Progress was made over the weekend on the first home being built in Flin Flon by the Habitat 53° Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. A group of friends and family of future homeowner Angela Bennett came in from Snow Lake to help local workers continue building the home Saturday and Sunday. Local Committee Co-chair Ted Elliott says it was a good weekend. He says they got most of the exterior insulation in and most of the shingles are up adding the crew from Snow Lake was awesome, they were well organized and very skilled, just a great crew to work with.
The Habitat home is at 189 Steventon Boulevard and when completed it will be purchased by Angela and her son Austin through a no down payment no interest mortgage.
Any other groups interested in helping build the home can contact Volunteer Coordinator Katie Anderson at 204-687-3935.
