This client has recently come home from rehab with a brand new wheelchair and is very excited to get it outside, she's been pretty housebound for some time.  The home is across the street from the one we built in Denton some months back, just around the curve from the railroad tracks in East Denton.  Charge up those batteries and we'll see you there, bright and early.  My phone is[masked], but I often don't catch calls on build day.

So if you're interested........ Sign up and we'll see you there!

What will we be doing?
You'll do whatever amount of light construction you're comfortable with. Our primary tool is a drill, either cordless or corded. We use them to screw everything together, and when we're not using screws we're using bolts that need a hole drilled first. The work occasionally calls for a circular saw or other power tools, but if you're not comfortable or familiar with those, you won't be asked to use them.

What should we bring?
It's very useful, but not required, to bring a drill, either corded (with an extension cord) or cordless. Any other woodworking tools you want to use are quite welcome, but we'll have at least one of everything needed at the build site. If you've tender hands you might want to bring gloves . You're welcome to bring something to drink .


What should we wear?
This is light construction work. Dress comfortably for the outdoors, and expect to get dirty and sweaty.

    Thanks to all the folks who showed up to help this lady-she was so very appreciative of your efforts, it makes it all worthwhile, even if it was cold. You are a great bunch and it is my privilege to be part of this team. See you next month.

    Sorry guys. Just woke up at 9:30 to notice that I was no longer on the waiting list. It must have changed after I went to bed. Bummer. Hope it is going well!
