May 2018 Work Party
May 12 - May 13
This month it’s the Henry’s that could use a common earth love injection into our house and home… while Javier only waited a day after buying his house to get started and have us over it has taken us 3 years to get all of our stuff together enough to finally start on our project!!! As most of you know our house flooded the downstairs 3 weeks after we moved in and then the leaking wall began to structurally fail, we have been on a long journey of ups and downs to wrap our heads around this crap taco, and after 6 months of focused ecological design we are ready to commence the rebuilding process!!! We have taken the last 3 years to grow closer as a family and our foundation is strong enough that we are ready to begin fixing our house… it’s too much to go into but amazing to see how staying positive in our personal lives has opened up so much possibility and solutions to create the house of our dreams and we want you all to be a part of it!
This weekend we will honor the destruction it takes to make creation possible, and also we will be honoring Mothers, the ultimate creators… and destroyers!!! hahaha! We are creating a new entryway (turning window into door) and flow into our house and need to get rid of a deck or two to close off the old entryway and make room for the excavators to come in June to dig out the wall that needs to be rebuilt. We also have some demolition to do in the basement to get ready for the kids to have their own rooms. If we run out of stuff to do there is some rock wall work we could do outside or we can just hang out and enjoy each others company. Work will commence at 9am on May 12th and end at 4pm May 13th… Bring your stuff to camp up here, and we will also have two full size beds open upstairs and plenty of space to crash on the floor (going to have the basement sealed off so we can have a relatively clean place to sleep and eat) … might even have an extra cabin here in Indian Hills people can crash at if needed. If you can’t make the whole weekend, no worries you are welcome to join in at your convenience just let me know when you can make it!
9am May 12th- 4pm May 13th
What to bring:
gloves, eye protection, mask/respirator, demolition tools, sleeping stuff, snacks, and BYOB
We will provide food, shelter, water, and FUN!
Please RSVP ASAP so we know how much food to get (holler if you have special dietary needs) and what to plan for on the work list… let me know if you are a maybe as well as if you plan to attend for a portion of the weekend.
Last month was amazing and proves what a special group of people we have here so let’s keep the momentum going… especially if you haven’t joined in a while, you are always welcome, and we would love to see all of you in our continued journey together as Common Earthlings building community through work, fellowship, and love. On that note love to everyone and hope you can join us in May!
