habitat house re-visited

In May, my work group helped build a Habitat for Humanity house in Barberton. By coincidence, it is the same home that my Thivent chapter is sponsoring. I returned to the house on Saturday for one of its last work days.

It was finish carpentry day. I told Tom, the foremen, to treat me like an unskilled laborer and give me the easy tasks. I ended up cutting and fitting all the closet and pantry shelves. I also built the attic entry panels for the house, utility room and garage. I finished the day caulking the nail holes and spaces in the woodwork in the bedrooms.

It was a productive day. I enjoyed myself. I got home aching from the day of labor. I can only imagine what shape I would be in doing this 6 months ago 50 pounds heavier. There is only one more Thrivent work day. The rest of the woodwork and kitchen and bathroom cabinets will be installed. after that, Habitat will use other volunteer sources for the little bit of remaining work.
