Figuring last year’s Door County Habitat for Humanity home build did not even break ground until the final days of May, it was going to be easy for the crew this time to be ahead of schedule. Last week the home build volunteers poured in the basement walls and did other site preparation work ahead of the home’s framing. A welcome sight for Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director David Van Dyke has been the Bright family, which has had at least one person on site for every build day this year. Van Dyke says it is important to have that kind of family commitment to the home build itself.
Partner families like The Brights need to contribute hundreds of “sweat equity hours” to qualify for the home. Door County Habitat for Humanity is need of volunteers for the build days on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
