We went to Salem today to help out at a Habitat house. We were laying cinder blocks to help create a wall that will eventually be part of the basement and it’ll be the support for the front porch. It was a great experience, we learned how to make the cement that is used to hold the cinder blocks in place and by the end we had become pretty good at laying the cinder blocks. We were also cleaning the floor of the home. Here are some pictures of us at work.
Paul at Habitat Salem says:
“On Saturday the Drexel Habitat group came down and spent the day continuing to lay block and mix mortar. They were quick learners and worked very well as a team, much conversation and comradery was evident as the front supporting wall was laid down with excellent height control, using the transit and string line as if they were old hat for them.”
