Habitat Happenings

Kevin’s Blog – 1 week, 4 homes!

1 week, 4 homes!

Professional builders would rather build than talk, so in that spirit, I’ll keep this short.  Thanks to Savvy Homes, Regency Centers, A.R. Nix Construction, Williams Realty & Building, and the Triangle Builders Guild for showing up with their subcontractors and suppliers last week on our sites in Augusta Crossings in Raleigh and leaving the week with four completed and beautiful homes.  Several other companies also  participated by supporting all 4 homes:  Stock Building Supply, PlyGem, and Baker Roofing.

These builders are talented, they are generous, and they are a lot of fun to be around.  70 Habitat Wake homes have now been built through the Builders Blitz model, pioneered at Habitat Wake in 2002.  Thanks so much to those who have been and continue to be involved!

Here are some photos of the homes built entirely last week!  I know that the Blue, Utley, Jordan, and Lesane/Quiller families are still in awe of the generosity flowing on their behalf.  They are very excited to purchase and move in to these homes!

At a recent house dedication in Augusta Crossings, Pastor J. Vincent Terry of SE Raleigh’s Mount Peace Baptist Church shared with us a quote that really spoke volumes to me:

“We all drink from wells that we did not dig and we eat fruit from vines we did not plant.”

At that dedication we had two families who generously shared their abundance with us and were the sponsors of the homes being dedicated.  And we had two very blessed families that were excited to become owners of a home for the very first time.  Pastor Terry’s words are unifying, aren’t they?  No matter our financial resources, we are all blessed by and rely on the work of others for our daily sustenance.  This is very obvious in Habitat, but it’s all around us everyday.

 

Stores Closed Tuesday, May 14th

The Raleigh and Cary ReStores will be closed on Tuesday, May 14th.  The staff from the affiliate will be building a house on a Habitat for Humanity work site.  The home is funded by revenue generated from the Wake county ReStores that wouldn’t be possible without your donations and purchases.  Thank you for your help to provide affordable housing for a deserving family in our community!
