Where there is a will, there is a way!

A group of 22 individuals came all the way from La Canada, CA to West Tallahatchie Habitat for Humanity in Tutwiler, MS to make a difference and build a house for a family in need. They arrived with hammers in hand, high spirits, and a willingness to build.
In one week, October 18-22, they accomplished what takes many volunteer groups 2-3 weeks to do. They framed up an entire 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 1,100 square ft house, pushed, set and nailed trusses on top of the frame and sheeted the house as well as the roof to create a barrier from the outside.
It’s hard work building a house, ask any of the 22 volunteers, but in the end, they would have kept working if it meant staying down in Mississippi and providing service to others.

This is what the slab looked like on Monday at the beginning of the week…

And here it was near completion without the wafer boards on the roof…
End Result
