Adrienne’s New Job

After getting back to Montrose I finally got a chance to start to settle into our new home and it’s been really nice. Adrienne is also settling into her new job at Habitat For Humanity very well. There are currently two houses under construction in town that Adrienne is now overseeing the construction of. At the end of the first week in town, a group of volunteers came through called Bike And Build and we had to quickly get a grip on what stage the houses were in and come up with enough work to keep 30 young energetic volunteers busy for a day. It was a great day of work and we had people corralled installing blue board insulation on the entire exterior of both homes as well as house wrap. Here are some photos of the houses when we first got here to Montrose as well as some during the first weeks of work.

Toward the end of a good hard day of work for 30 volunteers--all of the blue board is up and most of the house wrap is done.
