Rolling Along on Royal Avenue

 

It’s been one month since the groundbreaking for the Martinez family home on Royal Avenue, and we are almost ready to raise walls! We got a jump start on the build schedule with a generous donation of labor from Dynasty Concrete Company. Even the smallest members of the Martinez family were there to watch the concrete being poured for the foundation:

Last week, volunteers began to work on the site – putting in the mud sill to cover the foundation, and then laying all the floor joists.  By end of this week, the sub-floor will be complete and we will soon raise walls!
