最终的

家提出的挑战!

This intense challenge is not for everyone. 想象一下:第一天, you arrive to our pre-selected worksite, where you find a block foundation and stacks of lumber. Right away, you’re up against the clock, because by the end of the week (那只是5天), your group will have to turn this pile of materials into a home!

To be successful, you must remain focused, disciplined, determined, and above all, stay on track. 当然, our carpenters will be there to guide and direct you at all times, but the challenge to complete this herculean task rests squarely on your shoulders. Those who make it through to the end win bragging rights, 一些很酷的道具和硬件, 一顿好饭, and a special celebratory prize from one of our sponsors. For those who fail to complete the challenge, no such fanfare awaits. Instead, your photo will be tacked up on HDA’s 伟大的 未完成的 让所有人都看到. 但并不是一切都失去了. 后来, we’ll celebrate the work you have completed and have a meal together to show our thanks as yet another Appalachian family nears homeownership because of you! 

如何开始

我觉得你有这个能力? 好吧,过来证明一下! 以下是你需要的:

你要做什么?

Basically, you’ll be learning how to “dry-in” a home in one week! 这项工作包括:

By the end of the week, you’ll be amazed to see this home – and a family’s dream – taking shape!

挑战的好处是什么?

HDA’s 终极房屋提升挑战 gives you the opportunity to be a part of a drastic transformation – both at the worksite and among your group. As the house takes shape before your eyes, 你的团队将会成长为一个团队, 学会坚持不懈的价值, and gain a strong work ethic — not to mention all of those handy construction skills!

What's the Purpose of the $15,000 Sponsorship?

15美元,000 sponsorship extends our limited resources so that we’re able to serve more East 肯塔基州 families in need of high quality, 持久的, 经济适用房. 以这种方式, the impact of the 家提出的挑战 goes beyond the house you raise; you also play an important role in sustaining our 全球十大外围足球平台排行项目 for the benefit of future low-income homeowners.

你需要施工经验吗?

No. Our carpenters will be onsite at all times to guide you through each phase. Everyone will work together on each phase of the project. (注意: Large volunteer groups will be split up into smaller groups – usually 2 or 3, 根据大小, 并将轮班工作. We do this so that everyone has a job to do at the worksite at all times and to maintain safety during the construction process.) However, 终极房屋提升挑战 is a premium volunteer experience. 它会考验你, so groups that are more skilled may find it more challenging and fulfilling than the projects typically encountered in our traditional volunteer program.

你离开后会发生什么?

After the dry-in, the framing of the house will be inspected according to state regulations. HDA carpenters at the worksite will ensure that all your work is up to code and will pass inspection. Then, certified plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling subcontractors will do their part. 在那之后, the house will be insulated and our carpenters can begin the finish work, 包括石膏板, 地板, 绘画, 内饰, 等. Altogether, it only takes six to eight weeks to complete the house after the dry-in! 一旦家建成, we will send you a video commemorating your experience and a framed photo of the finished home.
