There's a New Inspector in Town
Project HOPE is fast approaching and the site is being prepared for the build. Following in his father Johnny's footsteps, Luke Nooren paid a visit to HOPE to make sure the foundation was ready to go for the build. (Luke’s dad Johnny was a local area building inspector who passed away from T-Cell Lymphoma last summer).Great Job Luke, the foundation looks AWESOME!

Not wanting her big brother to have all the fun baby sister Aleida also had a chance to get a very safe and personal view of HOPE from Denis.
Mom Angela says that Luke and Aleida call the home HOPE as though she was a person. With all the love being put into this project, we're sure that HOPE will be very friendly and welcoming to whoever is fortunate enough to call her home.
Speaking of the Foundation: A new type of Sump Pit!
This Sump pit is designed to be installed outside of the basement space. Rather than collecting sub-surface water inside the home, this system is designed to collect the water from outside the foundation wall and keep it outside of the home.
