Progress on the Habitat for Humanity Home

The Habitat for Humanity house has made a lot of progress.  This weekend we worked on sheet rocking inside the garage which includes the cutting, nailing, mudding, taping and some trim work.  It is a lot of work!  I have a lot of respect for all the hard construction workers.  I had no idea all that went into putting up walls.
