Just wanted everyone to know, we finished the walls, got the electric hooked up and the pump's running again, and we got some of the rafters up!
Walls, rafters up - door is coming.
Started raining again... but we got some of the exterior panels up!
Here we go!
Stepping it up!
Closing it up!
Good news! We exceeded our goal! Keep in mind, if you were planning on donating, you still can and your gift will go to help another Eagle Scout from Troop 271! Thanks to our matching donor and to all the WONDERFUL and GENEROUS donors who made this possible!
Walls going up!
Walls are up!
Wow! We have a matching donor who will match the next $125 donated! Please DONATE within the next 12 HOURS and your donation is worth DOUBLE!
About $250 left to raise to complete this project! You guys are doing great!! All we need now are materials for the roof! Now's your chance to 'top' your friends by making a donation before THEY do! (Get it? Top... cause it's for a roof... ha...)
The concrete is poured! (Click to see the pictures.) Walls are next, and if we can raise the final $280, we might finish on time! Yeah!
Here it comes!
Just another corner...
We're still short materials to finish the roof! I know you guys are going to work together to help us raise the last $300 to make it happen! Don't assume someone else will do it - you can be the one! The rain delayed us, but we'll try to pour the concrete this morning, cover it, then work around the rain to get the walls up! Then roof, siding, door and we're done!

Getting it done.
OK! We're in the home-stretch! Please help puch us to the top! We still need about $300 to finish! My last purchases will be lumber for the rafters and finishing supplies... we are hoping to have concrete down today, and walls framed up by tomorrow! So exciting!
Sooo close! We've had a bunch of materials donations, so now we only need about $350 to finish! Won't you be the donor to push us over the top?
OK, we've got all the materials to build all our walls, and I just got a donation of a metal door! We should have the walls built this weekend, and pre-paint all the siding! What a day!
Great news! The concrete comes on Monday! This weekend we'll paint the siding and pre-build the walls - keep donating, and we'll buy roofing materials next!
This is the most active this site has ever been! You are making it happen, and I really appreciate the help! For everyone - $5 donations are accepted and appreciated also!
I have 294 friends on Facebook. And, several of you have donated - Thank You! And, if 175 friends donated ONLY $5 each, THAT - combined with the materials donations I just received - would complete this project! Anyone feel like donating $5? That's not a lot...
Big day today! Yesterday finished cleanup, picked up a wood donation, and today we're going out to collect some more. Progress!
Back from Jamboree! Got my concrete form down and passed our first inspection! Now to pour the concrete and start framing!
BTW, I'm working at the National Jamboree right now. I plan to get this finished so I can get to work when I am back, starting July 26th! Please donate as much as you can! I can't do it without you!
OK, guys. Did some math, and with some "value engineering", I only need about $1200 more dollars to finish this. GOT to finish before September 1, since that's when I turn 18 and it's too late. REALLY, I need to finish by August 9, because I go to college Aug 10. HELP!
Getting ready to build our concrete form this weekend... work is progressing! Help me finish the project by donating now!

Well, rockin' camp now. It's not too late to donate, though! We broke ground and dug the footing, and may have the form built this weekend and can pour concrete next week! Thanks to everyone who has helped so far!
Setting up camp!
Wow! We just broke $1000! 33.33% of our goal! 'Eagle Scout here I come!'
32% of our goal! Yay! We should get our drawings today, so we're gonna start building soon! Please take a moment to donate and help this project get completed!
We're still only 30.67% toward our goal - here's hoping we can convince all you folks out there to help us fund this project! We should have the final drawings soon, and should be on our way to starting the build! Click to donate and help out!
Back at school - kidthegreat in his element! Keep up the momentum! Tell your friends to donate - email them the link!

The project's beneficiary will be thrilled to see it completed - and so will I! Thanks to those who've helped already - you're the best!
Hey everyone! Time to get 'crowdfunding'! I need help finishing this project... share this with everyone you know and please help!
My name is Zachary Cuny, I'm a Boy Scout in Troop 271 of Ocean Springs, MS. Thanks to your support, I finished my Eagle Scout Project
, the last requirement I needed to earn my Eagle Scout Rank. I managed the project remotely from Mississippi State, and got it DONE in time!) Thank you guys!
For Eagle Scout, a Scout must "plan, develop, and give leadership to others
in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community". I built a Pump House at Wesley Church in Ocean Springs, MS, to protect their existing water pump from damage, and the church from risk of liability.
Labor was donated by skilled craftsmen
and Boy Scouts
! Some materials were donated, and thanks to the generous supporters of this project, we raised enough money to buy the rest! Also, Boy Scouts from my troop participated to earn service hours and learn valuable construction skills
. THANKS for your HELP!
