Today, as advertised, the Good Works Tour worked (as arranged by our host, David Baldwin) with the Lawrence, KS, branch of Habitat for Humanity, helping to finish up a house.  The GWT spent most of the morning doing some light drywall work, and the afternoon working at the Habitat Re-Store, where Habitat sells materials that would otherwise be destroyed, as a fundraiser for the Habitat projects.  We were fortunate enough to even meet the future owner of the home, who was volunteering on site.

In possibly related news, our next project will be building a house from the ground up using entirely recycled materials and little to no archetechtual experience.  Though, if I’m lucky, the other dudes will let me use the plans for the house I designed in high school.  It has a greenhouse!

Here’s the video from our ranch adventure in Montana.  We work with power tools!  And I get to stand on a roof!  Dangerous!

Special thanks to the Baldwins for being great to us (and making one mean brisket — James & Tim), and to Ms. B for putting us in touch with her Kansas family.

While watching the hurricane coverage, the news did a short spot on rescuing the pets. They showed all the clean pet carriers brought in to help. The 3 of you are also touching God’s creature’s. I’m so proud to say I know you. Have a safe trip back to NJ!
