Habitat dedicates 41st home

Amanda Purdy of Sturgeon Bay already knows she may never top this Christmas. Purdy, her husband Jacob, and their five children were on hand Thursday as Door County Habitat for Humanity dedicated their home as the 41st built in the organization's history. Volunteers put in extra hours to finish the home, which started two months later than usual. The home is the largest ever constructed by Door County Habitat for Humanity and also included the first two-car garage and basement built. As her children showed off their new bedrooms, Purdy is excited to reminisce about the memories they have seeing their home get built.


Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director David Van Dyke says after all the challenges they faced this year, dedicating the home was particularly sweet.


Van Dyke says they are still looking for their 42nd partner family for next year. The Purdy family expects to move in over the next few days.
