... next few rows of cement bricks done. So exciting that the house is really coming along! Left the worksite at 3:15 to walk uptown with Jacqueline, the homeowner. She took us to a gallery where kids can come to be off the street. They offer taekwondo and art lessons. They use cement bags as backing for their art pieces. (We are constantly amazed at how things are used multiple times for various purposes.). The building is 120 years old. They are ...
