If you build it, will they come?

It's been a great last few weeks at the Common Roots house. After many months of vital preparation, we've finally been able to start building the new double-decker porch at 1189-91 South Main St.

A great deal of last Saturday's work involved screwing part of the deck together.

We're always looking for more volunteers to speed up the process at 1189-91 South Main. Click here to sign up or email us here to find out how to participate.

If you're unable to physically help, a donation of any amount is a great help since we have to pay for supplies. Click here to donate.

Check out some photos from Saturday's progress!
