Woman Built Home- Habitat Home for Humanity

By
Real Estate Agent with JH Realty Partners 6501309180

Another person went out on their own to work on the "Woman Built" Habitat home for humanity.  Linda Pell- Keller Wiliams Realty - member of WCR, went out on her own and worked at this home.  Linda called me after working on the home yesterday, as she had a great experience, she said she was pleased with how many people came out to help after they worked their "full time jobs" .  If felt like an Amish committee that is working together to build a new home.  Linda has signed up for 2 more days.  Linda worked on making trellises and feels so good about the work she did that it makes the muscle pain she has not feel so bad!!!

Shelly Abbott - Greenridge Realty -WCR member went out last weekend, she was very excited about her experience.  They put her in charge of the power saw!  Shelly has signed up for more days as well!

The home Shelly and Linda went out to work on is the home WCR is supporting for Landscaping as part of our F.L.O.W. foundation.

Thank you Linda and Shelly!!!!

The date set aside for WCR to work on the landscaping portion is June 7th, however if you do not want to do physical work, there is still room to support the landscaping project financially.  See sponsorship section of the F.L.O.W. website.

Also visit our blog site for more info and to keep up on the updates as they become available.

Below are pictures of the home courtesy of Linda Pell.

Good job.  Sometimes we are so busy selling them we forget that someone has to build them.  And what a great cause to provide homes for people that could not afford one otherwise.  How do they get the land for these homes?  Just curious.

Melissa, all community support, what ever it is you donate your time to is great.  I just say find something to donate to.

Kathryn, not sure how they get the land, but I looked this one up on the local tax site, and it looks like this is a re-build from a once bank owned home.  I do know HUD has $1.00 programs to non-profits, so I wonder if this is how the acquired the home............. however not sure.  Good question.

You know I was just thinking how much this Charity means to me, and realized something.....

I am a Oprah fan!  Oprah always says when you give, it comes back to you....... 10 folds.  How true this has been for us, who are working on this project.  I have been busier with work then I have been in a while, Shelly Abbott (landscaping sub-chair), once she started helping, I can remember her telling me all of her listings sold!  Mary Kent (sponsorship sub-chair) is so busy with work, I hate to call her with help!  : )

We should not give expecting something in return, however it just seems to work out that way.
