Hitting the halfway mark...ahead of schedule!

The sign went up at the Pride Build on Day 5 - driving along Villita Cove one can officially call our build the 2007 Pride Build! Thank you to MCC-Austin for their sponsorship of the day, to the generous folks at Magnolia Cafe on Lake Austin Boulevard for donating lunch, and to the 18 volunteers who came at 8 am to tackle a wide spectrum of tasks.

Thanks to the vast experience of project lead Lauren Nichols (one of our 4 extraordinary leads), you no longer have to suffer through my attempts at home building speak. I can now offer accurate terminology for Day 5's accomplishments.

Among the day's feats:

- Finishing panel siding and lap siding
- Putting up the J-channel
- Installing the Soffit
- FInalizing the window and door trim

It was especially exciting to have Marta on the site working with us all day! Marta was able to arrange for her Saturdays to be free for the remainder of the build, and we're honored to have her join us.
