Building houses

We have been working our butts off at habitat for humanity. We have been mainly working on one project site that includes 4 houses in a row and we have been working on all three of them. One is a demo house that is going to be redone and the other 3 are all being built from the ground up. It's so cool to be able to build something so intricate and do it well. 

I have really enjoyed working with our site supervisors. They like working with lex Kelli and I because we naturally get the work we are doing and can do it without supervision. Everyone else is getting the hang of things as we start to complete each house. 

The toughest part about the program now is we are so close to being done with the whole program. 2 more months until we graduate. I am so ready to go home and start planning our wedding as well as start my life with lex and have time to ourselves. 2 more months!!

Oh, I'm also Vinton. :)

Nebraska Nebraska.

We have been plugging away working with habitat. Working in the warehouses on Tuesday and Wednesdays, sing yard work for another supervisor and working at the houses the rest of the week. We are getting really close to finishing our part with these two houses and will soon be working on more houses building for the framing frenzy coming up. 

We had some excitement at one of the warehouses one day. We started working moving things around and our supervisor went upstairs with a couple teammates. They come down and he tells us I evacuate immediately because he think there are squatters there because they found some homemade booby traps.  The cops come and search the whole building. One cop even brought in his assault rifle... After several hours, they didn't find anyone and let us back in to work again. 

This weekend we get a long weekend so lex and I are enjoying ourselves by relaxing. But unfortunately I got poison ivy all over my face and it has spread all over my body so relaxing is kinda difficult. We spent yesterday morning in the ER getting some steroids. :/ Hopefully it will clear up soon and I can enjoy the rest of our weekend. 

Some fun at an art studio.
