Habitat at the Williams Home

Pam and I volunteered again for a home remodeling project in Prince William County. We arrived at 8:00 on Saturday morning, met some others and started working.

The assignment for the day was to replace five windows. The new windows were double paned vinyl. When done properly, the old window and casing can be removed and the new window fits right in.
To make it a bit of a challenge, all the windows we worked on were on the second floor requiring one of the guys on the ladder working with someone in one of the bedrooms upstairs.
There was also some painting that needed to be done on front porch columns that replaced rotting ones.
It was a lot of fun, we learned a lot, and the work went quickly. It helps when you work with people who know what they are doing.
When it was over, we took a group shot and vowed to return another day.
