    ULBC Casabuilders,Inc.

    Mexico House-Building Outreach

    Tijuana, Mexico

Come join us on an extended weekend to build a home for a needy family in the outskirts of Tijuana,


We want to make these trips do-able for everyone and we have been able to keep the cost of the entire

    trip to only $200 (unless otherwise noted in the brochure). This includes transportation via ground

    vehicles, food (except on travel days), and lodging. We are taking donations to help cover the cost of

    the materials, but donations are not required.

    We will leave typically on a Thursday in the morning and arrive in Tijuana that evening. We will be

    staying at Sergio Gomez’ home in their bunkhouses for visiting groups. We will build on Friday,

    Saturday and will hand the keys to the family on Saturday evening. Sunday is the trip back home.

    No building experience is required, just a willing heart and willinghands! Please note that we are a

    tobacco , alchohol and drug-free organization. All participants will refrain from these during our entire

    trip. Any air-travelers need to be in San Diego on our driving day by 4pm for us to pick you up.

    What you need to bring.

    Note: A single MEDIUM SIZED sportsbag or duffel bag is a VERY good

    idea for all your personal gear. The main idea is think compact. You won’t need as much

    as you think. As your personal gear may be stowed or carried on top of a van or in the back

    of a pickup, loose pieces such as a sleeping bags, blankets or pillows may get lost or dirty

    and is hard to keep track of. (Target, Army Surplus or REI have them.) It’s okay to have

    sleeping bags and pillows separate if you wish. Pillows are great in the cars on the long trip

    and sleeping bags can be stuffed in all the holes. PLEASE TAG YOUR BAG.

     A separate book-bag is also good for carrying your personal water supply, snacks and other

    personal needs. We take these out to the jobsites everyday. Ladies, this works good as a



    RAIN GEAR-Jacket

    A servant's heart.


    Duffel Bag

    Book-Bag (backpack type)

    Sturdy work boots or shoes

    Two changes of clothes (prepare for warm, wet, cold,..anything! Think “layers”)


    Travel Pack of Towelettes /Wipes

    Bath towel

    Bath soap

    Wash cloth





    1 roll of toilet paper



    Personal medical supplies


    Work Gloves

    Anti-bacterial soap (Worksite washing)

    Clean rags (1 or 2) for washing in the field

    Sun block


    Sleeping bag


    Personal snack foods-good stuff you’re willing to share with me! Optional Items

    A few gifts for the kids in the village. (Soccer balls are a HUGE HIT.) A few housewarming gifts for the family. (all gifts must be small enough to fit under the van seats)

    Your Camera- Always bring this…even digital cameras PLEASE NO USED CLOTHES, THEY ARE ILLEGAL TO IMPORT INTO MEXICO- some of us leave

    our extra clothes with the families.

     The Tool List:

This is the list of personal tools to bring.

    We supply the power tools and larger items, But you need to bring the following items

    Clearly label your tools with your name or initials!

    Mark them with permanent ink to help you keep track of


    A good way to do this is to use a ring of white waterproof medical

    tape and write on the tape. I get more free tools because they don’t

    have names on them…

    Note: Some groups have successfully petitioned hardware stores for

    tool donations for their group. It’s worth a call…

1 Good quality hammer (16-20oz.)-cheaper hammers work, but you’ll do much better with a

    15-20 dollar hammer than the 5-6 buck shiney troublemaker or Uncle Bob’s rusty relic. Trust me.

    1 Utility Knife (With Blades)

    1 Nail Apron with Hammer loop or Small Tool belt

    1 Tape measure- at least 12 feet. 20’ is preferable 2 Carpenter Type Pencils- big, sturdy, sharpenable with a utility knife

OPTIONAL if desired:

    Nail Puller/Cat’s Paw

    Framer’s Square
