Taking a break from checking out progress on her new home, Mandy Eirich said she still finds everything surreal.
“It’s not real yet. I think once I move in, it’ll be,” she said at the location of her new home, which is Habitat for Humanity’s sixth build in Moose Jaw. “I love building. I love power tools. I’m learning so much on how to build my own house and it’s not even about building a house. It’s building it with absolute love. Everyone puts all their love into it and that’s the best feeling.”
Eirich is a single mother whose nephew has lived with her full-time for the past three years.
