Haiti Demo Assembly

This weekend Haiti's capital was hit with a powerful storm that destroyed thousands of tents, many of which have already been weathered over the last 8 months since the earthquake.

Meanwhile back in Pomona, we've spent hours of careful measuring, cutting, and drilling, and more trips to hardware stores than I can keep track of. Last night four people lifted the third floor onto the frame. Now we can rest at ease this weekend knowing that the frame is tight and secure. What a sense of accomplishment! With 5 days left to ship out the demo to Haiti we still have to assemble the roof and walls, windows and door, and other finishing details. Here is a picture of what it looks like so far.
