We're building a house for a particular family, whom we'll meet on Friday. Here's a photo of Krista, our project host, describing two models of the home. Ours will be made up of 14 panels (4 panels by 3 panels), constructed from two by fours, with a kind of pre-fab cement siding. This morning, one group began making these panels, right at our project site. We approached timidly and awkwardly - here's my first nail :( -- But by the end of the morning, hammers were singing merrily and we'd completed 6 panels. Later, another group delivered the panels to the site, to begin construction.
