$50,000 Grant Given For Butte Fire Rebuilding Efforts...Contractors & Funds Needed For 80 Homes

San Andreas, CA...A $50,000 grant from the California Endowment was given to Calaveras Recovers recently through the Amador Community Foundation, which is the fiscal sponsor of the local group dedicated to recovery from the Butte Fire. In April, concrete foundations were poured for the first two homes being built by Calaveras Recovers for the uninsured survivors of last year’s Butte Fire. Licensed general building contractors and specialty contractors such as plumbing, electrical, sheet rock, roofing and painting contractors are encouraged to join up with Calaveras Recovers, by attending a meeting such as next Monday, May 2, 2016 at the LDS Church in San Andreas.

An estimated 80 homes are needed to be built for the uninsured. Monetary donations can be made directly on the group’s website, www.CalaverasRecovers.org. Donations of time or materials may be offered via email to info@CalaverasRecovers.org. Public meetings for all groups working on recovery from the Butte Fire are always held the first Monday of the month at 9 a.m. at the Church of Latter Day Saints in San Andreas.

WHO WE ARE
Calaveras Recovers is the Long-Term Recovery Team composed of local leaders and volunteers recognized by federal, state and county agencies as the primary resource to assist homeowners who either could not afford or could not acquire insurance in a high risk area. By partnering with local non-profit organizations, businesses, faith-based groups and others we will assist in providing resources to rebuild homes and lives.

OUR MISSION
Calaveras Recovers is the post-disaster coordination of resources to provide support and guidance to those individuals and families devastated by the Butte Fire regional disaster, whose recovery needs are not met by insurance or government aid programs.

      Cheap labor building cheaper stick homes instead of using the Endura Block System with Fire Resistant materials presented to them that are proven to be about the same costs, bullet proof, better heat and cooling rated and hold their value longer than any stick home ever will.

      Agree that foundation wall looks like gloop. I would be ashamed to be on that crew. That is just sloppy work unless they are going to be covering it up with dirt or a facade facing but either way it looks gloopy and if a county inspector signed that off they should be fired.

      Question is how much did that cost those who donated their money for quality work to be done and not this mess?

          All the workers on these first two homes are volunteers and most of them are members of the Mennonite Church. The goal is to have all volunteer labor for any home built since there is not money available to pay for workers

        The County Inspector looks at the forms,steel placement, footing depths, minimum wall thickness, soil stability along with other structural elements prior to the placement of the concrete. If all minimum requirements are achieved during a forms and steel inspection the concrete is allowed to be placed. It is not the responsibility of the inspector to be present during the placement of residential concrete for quality control. This does not mean deficiencies related the structural nature after the placement of the concrete is immune from inspections and corrections by the inspector during subsequent site inspections, notwithstanding cosmetics.

It never ceases to amaze me how some of the Pine Tree readers can post negative comments on positive efforts and accomplishments that others in the community have made. Regarding the quality of the foundation, unless you have pulled a straight line and put a level on the top of the foundation walls, keep your negative comments to yourself. What you are looking at is a foundation that just had the forms stripped. Follow up work will clean out the concrete “ooze”. What is important is that the foundation is straight, level, and has the proper reinforcement installed. This work has been done by some amazing folks who have donated their time and skills to our neighbors. We should show nothing but gratitude to these folks.
Regarding the claims about the Edura Block System; if those claims were true, we would see all construction based on that system. The truth is that alternate systems come with their own unique challenges and costs. I have seen alternate construction methods come and go. Stick framing prevails as it has proven to be the most cost efficient method we have been able to come up with. If a truly superior construction method was available, I would design all my projects that way.
