We start with just a slab
then get all the walls up
paint the bottom half and then put the roof on
final with all the trim. crazy that this little house can be built in one day with 20 volunteers.
The whole gang including the family we built for. A mother with 2 small children who's husband was murdered last year. They were SO grateful. make the heart warm
Rich helped even the smallest children help out
