The Kearney Area Habitat for Humanity Special Events
Ken Mumm's activities so far!
The first day is in the books! 28 holes 3' deep plus the hole for the septic tank. All dug by hand! It's pouring now. Wondering how full the holes will be in the morning ??. That said, feeling good!
Picture 3 above shows the wheelbarrows and shovels.
Today we continued the 44 m trench for the septic system and set some wall posts. (pictures 2 and 5 above)
Today, more hard digging in the trench, but a wall is up! (pictures 1 and 6 above)
The trench is dug. Now we are placing stones below and on top of the perforated pipe. Quit early today because of RAIN! (picture 6 above)

The trench is dug. Now we are placing stones below and on top of the perforated pipe. Quit early today because of RAIN! No internet last night. Yesterday, we filled the trench with LARGE stones and the dirt we had dug out of it. Roof is being started, but our week came to a close. Bittersweet feeling as we didn't want to leave the family who we are really attached to, but felt really good about what we accomplished! (picture 4 below)
Maddie chose Habitat because she feels that is important for everyone to have the chance to have their own home. She also liked that it was a community and homeowner partnership in the sense that they had to work for their new home as well as the community helping to build. Overall she just wanted to help a family with kids have a home.
