Some of you may remember that last year I posted pics from a Mission Trip (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/33315) that I participated in where we go somewhere and build a church building for a small rural congregation that probably could not afford to have a building such as this built without voluteer help. Well I do this every year during the second week of June. This is actually my fourth year to do this. This year, we went to a very small rural church in Northeast Georgia near the town of Clarksville, GA. This project was a little smaller than previous years, but it also was a very nice project. The weather cooperated nicely and we were able to get the building competely dried in for them and almost finished the metal roof and siding. We also were able to complete the electrical rough in. It was nice for us, because, as the framing crew, we don’t often get to see a project this close to completion. Also, sincce the project was a bit smaller than usual, we were able to go at a little bit more leisurelly pace than usual. Anyway, here are som pics of the project this year. I know some of you have posted about volunteer work that you do and I encourage any of you who are able to do so. The same group that I work with is going to be building some homes in conjuction with Habitat for Humanity to replace homes that were destroyed during the recent tornados here in Alabama. I’m sure I will be posting pics of those later.
