Hole Hostel Septic & Renovation

BENEFITING:

Helen Macdermott

THE STORY:

The Hostel Needs a New Septic.....mandated by the State of Virginia. We Also Plan to Give the Bunkhouse a New Shower & Flush Toilet.

Why a New SEPTIC SYSTEM?

Because the Health Inspector said we had to!! We have no choice. Whether we get funding or not.. we have to put a new septic in place in order to continue running the hostel.


HOW MUCH:

So far, we have spent $1200 on a soil scientist & permits. The contractor will cost around $3000+ and the materials for the Septic will cost $10,000. The total comes to around $14,000+.

This does not include reseeding, re-graveling, and renovations/addition for the new shower/restroom facility. In materials alone, this will come to several thousand dollars ($3000-$4000). This won't include Michael and my man power.

Total: $17,200+

What is EXCITING:

This is where the new shower facility will come into place. The State of Virginia/County of Giles has asked that we tie the outdoor shower facility into the system. So, we are making the most of things and planning to build a new shower facility. It will have a flush toilet, changing area, large shower stall, and sink. It's kind of exciting for the hikers.. if you think about it.

WHEN:

This month. Late August the Contractor will begin digging and by mid September work on the new shower facility will begin.

WHERE will ALL FUNDING GO??

First and foremost, funding will go towards the expenses of the Septic System. If we raise more money than the septic requires ($13,200), the remaining will go towards reseeding the yard, re-graveling the drive way, and rebuilding the shower ($3000-$4000). As well as much needed renovations on the bunkhouse - The total project will be closer to $17,000 dollars, if not more.
