On April 28th, 2007, Kate, Emma, and Rose woke up, ranging from 6 am to 7 am in order to prpare for our all day excursion with GRID Alternative's Engery Efficiency Team. Alyson wasn't there, it's okay, she's wayyyy too coool to go. unfortunately, she was in sacramento for a basketball tournement. The workday was from 8 am to 4 pm, although we finished around 5 pm. We met the other volunteers at Pier 28 on the Emparcadero to b e split up and be assigned our hit lists. Our group ended up being us three, as well as an experience volunteer, Thad, who showed us the ropes. We had three houses to go through, all of which were being remodelled extensively by Rebuilding Together, another nonprofit organization. 
Our assignments were to make the houses more energy efficient by installing door and window weather stripping, water pipe insulation, faucet acrators, and exchanging compact bulbs for fluorescent light bulbs. We got to learn how to use hack saws, change lights, and all sorts of cool handiwork. While Kate maintains that her expericne indicates that she is not skilled at rebuilding, the general consensus was that we had a good time and learned a lot. We got to help ppeople save moeny by installing free appliances and imporve their living situation.
