Habitat for Huffmanity

Today I turned in my work keys. Last Saturday was my last day on the clock for Habitat. Now this thing that has been such a huge part of my life for the last two and a half years is part of my past. It's strange to know that I'm finished with Habitat. And while I'm not so sure what I will do next with my life I'm happy I've had the opportunity to be part of such a great organization.

Last September I reflected on my time in construction (and I've posted about the AmeriCorps Build-a-thon and JCWP as well). Since September I've worked on 4 more houses, bringing the total to 14. Of course we all helped out wherever needed so I've been all around Charlotte working in Habitat homes working on everything from pouring the foundations, to framing, roofing, drywall, and so on. What I'll miss most of all is the excellent group of people I had the privilege of working with.
