Our future home, and the progress thus far...
So this is our future home! They layed the walls a little over a week ago! I know it doesn't look like much, but it doesn't take very long for it to start looking like a home.
We finally started building last Saturday, and according to our supervisor we are going pretty fast! We just put the trusses up today! It has been fun, and also a lot of work! Aaron and I trade off days taking kids and building, and then my mom watches them for a few hours twice a week. This is what we have done so far...
All of this we did just on Saturday. Aaron, Jason, Lisa, Lisa's dad, Josh, and me did the green plate around the foundation walls, while one group did the basement framing, and another group did the porch cap support.
And just barely we just finished putting the trusses on tonight! Hopefully that only means a few more days here at this house(which isn't ours by the way) and then we can move down to Santaquin and start on all of those(which is where we are). All in all we will have built 8 homes! We are hoping to be in by December 1st for that 8 grand! Wish us luck!
This is what we've done so far.
Don't forget to come volunteer for us if you love us! Thanks! Call me or email me for the address! firstname.lastname@example.org
