This morning, 15 of us went to do Deconstruction on a house for Habitat for Humanity. They do deconstruction and reuse some of the materials on other homes or resell the material for money to use on other homes. It’s hard work, but it’s such a fun time. We took down some walls, tore up flooring, de-nailed wood, bundled wood, cleaned up the site, and other stuff. A very productive day!
To be honest with you, I am in no way a handyman. So it’s fun to get out there and try to do stuff, but it also glaringly shows me my limits. However, it does highlight how we are all needed. If just one of the workers had not shown up, that’s less accomplished.
Also, since I’m not used to hard labor (insert joke of your choice here), there were times to rest. During my constant frequent occasional break I would watch some of the others work together. You could tell they were enjoying working together and to know you’re doing it to help a deserving homeowner get a house that makes it even more fun. So thanks to everyone who worked out there with me. You really worked hard in that heat!
More to come later on…
