Today, September 2, 2017, was a great work day for Mt. Pleasant Habitat.  We had a big, hard working crew and accomplished a lot. Just study the pictures. Great job people.

We are grateful to Atlas Roofing in Daingerfield for their donation of shingles for the roof and to John McDermitt and his roofing crew who will be putting them on, hopefully next week.We will soon be ready for the plumbers, the electrification, and then the fun part of installing insulation.

Everyone is welcome join in the satisfaction of helping a wonderful couple build their home. Money donations needed.

Deck Almost Done

July the 8th and 15th saw a hard working group of men putting the fascia boards and decking  on our current Habitat house.  It took muscle, lots of energy, and sweat, but the deck is almost done.

Nisha Miller led a crew of women welding shovels in shifting mounds of dirt and concrete making the path around the house smother and safer for all the workers. Dayna spent most of the day in a hot trailer organizing tools and supplies. Having this house in the dry is a light at the end of a tunnel.
