Hung’s Dedication

On October 9, Project Rehab finally dedicated the house they have been building for Hung and his family on Crawford Street. Hung, his wife, and their three young children are very excited to be moving in. The best thing about it is seeing the work Hung has been doing in the few short weeks since he has moved in. He’s added gates at the stairs, created a brick patio and storage area below the house, built shelving for plants on the porch, and added a shed roof over part of the back roof.

Sadly for me, I’ve never been happy with my photographs of the house, but here are a few okay ones that I took at the dedication:

Zack, a Hands On AmeriCorps member, has been working on this house with Project Rehab since nearly the beginning:

The space under an elevated house becomes usable. In this case, Project Rehab didn’t extend the driveway under the house, but perhaps the homeowner will choose to. His do-it-yourself additions already include this brick-paved storage space:
