Rolling on the Paint

I’ve been swamped at work lately due to some personnel changes, but I wasn’t about to miss the annual Habitat for Humanity build day. I love getting out of the office; I love volunteering; and I love getting dirty. So the Habitat build is perfect for me.

I first participated in the Habitat build through my work last year. Read about it here.

This year was much different from last year. We awoke to steady rain and cool temperatures. Upon arriving at the build site we discovered a mud bog. The rain had created deep mud at the site which backs onto a field on the outskirts of the city. We ended up moving to a different build site across the city. This site was less muddy and further along so we were able to work inside. Our crew of lovely ladies primed and painted parts of the main floor and upstairs of the fourplex. We were told that they always get the female volunteers to do the painting as they’re much better at it than the males!

By the end of the day I was covered in paint but felt satisfied with the work we accomplished. Once again I had a great experience and look forward to next year!

Here are some photos from the build.
