Building Block Blitz!

Construction Volunteer Update
The proof is in the energy savings!  Click here to read a report by the NAHB Research Center that details all the great improvements you've helped us accomplish for our homebuyers.
We're doing things a bit differently on the site again--we like to keep you all on your toes!--so PLEASE carefully read your e-mails and follow any special instructions you might receive before your build.  Most importantly, we are working on different sites again but we won't all meet at the same place in the morning. 
CLICK HERE to find out when YOU can get onsite and help build it!  Facebook is the best way to be one of the first to know what's happening on the site or in the office.
