MISSOULA URBAN DEMONSTRATION PROJECT
March 1, 2011

We recycled a old house in Missoula. We ended up getting ripped off by the company we hired who claimed to be recyclers. The bank gave us a dead line and we had no money to finish but had joined the people at mud. We needed to sand floors, finish the landscaping, finish plumbing, puddy the windows,put up 2x4 walls,tape walls, paint,build a porch. Then our only vehicle was hit while stopped at a stop light on Broadway. We cryed. Then we took out the list MUD had and started to see what they had. We got the power washer first and washed down the house and couldn't get the washer back because our friend truck wasnt home so we called and they had another couple who needed it and lived near by,So they arrange for them to pick up at our house.
We pick up all sort of power tools to finish the walls 2x4-sheet rock-
mudding and the works and they looked thing up for us on how to do
things like framing, mudding nailing, orange peel. Some times we showed up when they where not open and they helped us anyway.
We also used the truck share to haul 2x4s, cement mixer, sheetrock
and trees people dug up or wanted to get rid of for our yard. We ended up meeting the dead line the bank gave us for our first house
we have ever owned. We thought we were going to lose the house, the houseing market crashed and I lost my job and my husband job was looking like they were going to cut hours for them and we had
used our saving to do this not wanting to rent anymore. They had ever thing we needed and still do.
