We have a tradition in our group that when we reach the point of moving on to the next house, we have a potluck. Our house was "finished" (there's a basement window that was never delivered and a few shingles that need to be done, really) so we had our THIRD potluck on Saturday.
Our supervisor, Nathan, brings his homemade smoker (that's right, homemade) to the houses and while we're working he smokes in someone's garage (it was ours this time) and it's pretty ridiculous how yummy it is. We had bacon wrapped chicken with
baked smoked potatoes.
On a side note, it's amazing to me to realize how much you really can do/make on your own. For example, Nathan's smoker. He's built several houses for his family already and plans to build another. He is the ultimate do-it-yourselfer. I know Skylar has aspirations to be just like that. He pretty much already is.

Oh and I say that we will fail because, we will. One of the windows is not yet installed, the roof isn't quite done and aside from that, there are always a few things that need to be fixed or changed. It's just how it goes.
Most of the work you'll see from here on out will be contracted work: stucco, dry wall, all that fun stuff.
