i forgot to take 'before' pix, so it doesn't look like we did much, but the construction manager was pretty happy with the amount we got done...

Good for you. Sounds like you've got this whole "housing the world" problem figured out.

Fantastic work, and great pictures. You even put in a zombie sniping vent near the peak of the roof.

Good job.

I am a regular volunteer with habitat. I would encourage people to volunteer with habitat. It is a great way to sharpen and/or get a wide variety of construction skills.

No skill there, just hydrate and stay in the shade as much as possible. That is....if your outside.

one more thing about habitat. the habitat here doesn't do much in the winter. but i still volunteer at the "restore" they are building. i had never heard of these before volunteering for habitat. these "restore" stores sell donated stuff like doors, windows, plumbing supplies and all kinds of furniture and appliances. it's a great place to get stuff cheap. plus if your volunteering there you can get first crack at the stuff in back.

check it out.

a lot of groups out there "talk the talk" about helping people. It's DAMN nice to see a group cowboy up and "walk the walk". Fine work, one and all.

I love working with Habitat for Humanity. I worked at the large NOLA one in Louisiana and the Jacksonville Mississippi.
