What a difference a day makes. On Saturday, April 8th, A. R. Chesson Construction’s Elizabeth City office volunteered to transform a concrete slab foundation at 608 Dobbs St, Hertford, NC to a framed house in one day.
The future residents are a couple with disabilities. One is a veteran who lost his sight very suddenly due to a bacterial infection. The other requires the use of a wheelchair. The floor plan was designed by Mitchell Ayers, current ARCC IT Manger and former architectural project manager, using universal design principles to allow full accessibility for the future disabled residents.
The house construction consisted of panelized wall framing and engineered wood trusses. Brad May, ARCC Site Superintendent, provided oversight and direction to all of the workers on site.
ARCC appreciated Edenton United Methodist Church providing lunch for all of the workers.
