Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity

The Boy and I volunteered for Habitat for Humanity last Saturday through Samsung. 

Upon arrival we found that the house didn't have a covered roof or siding. By the end of the day the house needed to be completely weather proof. All 25 volunteers got straight to work!

We painted. 
We carried heavy ply wood.
We cut and mounted siding.
We installed hurricane storm clips.
We covered the roof and installed tarp. 
All in 102 degree weather.
For 8 hours.

I think I lost over 8 lbs of water weight over the entire course of the day (and darkened 3 shades), but we managed to stay pretty hydrated and had lots of fun! It was a great experience and we're definitely looking forward to more volunteer opportunities on the weekends.
