We worked in a residential area for 3 1/2 days which was really interesting. I was able to stay within 1-2 blocks the entire time and spent most of my working hours nailing boards onto porch ceilings. I am now a master porch-maker! The dad I was working with was SO incredibly patient with me and the other workers and for that I am forever grateful. Thanks to him I now have skills that I can carry with me for a lifetime! The work was definitely tiring, and draining at points but I think we all learned many valuable skills.
This is a church that Extreme Home Makeover built- my group helped to finish the landscaping and mulching since EHM apparently skipped out early ;)
A and I about 1/2 way through-- the lights were an interesting experience- measuring, cutting, measuring and cutting again sometimes...
Almost to the end of the last porch- working with C, a guy from another group who joined us for the day
The end of this porch was the death of me...see that tiny piece on the far right? It took Mr. L and I a good 30-45 minutes to get it and the piece to its left up and in like a puzzle piece. I thought my arms were going to fall off!
I also got to show off my spackling skills- my dad would be so proud!!
