05-03-08 Today, I was able to travel to Saint Paul to help with a historic home that needed renovation. The woman that lived there had lost her husband two years back and the house was left in the middle of massive renovations. So, Rebuilding decided to help out. It was a huge project that was expected to end today, but looks like it's going to go on for another couple weeks. The owner was really sweet and guys were more than willing to let me use all the power tools. I learned a lot from my experience there: preparation for sheetrock, preparing a house for painting, safety for lead paint, historic preservation. It was all amazing.
