We are excited to announce the funds have been raised and the building of a home for Viergela and her family has commenced. Enough funds were raised to build a large two room home with a porch and an exterior bathroom. We are thrilled beyond words to begin construction. Below you will see pictures of the clearing of the land and the laying of the foundation. Her home is on a hill so the work is challenging. The views are amazing however and each steps brings Viergela and her children that much closer to a home of their own.
Hauling and pouring fill dirt was hard work on this steep hill. Many hands make light work and the foundation was laid preparing the way for the next phase of construction.
Watching them build a home from the ground up is fascinating. The natural materials pulled from the hillside helped keep costs low.
I can just picture the finished product with Viergela and her family setting up housekeeping with sleeping quarters in one room and living space in the other.
Over the next two weeks the walls will go up, windows and doors will be put in and a roof put on. Check back for more updates as the building progresses on a home of their own. Thank you also to each one who contributed to make this dream a reality.
