Even for an experienced core of volunteer Door County Habitat for Humanity home builders, you will have something new come up every year. In addition to an attached garage, the homebuild will include the construction of an eight-foot-high basement for the first time in several years. Crews have poured walls for four-foot crawlspaces in the past, but the size of the Purdy family required more space for the home. Construction supervisor Chuck Stone says the higher walls add about two weeks to the project.
Stone says he would appreciate more volunteers for the organization’s weekly build days on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Sturgeon Bay. This marks the 41st time Door County Habitat for Humanity has built a home for a deserving family.
