Groundhog Day
     Crystal Frye
   February 2, 2021
Have you seen the classic movie Groundhog Day? Where Bill Murray lives out the same day over and over again? It is pretty hilarious, but it is really a visual of the definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. It drives him nuts for a while until he figures it out and starts to change things up.
We have been stuck in a Groundhog Day of our own in the housing world for the last few decades at least. We keep building these homes out there that are falling down around our ears, patching them up with the help of big box stores dedicated to our inevitable home improvement and repair projects, and then continuing the cycle all over again with new construction. At what point do we stand up and realize that we can’t keep waking up to do the same thing over and over and expecting the results to change? Well. NOW. 
It is 2021. We have a responsibility to ourselves to build the one thing that will sustain our future more than ANYTHING else out there- better! OUR HOMES. Our homes as a whole make up the BIGGEST INFRASTRUCTURE Of our country. And yet we are building houses that routinely fail before the length of the mortgage is up. Why is that? We used to build homes that would last forever! We could pass them down in families! I bet there are neighborhoods near you with homes that are over 100 years old and they are in better shape than the ones built 30 years ago.
I could write and write about the frustrations that the state of housing in our world bring up in me, but we’re all about solutions here at Lincoln Block and we are ALL well aware of how bad things are out there.
So, lets focus on the solutions. Let’s break out of our own Groundhog Day when it comes to building houses and focus on what we can use to STOP the insanity and build better for our children and our grandchildren. Let’s be the first to stand up and take it into our own hands and just start doing better!
We have something here that can really help. It is super easy to learn and build with and will be stronger and last longer than what is being built currently. It solves a problem all the way from the Mills to the end user. It is super affordable and can be built in half the time in comparison to the methods used today.
You guys- to me this is a no brainer. But We need YOUR help! It really is just a few of us here at Lincoln Block trying our best to get this out to the world. Its kind of feels like how I Imagine a musician feels. Writing those songs that could change the perspective of many, but just hoping to be discovered by someone who can help us get it out there. The Kickstarter was our first try and we will never stop. We will continue to help each and every person that wants to build a better future one block at a time until we can make this mainstream. And we will. The Kickstarter certainly would have helped us to move faster but we know with all of the amazing support behind us the momentum you have caused will keep us going. Thank you for being part of the Lincoln Block family. We know we can do this because of YOU.
We expect big things this year here at Lincoln Block no matter if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow or not. We are tired of waking up every day to the same old thing and we are ready to take things into our own hands to build a better future with block together. The coolest thing ever is knowing that we have all of you behind us every step of the way. We appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you.
