There are nearly 2 billion people around the world who live in slum housing and more than 100 million are homeless. That equates to one out of every four people on our planet. Habitat builds because we believe this is unacceptable and that every person can make a real difference. Please join us and encourage your friends to help us BUILD more homes, communities, and hope throughout the world and in our community.
We will post photos of the two builds during the month of February. The photos on the left are of the Ruggles' home and the photos on the right are of the Carmouche-Shum home. We will add photos throughtout the month. You can see earlier photos by going to the Photo Gallery and clicking on the Jennifer Lane homes. You can order any of the photos by double clicking on the photo you want.
We will insulate the walls.
We will finish work on the basement stairs and, weather permitting, we will work on the back steps.
We will insulate the walls and will put more Typar on the exterior walls.
We will finish work on the back steps.
The construction schedule will be updated each week. Please understand that the schedule is our best estimate of what we will be able to accomplish on any given day. The availability of volunteers, materials, and the weather all have an impact on what can be done.
