Habitat for Humanity of Findlay-Hancock County is embarking on its biggest build ever.
The house at 831 Putnam Street in Findlay is the organization’s 44th house overall, and 3rd rehab.
Construction Manager Steve Gibbs says the home was set to be demolished but they knew that with a lot of hard work they could make it into a great home for a family.
“All the mechanicals will be new, all the wiring will be new, the insulation’s new, the siding’s new, so this will, except for the basic frame of the house, be a new home.”
He says these project just couldn’t get done without so many great volunteers.
“We’re working on every level of the home, there’s a group on the first story, second story, there’s a group in the basement, there’s people outside cleaning up. We’re in all corners of the property at this point.”
He says the new homeowners are required to put in 500 hours of sweat equity with the project.
Gibbs says the home should be ready for the family of nine to enjoy in the middle of June.
