Framing Geezers

The framing geezers help us with all things framing! From helping to build walls to putting in porches and stairs, they love using a hammer. They also help lead groups of volunteers in how to build from time to time. They are led by Dr. Chuck, a former pediatrician, who literally wrote the Geezer framing manual.
