    Topping off Party!

    Today was the day of celebration! Today we celebrated finishing all the structure with a lunch party on site. Carmen and her two daughters brought food to barbecue and Hiroko brought homemade sushi and breakfast burritos. It was nice to sit and have a civilized lunch on site with our project in the background.

    After our bellies were full we did a walk through presentation in the house to the funding company, Utah Navajo Trust Fund (UNTF), in order to walk them through our sweat equity process and design specifically for Carmen Dee. There was a nice conversation and great feedback from some seasoned construction professionals.

    In addition to this we also interviewed the funding company representative and Carmen. The interview was just general information about the project and what DBB is doing down on the Navajo Nation.

    Around 4pm we packed up the vehicles and spent the night at Chaco Canyon as a way to finish off the week and begin the weekend.
