I had the privilege of volunteering with Habitat for Humanity this week at their Davidson County build.  Sponsored by Greater Nashville Realtors, we worked on a build for a new home owner who was on-site while we worked.  It was fun to see his enthusiasm as he thanked us for coming out and handed out cold water bottles to volunteers. 

The Wilson Group Real Estate Services came out with 2 teams of volunteers.  Some worked on putting all the insulation in the interior walls of the home.  My team was working on installing the exterior siding. 

This is my third year to volunteer and I am always impressed with the skilled volunteers who are helping with the build and teaching each of us with patience!
