Getting ready for a new house

House 8 was built for a woman named Josie who lives with her three grown children.  She has two sons, Adolfo who was 22 years old when the house was built, and Estarlin who was 21 years old when the house was built.  Her daughter Anrlosia was 20 years old when the house was built.  Josie told us she had children when she was 16, 17, and 18.  Her daughter Anrlosia has a baby that was 6 months old when the house was built.  Josie teaches bible school at Pastor Juan's church, and she works as a cleaner to support her family. Each month she makes 1500 pesos ($33 dollars) to support the entire family. For this project, we kept the existing home and built a new home right next door so that the growing family could have the space they need.
