How Many Houses Have We Built?

People often ask how many houses we have built over the 13 years of the TJ Ministry. In the early days, we made houses from wooden garage doors with little expertise. We often didn't quite finish the insides. They we got better and made great houses with insulation, sheet-rock and painting. We almost completed the bathrooms and paid to finish them off. Now we are building houses with a finished bathroom and walls for the master bedroom. We leaving out the insulation and sheet-rock and let the homeowners finish the inside they way they want them. We call them shells.  They do a great job!  This way we can increase the number of families we help.
