Habitat finding balance with three projects

You will find Door County Habitat for Humanity volunteers stretching the entire peninsula over the next few months as they continue to work on three separate affordable housing projects. Volunteers are working on two different home builds in Baileys Harbor and Sturgeon Bay. They are also assisting in renovating a home for a family in Algoma. It takes time, people, and money to take on the work. According to the National Association of Homebuilders, the price of lumber alone has added another $14,345 to the price of a single-family home. Algoma’s Lakeside Community Church, the United States Coast Guard, UW-Milwaukee, and other groups have all provided valuable help to construction supervisor Chuck Stone and his site supervisors Richard Dannhausen and Tom Tuttle. Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Lori Allen says without the extra support, they would not be able to do as much as they are this year.

Allen hopes they can hold dedications for all three projects later this fall. Door County Habitat for Humanity is already working ahead for next year’s home build as they prepare to announce the 49th partner family later this year. A recent golf outing hosted by the organization and the Door County Homebuilder’s Association raised over $25,000 for affordable housing projects in the area.
