Yesterday we spent several hours working on the bunk house where we're staying for the month of June. We focused most of our efforts on the two bathrooms—putting up sheet rock, mudding seams, sanding, painting and cleaning. Most of us were novices to this type of renovation work. We sweated like crazy in the 99 degree heat. Despite the temperature, I found the manual labor to be rewarding. It was nice to get my hands dirty and to actually accomplish something by the end of the day. I came here expecting and hoping to building something and I'm happy that I could help HERO—even if it was just a day's work—get closer to completing their project.
