Chistopher: We worked on three different homes. These are homes that got flooded by Hurricane Harvey, and we do flooring, drywall, cabinets and get these people back in their homes. They been out of their homes for about a year since the hurricane.
And we get as much done as we can in a week and then we go back in 2 months and, either, sometimes we continue on the same house if it's not all the way done, or they give us other houses to work on.
