|Day 8 - Entrances to the two houses. Looking close to finished on the outside!|
...and the other one which was just slightly farther ahead looked like this:
That's just crazy. And super inspiring. And by tomorrow, Oct. 4th, at 3pm, the keys to these finished homes will be handed over to two very deserving families. As part of the home ownership, the families must volunteer 500 hours of their "sweat equity" to Habitat for Humanity. We heard how members from these two particular families have been on site every day, have been volunteering time at the Habitat Re-Store (a must visit for DIY supplies) and their kids have been earning volunteer hours by getting good grades in school. I am so impressed that these families have taken their destinies into their own hands and sought out a partnership with Habitat for Humanity.
