more transformation

this last week we had a group come out to work on a new
project for habitat for humanity
this house was foreclosed on several years ago and has set
empty with no care during this time

the house both inside and outside has been neglected and or abused

the outside yard is a mess
the back as i posted last week was overgrown with those awful
paper mulberry
on the dont plant list in the growing green plant list
after cutting down all of them all day long i understand why

so below is the front of the house
neglected neglected

enter these guys
our heroes of the day

this is a group from aci worldwide that has an office in austin
i dont know what they do but if they work as hard as they did
this day on this houses yard then that company will definitely be
a success and has a bright future

this is the back yard near the fence where those awful paper mulberries
were and what they are digging at are those awful stumps from the
trees we cut down and also the roots that pop up out of the ground
and sprout new trees
sort of reminds of a cypress on those bayous except theres not water

kudos to those ax and pick guys as they worked so hard to dig up
those stumps
these guys worked real hard on this stump
they did it in shifts until it was dug up

then another crew attacked the beds which were overgrown
with weeds rocks vines limbs leaves and only one snake
was located
it was gently released safely to another location

this was the end result of their hard work

the area supervisor for texas was there and he and i
thats me on the right in my ogd attire
discussed how hard he and they worked that day to make
this place look better for the new home owner

she was there that day helping with her son and she was truly
amazed that all these people she didnt know was there all day
working so hard just for her to have a place to live

well thats what its all about

thanks again to aci worldwide for their hard work to make this
house look better

yes it does make you have some hope for the future after working
with a crew like this and seeing them volunteering their time and
sweat to help someone

more transformation is coming over the next few weeks
