donations would be to have a look at the list, choose whatever you want to donate, order from your favorite place (Like FW Webb & SupplyHouse.com!!!!) and then write your name in column B
In order to facilitate ordering, please PM me and I will send you shipping instructions as I'd rather not post that.
I was reading the post from Heating Hell about a bad installhttps://forum.heatinghelp.com/discussion/167670/another-new-install-mess#latest
Appears the contractor left the homeowner with an unsatisfactory install and repiping is needed, but the budget has been exhausted. I thought it would be a great way to help someone in need, and it being the holidays and all...
Any other NE Wallies be interested in getting together to help @MichelleLe1
out with this? Would be a fun way to meet folks on this site that I've interacted with.
To be clear, I've never piped a boiler in my life and don't feel comfortable taking the lead on this other than to help in other ways. I can donate some Big Mouths to the job and maybe leverage my contacts at some supply houses to procure parts etc at a discount. I'm also willing to get my hands dirty onsite. We'd likely need/want an actual contractor and they are most likely very busy. I don't want to take food off their table either.
We could set up a gofundme account if there's interest to help offset some of this for those not able to directly participate. Seems the greatest need is probably manual labor and I bet we can get that in spades.
