What happens when over 80 people convene under sprawling live oaks to jubilantly strip studs as drums and fiddles whirl upon the wind?
Thanks to an amazing group of volunteers that converged on the former site of Strathmore Estates in East Savannah, Emergent Structures was able to de-nail 770 studs and help deliver all of them to a nearby truss manufacturer, so the studs could be repurposed into trusses for the Mercy Housing affordable housing units that will be built on the very same site in the coming year.
Kudos to NorSouth Construction and Truss Mart for providing heavy machinery, tools, manhours, and invaluable expertise! Thrive Carry Out Cafe brought enough food to feed the morning and afternoon shifts, and thanks to Dez Hounges, Colleen Heine and Ben Bowne for the excellent music!
