Andrew and Amy Lathrop live with their 2 ½ year-old daughter in Oceanside. A Habitat home usually takes up to a year to construct, but the Lathrop’s home was built in five days during the 2011 Home Builders Blitz. During their sweat equity process, they learned new skills about home building and maintenance, including how to use a myriad of power tools, how the plumbing systems work and how to climb – and get down from – “a really tall ladder”. Amy and Andrew have gotten to know the other families in their community - Libby Lake Village, a 20-home Habitat development - and are pleased to know that their children will grow up in such a safe and loving neighborhood. Amy blogged about her homebuilding experience at http://housebuildingmommy.blogspot.com/.
