Habitat Part Deux

Today, I had the opportunity to spend the entire day at our Habitat build. It was great. The home-owner-to-be was there again today (Habitat requires sweat equity, and she is only 12 hours away from meeting her commitment). I discussed briefly tonight with Beth, and we are going to go to the dedication on October 11th.

Today, I had the chance to learn how to install faux tile floors (not ceramic tile, but the 1/8" sticky type, but we also put down the same paste that is used for ceramic tiles), to do door trim, and installation of counter-tops and a new sink. We also connected the water and electric for the dishwasher, and installed the range hood and connected the electric. I also installed the trim around the attic access hole to make it blend in (it was very rough before I started).

It has been such a fun and educational experience to really get involved this year with Habitat. As each year goes by, I will ensure that I can devote more and more time. It is a great cause for a great charity, and a deserving home-owner-to-be :o)


  1. I think it will be neat to go to a dedication. Gee, do you think I'll cry?



  2. Hi Ken,

    Thanks for the link!! You're bookmarked, and I'll send you my blogspot soon!!


  3. Hi Ken,
    What a great thing Habitat is...and to be at the dedication will be so moving & rewarding.How many people typically are there building, and are you assigned to a certain place or just show up? Bless you for your service...

    Pooh Hugs,

  4. Good job Ken. Kudos to you.

  5. Ken,
    What a wonderful thing Habitat is, and for you deciding to be a part of it. My wife and I have been discussing doing that, or something similar! Right now I my time is mostly spent with my daughter. I will look into it to see how to get started.

    Blessed Be- Wes

  6. I'm not sure who this comment is going to, blogspot still has me baffled. Someone suggested that we could use the name JLand. I don't know. Maybe it's best to leave by-gones gone. We are the same tribe but at a new watering hole. I am trying to set up who I follow, but why it won't let me insert my photo is a mystery. DB

  7. You know, when we do things like this we actually get more out of it than the recipients do. Good on ya!


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
