Steel-toed boots keep your feet safe, but can they do it without pinching, binding or producing blisters?
People ask me all the time, “Where can I learn how to use tools?”
I always tell them the same thing, because it’s free and it’s really cool: volunteer for a Habitat for Humanity build. They’ll teach you everything you need to know about power tools, framing, drywalling, siding and finishing while you practice on an actual house.
And when that hand-built house is finished, it will be happily inhabited by a Habitat family who will pay an interest-free mortgage for 25 years. And all of that money goes into buying more land and building supplies to create even more Habitat homes. It’s a rewarding cycle and everyone wins.
