A House for Sally Hall & Family: Fry, KY quick build project

2012-09-22 - Fry, Green Co., KY - Photo by Larry Smith.
Inspired by Mary's House
the Cane Valley Christian Church project to provide a new home for Mary McGuffin and her seven children, the Mt. Gilead Baptist Church congregation of Green County put together a project to build a new house for Sally Hall & Family, high up on Fry Ridge, at the site of the old Fry Post Office. The project was started this morning, Saturday, September 22, 2012, and by around 2pmCT, the house was already under roof. Some 200 workers total, were on the scene during the day with trades persons and lay builders rallied from Green, Metcalfe, Adair, Marion and as far away as Casey County to pitch in on the project. In the afternoon, drywall was already being hung on the interior. The roofers, silhouetted above against blue sky, wanted no personal credit, saying they were just doing God's work. I've never witnessed anything quite like this in my life. - Larry Smith, 97.2 The WAVE radio
