Rebuilding Together...


the warehouse...

the trucks come in empty...

and leave full...

Rocky made sure no one took anything from the trucks...

my first concrete pour...








This week I'm out in Sacramento, CA working with Rebuilding Together. They are a non-profit organization that rehabs homes for low income homeowners. The actual 'rebuild' day is Sat when 19 homes through out a neighborhood get lots love. The day involves over 1,000 volunteers, 6 months of planning, many amazing donations from sponsors, and a ton of hard work. A few homes involve more extensive repairs that require the house captains to start in advance. These are a few images from my first outing in the area. I participated in a work week, a few years ago, in New Orleans after the hurricanes and it was an amazing experience. I can't wait to see all the magic happen on Saturday.
