On Thursday, April 29th, Den 4 had the very special privilege of getting to visit a new home construction site and learn about construction from the builders themselves. We were graciously hosted by Marty Anker of Anker Custom Homes, and two of his site supervisors, Paul and Cameron. The scouts (and the parents) were amazed at the house, which had a lot of really unique and unusual features (which was the best? elevator? theater? 3 kitchens? storm shelter? replica castle door?). It was great to get a “behind the scenes” look at something like this.
This visit completed component #4 of the “Build It” elective, page 269 (“Learn about a construction career. With your den leader, visit a construction site and interview someone working in a construction career.”)
