I Build…

So what do you do after studying architecture for a few years… Go build things!  For the past few months I have been working in the construction field.  Completing a year of service with a local non-profit repairing subpar housing conditions and building affordable housing solutions for various families.  So far I have worked on 2 repair projects, completed 2 new construction homes, and currently working on 3 more.  During this time I have been able to enhance my handiness, participating in pouring concrete footings, layout, wall framing, setting trusses, wall and roof sheathing, insulating, roof shingling, siding, installing windows, laying tile, drywalling, installing doors and cabinetry, using power tools, lifting very heavy things, and completing punch work! Whew!
