  • Return to the Events page, click on your desired build date link, scroll down to Sign Up button, and follow instructions to complete your registration.

After you sign up for an event online you will automatically receive a confirmation email with additional details such as the exact location, what to bring, what to wear, etc.

Garrett will manually add you to the list of expected builders and make sure you have all the details you need such as the address, what to wear, what to bring, etc.


The construction team works very hard to plan tasks appropriate for the group size in advance, which ensures that we can make good use of volunteer time and also allows us to recruit enough crew leaders to safely handle the number of people on site. For this reason, registration closes 3 days prior to Tuesday and Saturday builds, and 1 day prior to other weekday builds.
