Hoorah! The house is all decorated and ready for Joi Billingsley to move in. This house was built by the Presbyterian Coalition, Cobb Habitat for Humanity with the help of eight Presbyterian churches in Cobb County, Georgia. I believe this is our 22d house in Cobb.
There are a total of 16 articles here outlining the building of this house from the slab to finish, including dedication and decoration. With that there are 11 slide shows. We still have a few fund=raising efforts to accomplish this year to help pay for next year’s build. In addition to this house, we are financing the building of 6 houses in Kenya this year. You can click here to select the 16 articles and slide shows all in one place.
Pretty as it is from the outside, wait until you see what Georgia Home Staging did for Joi inside!
If you came in late, Joi lost all her furniture to thieves that broke into her storage locker one weekend while she was working on her new home (sweat equity). Pat Shankle of Georgia Home Staging had already offered to stage (decorate and arrange) her house, and decided to help find donations to refunish it. A member of Macland Presbyteran Church donated and arranged for the bulk of the furnature, including decorations, lamps and artwork. Other donations of money and goods poured in.
With the help of donations, including a whole household of furnishings, Pat Shankle of Georgia Home Staging, Margret Kendall, and others from Macland Presbyterian Church finished staging and dicorating Joi’s new home. Everything new all around.

They made me promise not to use this photo, so don’t tell them about this site. The rest of the photo’s below came from Pat’s camera. There are a lot more shots from both of us in the slideshow below.
