Residents in Germantown, Tennessee who suffered water damage from a severe and intense rainstorm in early June continue the work to repair their homes. Jay Schwartzmann's home had only four inches of water in it, but there was still much that was ruined. The carpets, floors, sheetrock and much of the furniture were a total loss. Schwartzmann is using this opportunity to update his kitchen. I was honored to take part in volunteer restoration and clean-up activities, helping to remove all the kitchen cabinets which will either be repurposed in the garage or donated to ReStore, a Habitat for Humanity affiliate.
