Work on a Habitat house

My dad, as I mentioned in another description is a jack of all trades. He used his powers for good and would often help out by building Habitat for Humanity homes. Even though I do not know half of the stuff he does, I still think that I can donate my time to this worthy cause. I hope to get a lot out of it to thought.

I want to learn how to build and frame a home and do constructional repairs. What is really cool is that within two days after adding this item to my list, my buddy Michael Knotts invited me to go to the Bahamas with him over the summer and build and repair hurricane ravaged homes with Bahamas Methodist Habitat down there. So the wheels are set in motion for this one. Hammer? Check. Tape Measure? Check. Willingness to do service work for an amazing organization with a smile on my face? Oh yeah, you can definitely put a check next to that.

When I originally created my list, my plan was to mosey on down to a job site for a weekend and put in a couple of hours of work. However, within a few days of publishing my site, my friend Michael Knotts invited me to be part of something much greater. […]
