In fact, Hemmis admits shes often the first to go when a family sees their house for the first time and her crying gets so out of control that its annoying.
Says Hemmis: Ill try to hold back but when you see big, burly construction guys with tears in their eyes, well its really hard not to cry too.
As she puts it, These families have been through so much and it breaks my heart every time.
She says the tears dont often come until the end of the project and she says she never operates any power tools when shes emotional.
Besides helping those less fortunate than herself, Hemmis also is the author of The Tuff Chix Guide To Easy Home Improvement (Plume).
