Women Build Work Day

What is it like to be on site working with my team on the Flower City Habitat for Humanity(FCHH)  Women Build house?

The Calico Hammers is my team and our group goal is to raise $6,000 to help build this house.   My team's first work day this year was 5/28/13.  Safety is the first thing covered in the orientation, by Erwin.  We worked under the supervision of the FCHH supervisor, Erwin. Our task for the day was to finish putting up the metal forms for the basement wall and to secure the top of the wall for the pouring of the walls.

Seemed like a daunting task when we arrived.

Here I am bending the rebar for the corner with Sally.

Here is the group at the end of the day.  I did put on a clean shirt for the photo.  

Forgot to mention it was raining most of the day.  It did not stop us and we finished the walls.

Yes, we finished the walls and the pour happened the next day.  Hope this shows how much fun we had.   Your comments and suggestion are always welcome.
