Pay It Forward: It's HAMMER TIME for Habitat For Humanity!!

Build the WallsPay It Forward:  It's HAMMER TIME for Habitat For Humanity!!

Today is perfection in weather!  Cool with a nice breeze.  God gave us the ideal conditions for Christ's Church at Mason's Build The Walls event this morning!

We had a goal to build FIVE home's walls for Habitat for Humanity.  Jesus was a carpenter, so what better event for our church's outreach program?  And with an estimated 600 people turning out today, with ages from young kids to senior citizens, the goal was EASILY met in less than 4 hours!

Building the WallsThe team from Louisville Kentucky that runs the event has this down to a fine science.  They travel church to church holding the event and have it systematized to train non-carpenters in how to pull the build off with minimal hiccups .  With a cut session on Friday, EVERYTHING was staged for the Saturday assembly crew.  Diagrams are numbered, all the wood is labeled, it's like a finishing a jigsaw puzzle of sorts.Build the Walls

My team was composed of seven builders, and we completed three walls in our allotted time.  One with a door frame, once a complete interior wall, and another for a window frame.  Finish a panel, load it up on the correct truck for the right destination destination, pull another wall order and repeat until the job is done!

So soon there will be Habitat for Humanity teams receiving the walls to build the homes.  Three are destined for Louisiana, one to Indiana, and another for Kentucky.  We hope the new residents enjoy their new homes!

A quote from our friend in North Carolina: "I do not share my stories of paying it forward for recognition. I share them so that others might be inspired to do what they can, when they can, where they can. No more, no less." Tish Lloyd, North Carolina REALTOR®
