PAST 300!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pearls and Dreams

Habitat Update

303.75 hours
out of
needed to build.
147.25 to go

Grades from the boys have accounted for 24 hours
Don has given 15 hours.
The rest ... has been my working. All of them.

The plan was since I was gimped up this month, that Don would actually get in and start working this month ..but he wasn't doing it ..and when they let me know they needed help ... and since I recovered so quickly ... I just went ahead and took it. It may mean that Don won't pick up and help and it will be all me. A one man show the whole way ... oh well. :) It will definitely mean something more to me!

Starting in 2 weeks, I will be working every thursday morning from 9 to 1 pm at the restore as a cashier. So I will be getting our 15 hours minimum in every month ... anything extra we do will be added hours! YES!!!!! Little by little ... we'll get there ..........


  1. If it were me, I would time-share the place according to workhours invested! Or let them do the housekeeping in the finished product to make it up. ;p

    Sweat equity is part of the deal, isn't it?

    Good for you! Keep the faith!


  2. yes, sweat equity is what is part of the deal. You have to do 450 hours of sweat equity before they start buildign your house, then 50 hours on your house (minimum, but you'll put a lot more than that, because you have to be working on the house the whole time it takes to build your house ..so however long it takes to build the house)

    Then your mortgage is an interest free loan, at fair market value for the house, 30 year mortgage.

    So the sweat equity that you're working for is instead of paying interest on the loan.

    time share invested LOL love that ! Only the people who's name is on the title get to work toward sweat equity, they are nice enough to allow the kids grades to count, or my kids would have worked many many hours for sweat equity already ... so they have an excuse.
