My name is Ian and this is my Eagle Project details. The refinishing of the underside of the roof structure and a building overhang at Holy Cross Lutheran Church will involve removing of rotting wood, patching, priming and painting. Left unchecked, the church could lose the beams which would require complete replacement of the structures. I will be working with the real estate committee of the church to determine paint color and the angle for the cutting of the beams. I will be asking for volunteers from troop 924 and Holy Cross Lutheran Church. To raise funds for this project, a donation box will be placed at Holy Cross Lutheran Church and the church is willing to donate money to the project if needed. I will also be asking for donations from local business and to borrow equipment from volunteers “ladders, saws, gloves, ect.”
For safety, all the volunteers working on the project will wear safety glasses and gloves (latex/leather). Also earplugs and dusk masks will be necessary for those sanding and cutting. I will be supervising safety for all aspects of the project. I will have two adults cutting the ends of the beams off; they will have experience in cutting with power tools. We will also be using a power sprayer for prepping the area. For the hard to reach places to sanding/ paint, the volunteers will use ladders and I will get scaffolding to make it safer.

Through out the prep and work days I showed the volunteers the project and explained what the objective was. Then I demonstrated how the safety gear was to be used including, the dusk masks and how they were to be put on and worn while sanding. Also I supervised the volunteers by making sure they were being safe and I answered any questions they had.
