Construction is continuing at our new project, a subdivision called Parrotts Ferry Village in Columbia. Included in the subdivision will be 35 single-family homes. These homes will be built over the next 5 years.
Groundbreaking for Parrotts Ferry Village was held in August 2011 and completion of the first duplex in occurred in April 2012.
In 2012, HFHTC was selected as the only California-based affiliate to receive funding for Habitat for Humanity International’s Home Builders Blitz 2012. With the generous support of California Gold Development Corporation and numerous local sub-contractors, the second duplex was completed on June 29, 2012.
Currently we in the process of completing homes 5 and 6 and are always looking for volunteers to help us build. Tasks vary daily and include all aspects of construction including: framing, roofing, siding, trim, painting, installing doors and windows, and landscaping. Most of these tasks require many hands, both skilled and unskilled. We need a team of volunteers to help us build these homes. Please come and be a part of that team!
Home 7 will be completed through the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Thrivent Builds project. Foundation work will start in February 2013!
