We are so excited to be able to move into a new home
Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) June 8, 2006
The first home built by a professional builder for a Habitat for Humanity family in Williamsburg will be dedicated on Thursday, June 8, 2006 at 8:30am at 113 Watford Lane, Williamsburg, VA.
Author Stephen Pierce, has flown in from Michigan to hand the new homeowners, the Lesia Robinson Family a copy of his book “Secrets to Creating Wealth,” to help them with their new start in this amazing new home.
This home was constructed by Hatchett Home Improvement. Hatchett Home Improvement, its subcontractors, suppliers and vendors helped build the house in less than one month, donating all the time and materials to Habitat.
“We are so excited to be able to move into a new home,” said excited, new Habitat Homeowner, Lesia Robinson. “My sons and I look forward to living here for the rest of our lives.” Robinson grew up in James City County and has worked as a housekeeper for Eastern State Hospital since 2005.
More than 1,000 homebuilders across the country will completely construct homes from start to finish, housing more than 1,000 people in 130 locations. This project is the single-largest building event in Habitat for Humanity International’s 30-year history and Habitat Peninsula’s 20-year history.
Stephen Pierce has vowed to give a copy of his new book to each and every habitat home build in the US and internationally. “Habitat for Humanity is a great organization and I am proud to be a part of it. If my book can help to inspire someone then in the end it’s all worth it. It’s all about giving back and helping your community.”
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit homebuilding organization which helps families in need build and purchase safe, decent, affordable housing. Homes are made possible by sponsorship and volunteer labor, including 400 hours of “sweat equity” the homeowner must provide. Habitat homeowners must have incomes between 30-50% of the area median income, excellent credit and the ability to pay for their new Habitat home. The home is sold at no profit with a no-interest 20-30 year mortgage carried by Habitat. Monthly mortgage payments are then recycled to build more homes in Virginia. Since its creation in 1985, Habitat Peninsula has completed 87 homes in Hampton, James City County, Newport News, Williamsburg and York County.
The Habitat homes constructed by the professional homebuilders will be approximately 1,200 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. In addition to Hatchett Home Improvement, other professional builders building a home in James City County are Powell Builders, Inc. and Wayne Harbin Builder, Inc. Calvin Collins Contractors, Inc and Marque Homes by C.R. McLellon Builder, Inc. are building two homes in Newport News.
Habitat Peninsula is currently in a year long commemoration of its 20th Anniversary and the professional Home Builder’s project is part of their anniversary celebrations.
Join Stephen Pierce, Habitat, and the homebuilders on Thursday, June 8, 2006 at 8:30am at 113 Watford Lane, Williamsburg, VA for this amazing dedication. Stephen will also hand out 50 copies of his book for free to the first 50 people who join us in celebrating this dedication.
