The window returns material and trim will be brought on site.
The door jambs will be picked up next week.

Volunteers
Many people have come together to keep this project moving forward, many thanks to you all.  Some more people in the finish carpentry area would be helpful.

My thoughts
A huge thank you to all of you for your continued dedication to this worthy project, especially Larry Fernly who comes every day and has made this project his own and Dorothy and Marj who have come weekly since the beginning. Thank you Darren from Muskoka Exteriors.


Editor's note:
I live 430 km away from the build. I am grateful that Emily, the house recipient, takes photos for those of us who are keen to see the progress form afar!

Every house recipient not only is puts in 500 sweat equity hours into their homes, but will have a geared-to-income mortgage at the end of the project, will have ownership of the home, and a place of which they can be proud. ~JennJilks

Many thanks to all the volunteers. The progress has been amazing.
