From faculty advisors Tim Hight and Jim Reites, S.J.

Wednesday, Sep. 30, 2009

All five trucks (three with the house modules and two with tools, household goods, and a couple of bikes for getting around) arrived safely in D.C. The team heaved a huge sigh of relief when the doors were opened and the glass walls were found to be intact!! Students are working hard cleaning the modules, taking numerous trips to Home Depot, repairing a segment of the roof that was damaged in transit, reinstalling the racking system for the PV panels, and completing or improving areas that were not quite right, so overall the house is getting better. They are working late, getting rained on, working well together, and having a blast! Visit the student blog.
