Our extra project – The Dream House

Spread the love

extra projectThis house is right next door to the one we are already building.  As you can see the wall are made out of old garage doors that the elderly lady had saved for her entire life!  When we arrived to start building for her neighbor, all that was one her property were the old garage doors, a leveled lot, and a small 7′ X 4′ shack where she currently lived.While on our worksite, one of our participants was moved to give some additional money to pour a concrete pad and put a roof on this neighbors house as well.  We grabbed a couple of pails of paint (her favorite color) and painted it for her too.  Everyone worked extra hard to make all this happen in a span of five building days!I am personally not convinced that she would have ever in her life time, been able to finish her dream home.  Words could not express the ladies thankfulness for the generosity shown to her.
