First Assignment "Demolition"
The first home I worked on was a demolition assignment.
The house had not been worked on much in two years. We went through personal belongings, met our home owner’s daughters, cried with them, and removed everything from the house.
In hot, humid, rainy weather, with no running water and no electricity at our site, we cleaned that place out entirely. There was nothing left of it except for the brick exterior and the framing. It took our mini-crew of 5 volunteers, only three days to accomplish the clean-out.
After that, we were reassigned to a drywall team at another home.
