One year after building the biggest home in its history, Door County Habitat for Humanity is already planning its first handicapped accessible home. One of the children in the Bright family gets around using a wheelchair, requiring the home to not just have ramps where possible but wider doorways and a fully accessible shower. Construction supervisor Chuck Stone says he has never been involved with a build this unique and has already contacted other Habitat affiliates to learn about what they will have to do. However, for Stone, the feeling they will get building the home will be the same.
Ground will likely be broken in the coming months with the initial digging costs being covered by Rass Excavating. Stone says volunteers can check in at Habitat’s Sturgeon Bay offices to learn more about how they can help.
