oh that's cool! I've often wished that I could "help" or participate somehow in one of those builds. (sometimes, they offer the community an opportunity to participate through artwork or handicrafts)

I went 3 days. It is amazing to watch the progress. I didn't get to go for the reveal but have seen pictures of the family at the reveal. The house is beautiful.

they built a home in Charlotte last year.. the neighbors
were less than entertained and several folks had damage to their property during the construction..lost sleep due to noise & lights during non stop construction. .. I guess they all survived in the end.

It rained the first two days so you can imagine the mess. I thought the road was a dirt road! I talked with one neighbor whose yard was a MESS but she said they would come back in and clean and repair so hopefully they will. I heard if the lights/noise were a problem they would put the people up in a motel. The mother is a well loved school teacher who is battling cancer so the neighbor said it was worth the trouble. She has continued to teach so she is a fighter
