On June 12 we started our Habitat House.  13 North Buckhead Volunteers
and North Buckhead friends were joined by about 20 others, including
future hopeful Habitat home owners, students from Georgia State and
Habitat people.  Of course, future homeowner Shanita Silas was there
working on her house, as was House Leader Henry Grimes and his wife,

Volunteers from North Buckhead and friends we recruited included the
following: (Henry, please make copies of the weekly signup sheets so I
can give appropriate credit to all of the volunteers.)

First Day's Photo Chronology

We reported to the Habitat warehouse near Cabbagetown.  Half of our crew
stayed at the warehouse to build all of the interior and exterior wall panels
for the house.  The other half went to the site to build the floor.  We reunited
for lunch and spent the rest of our time at the site.  We accomplished so much
it's hard to believe.
