We finished up two weeks at the Tuscaloosa Habitat For Humanity Disaster Recovery Build. It has been another great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here. We met a lot of new people and got to do some fun things at the job site. The work has been pretty much the same as other HFH builds.
The first week we worked on outside trim and siding. This week we have been involved with framing, raising walls and sheathing for the sides and roof. And installing some tornado strong tie-rods and a building a safe room.
While here, we have seen some interesting things:
- A University of Alabama BCS Championship ring -
- Chief Financial Officer for the Los Angeles Angels -
- Safe room -
We had never heard of a safe room before we arrived here in Tuscaloosa. HFH uses a FEMA design for this and is building it in all their new homes.
Some high-wind/tornado/hurricane straps, rods and bolts:
We also made it a point to go see the Paul 'Bear' Bryant Museum -
- University of Georgia -
And somewhat unexpected: we ate at a great Thai Restaurant on campus:
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles ~ until next time...
