Nearly 30 women (and a few good men) from the local community joined habitat staff at the first Winter Women Build on December 4th & 5th in Hanford. Construction staff took time to demonstrate the skills needed for each task and make sure that the volunteers were comfortable with the tools and the tasks for the day.
Teams tackled building a fence while others hung drywall and painted the eves on the house exterior. There was even a lesson on how to use a circular saw!
Women Build is designed to take women out of their comfort zone and give them the opportunity to learn new construction skills that they can then use at home for their own projects.
