Bright day for Habitat dedication

The eyes were as wet inside as the people were outside during Door County Habitat for Humanity’s 42nd home build dedication Wednesday afternoon. Rain forced the majority of the attendees into the new garage of the Bright family. Organizations presented the Bright family with a bookshelf, bible, and toolbox while they, in turn, showered Door County Habitat for Humanity and its volunteers with praise. The Bright family put in 845 sweat equity hours into the home, so Kari says it was hard staying out of it for five days ahead of Wednesday’s dedication.

The house is a unique building for Door County Habitat for Humanity as it is the organization’s first zero-entry home. That allows daughter Tatiana to safely maneuver around the house in her wheelchair, giving her freedom she never had before. Construction supervisor Chuck Stone says delivering a new house for a partner family never gets old.

The house is not quite finished yet as Stone hopes the Bright family will be able to move in by the end of the month.
