Building Loft Homes for Mexico

PLC has been building two loft homes per year for over a decade for families in Mexico who are in desperate need of housing. The building team pre-assembles small “loft homes” here in San Diego, trailers them to Ensenada and outlying areas, and does final assembly on site. There are many ways that you can help:  participate in the building process, contribute financially (each home costs $3200 to build) and pray. Pray for the families who will receive these homes and for blessings and safety at the work sites and while traveling.

General Build Schedule

  • Stage 1:  Material Cutting:  Fri., Sept. 20 from 12-4 pm–Cut materials for the loft homes in the PLC parking lot. Adults only, please! Experience preferred.
  • Stage 2:  Framing at PLC:  Sat., Sept. 21 from 8 am-3 pm–Assembling, painting and loading the pre-fabricated loft home sections on our trailers will take 40-50 people. This is truly a family mission experience. There are things to do for young and old, girls and boys–skilled and not-so-skilled.
  • Stage 3:  Trailer to Mexico:  Fri., Sept. 27–Leave PLC at 8:30 a.m.
  • Stage 4:  Mexico Build:  Sat., Sept. 28–Leave PLC at 5:30 a.m. and start assembling the loft homes about 9:00 a.m. We head back to San Diego when we’ve completed the loft homes, returning to PLC around 8:00 pm. Note:  there is also an option to return on Sunday after the Mexico build. This involves returning to the Hands of Mercy Ranch for relaxation and fellowship with other churches, dinner, and a restful night’s sleep.

April 2019 Build:

This year’s Loft Home Spring Build was a huge success. From the wood cutting to the painting and loading, the spirit of commitment and ‘can do’ attitude was non-stop. Our volunteers put their servant hearts to work making sure every last detail was completed and ready to load in preparation of the build in Mexico. Our team of volunteers traveled to Mexico to assemble the loft homes after Easter. We pray for the family who received this home and thank God for protecting our volunteers on this important mission across the border and back.

Note:  A passport is necessary to re-enter the U.S.
