When I joined this class, I didn't really know what to expect. I thought it would be cool to build a house, but I didn't really expect too much out of it. I guess the real reason I signed up for HomeB.A.S.E., is because I want to study architecture in college, so I figured this would be a good start. After we started working on the house, I found that people would come to me, asking me for advice and for ways to fix certain problems, and I was actually able to give them an answer! I had never done anything like this before, but there I was, telling people the best way to achieve their intended goal; the best way to build a house.
In the beginning of all of this, I was just here to build a house, but now I realize how much of an impact we are actually making, and I love it. Although we are doing such a great thing, and I really enjoy working on the house, I think the best thing about this class for me, is the way all of us have united into one, and dedicated ourselves to help make everything turnout positive. We had some problems for awhile, just trying to start the house. The thing is, we are working very hard to get this done, and even though we didn't really get started until after Christmas break, we will have this house finished before graduation. It amazes me, the kinds of things people can accomplish when they set their minds to it. This is definitely one of my best experiences, and it's not just
something I will look back on and remember - from this class, I will walk away with a new set of friends, a greater feeling of accomplishment, and a few new morals to live by, compliments of Mr. Beck. "Do the common things, uncommonly well."
