What a great week it was in Missoula. Okay, so the rain didn’t cooperate much, but everything else was a blast. This was a really big class. We had over 30 people on site and we accomplished a ton. This was a two story structure and right around 1500 SF. It was a challenge to say the least: moving scaffolding, getting bales to the second floor, job site logistics and more all added up to an exciting week. When it was all said and done, we had the downstairs plastered inside and out, and the second story plastered on one exterior wall. That’s a lot, believe me, for one week.

Here’s some feedback from the participants themselves.

“I learned a ton, had fun, and met great people- some of whom will be friends for a long time.” – Dale W.

“Doing a lot of the building myself really makes me feel like I could do my own project. Andrew was great at keeping things going smoothly and keeping people motivated and happy. He was always available for questions and was always willing to help out without having to control the flow of how we worked together. I really appreciated that. Thanks Andrew, you did a great job!”    -Andrea P.
