Build Day on the Blue Ride

Written by: Mike Weiser, Blue Ride

Today was the Blue Ride’s first build day.  To me, build days are what separates the FCBA from all other bike rides.  With the FCBA being a fundraiser, you not only get to see how the funds you raise are used but you get to be an active participant.

Today we worked with the Inland Northwest Fuller Center. Our group was divided among three projects: a clean-up at Lincoln St, a painting project at Hamilton St, and a painting project at Living Hope Community Church.  The Lincoln St and Hamilton St projects dealt with getting transitional houses ready for occupancy.
I was on the Living Hope project.  We put a second coat of paint on the house on the church’s property and also painted the shed.  Eventually the house will be used for offices for the church and Tiny Home Village; a community of two, twenty tiny houses transforming homeless families into homeowners.  Tiny Home Village is the brainchild of Paster Ian Robertson and is something other communities should copy.
