Care-A-Vanner Build in Macon - Feb 2016

We joined the Habitat for Humanity Care-A-Vanner group for a two week effort in Macon Georgia.  Other RVers from all over the country signed up online and we arrived this past weekend.
We had our first team meeting and Meet and Greet on Sunday afternoon in the very nice Macon Habitat facility.  On Monday, we met the Construction Manager (Jerry) who went through our Work Plan for the week and gave us a walk through tour of the woodshop and supply area.
The facility includes large warehouse, offices, a training room along with the Habitat Restore.  Very nice facility.

Our six RVs are lined up along one side of the parking lot.
They have water and electric hookups along with a dump station on the other side of the building.

Our work for the week is out in Lynmore Estates.
On Monday we worked on installing some inside insulation and installing two doors.  Dot and Gabe are showing how its done.
Larry and Colleen working on a different area with the insulation.

One thing that naturally happens at these events are the impromptu get-togethers.
We have folks here from South Dakota, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Georgia.

Here is our first 'team photo'.

On Tuesday we split up into two groups and worked on decking at both houses.
Pam and Brian bring over another cut piece of decking.
This local affiliate enjoys a great relationship and support from the community.  Jim (on staff with Habitat) was able to get Texas Roadhouse to provide dinner for us on Tuesday evening.
We tried to get everyone together for a team photo with a couple of the managers at the restaurant.  It was a great meal and a great evening.  Texas Roadhouse employees also volunteer and have an event this week at the Restore in which they are participating.

We are off to a great start and looking forward to our time here in Macon.

Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles.
