Construction for this 101st Habitat home is scheduled to start Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016, at 308 Avenue D in Brazoria. This will be the 4th house built this year.

308 Avenue D, Brazoria [1] A tentative schedule of the work planned for each day is at the end of this e-mail. Note, the most work for volunteers is during the first 5-6 days of the build, especially on week days. Towards the end of the build, much of the work is done by contractors. This work is denoted in red and volunteers will not be needed for that work.

BUILD INFORMATION: Sign-in and breakfast are from 7:30-7:45 a.m. each day at the big hospitality tent at the site. Status reports and devotional are from 7:45-8:00 a.m. Work starts about 8:00 a.m. and runs until about 4:00 p.m. However, you can come and go at any time. Breakfast, lunch, water, lemonade and snacks will be provided during the regular work days except as noted in the build schedule at the end of this email.

Any and all volunteers of any skill level are welcome to participate on any of the work days. There will be skill leaders present to direct the work and to show anyone how to do an unfamiliar job. Most tools will be provided, however, you might want to bring your own hammer, tape and/or tool belt if you have them. So, find a job you want to do or take advantage of on-the-job training, and come help. Please note that there are age restrictions for safety reasons as follows:

* No one under 16 can be on an active construction site.

* No one under 18 is allowed to do any hazardous activities such as the use of power tools, roofing or working from a height of 6′ or more.

* Those 14-15 can do painting when there is no active construction work going on at the site, but should be supervised by an adult.

* Volunteers under 16 years old can help with landscape work if accompanied by an adult.

* All volunteers must have a signed waiver to work. Waivers for minors must be signed by parents/guardians and notarized.

If you have not done so in the last year, adults will also need to complete a waiver before your first day of work. All this can be done before you volunteer using the attached document or on the first day you volunteer. Hope to see you at the build.
