2017 Construction
 
THE PALMER FAMILY will begin construction of their four-bedroom, slab-on-grade house at 30 Corcoran's Way in our North Branch Street Development in SEPTEMBER 2017.  Come help build with the Palmers!

 

THE AMAZING STUDENTS OF THE CDC BUILDING AND TRADES DIVISION are doing excellent work on Habitat's house at 24 Corcoran's Way in the North Branch Street Development.  They began with foundation work in October 2016 and since then have raised the walls and put on the roof.  They will build this three-bedroom, slab-on-grade house for Bennington County Habitat and in partnership with an income-qualified family through Habitat's homeownership program.  We are looking for a family for this house.  Share the good work about our homeownership application process!
