My sister and her husband are part of a program where along with a group you get to build your own house and those of the group members with a cut on your mortgage to encourage people to move to rural areas of Utah. While we were in town we were able to help with some of the work. It was amazing to see the house that my sister did so much to build herself. I know very little about handy-work so it was fun to see how some of the pieces fit together in home building.
Her next door neighbor will be her sister-in-law’s house. Next to her will be the Payson, Utah LDS temple site. Lucky coincidence!
I helped Amber with some of the rock work on her neighbor’s house. It was much more time consuming than it looks. I work with my hands every day, but I definitely felt out of my element. I also was surprised how prissy I felt. I enjoy camping, hiking, etc, but for whatever reason it bothered me to feel DIRTY with cement. PS can you tell from our backs that we are twins? Which one is me?
It makes me more excited for our own house and thinking of some of the improvements I would like to make. I am excited we will both hopefully be into our first houses in June.
