Wall of Hope Raising: A Structure Engraved with Love

Made of more than lumber, the walls raised on lot 19 at the Woods at Golden Given bear the love of the community. A tradition for the annual Building on Faith House – Wall of Hope involves the signing of 2×6 studs to carry messages of congratulations, well wishes, and hope for the family that will call the completed house a home.

Sponsors, supporters, and volunteers came together last Saturday to raise 20 signed studs as a permanent Wall of Hope in a Habitat for Humanity home.

Second Use Building Materials, a sponsor, expressed the reward of seeing their stud take shape as part of the home:

“It was incredible to see the same 2×6 that had floated around our break room gathering signatures and messages just a few months ago now integrated into what, by the end of the day, looked more like a home than a stack of lumber.”
