Our “winter warrior” volunteers have embraced the chilly wet weather on our sites and made some serious progress to get us ready for the warmer days ahead. Here's what's been happening on the Habitat construction sites:
Oakland - Renovation
Volunteers were busy putting the final touches on this home renovation and we passed our final inspection. Just a few final touches left but this house is almost ready to be a family's home!
Walnut Creek - New Home Development, Esperanza Place
While the winter weather has made for some muddy conditions on site, this project is pushing forward regardless of what Mother Nature may throw our way! Right now we’re working on sheathing, exterior trim, and roofing. Once the weather clears up, we'll start planning for solar panel installations!
San Jose – Renovation
We're still working hard behind the scenes getting this site construction-ready. In the coming months we're start soil remediation and installing underground utilities. We hope to lower this historic building on a new foundation in late spring and then have volunteers help us get this site ready for four new homeowners this summer.
Bay Point – New Home Development, Pacifica Landing
With shovels in hand, we're patiently waiting on city approval on our final maps and plans for this 29 home development. Once approved, we're ready to dig-in and get building!
Our ReStore in Concord moved to a new location off Diamond Blvd in Concord that more than DOUBLED the space for shoppers to find deals, supporters to fill with donations, and volunteers to give back! This move was a true team effort with our ReStore staff, our construction team, and volunteers working together to renovate an old Ethan Allen into our newest ReStore. Now it's time to celebrate! Join us for our Grand Opening event on March 11 for great deals, food, music, and games! Plus, you can win discounts and enter a raffle for free prizes during the celebration. And for the early birds? The first 100 shoppers will receive a Habitat ReStore swag bag!
