Like the weather, things are heating up at Habitat! With the latest update to our COVID restrictions, we’re excited to be welcoming back more and more volunteers to our construction sites, ReStores, and Playhouse workshops to help us #BuildMore. See what’s been going on at the construction site and how you can get involved with Habitat for Humanity in the Bay Area.
Oakland (Manila Avenue): We’re nearing the “home” stretch on the first of two renovations in the heart of Oakland! The future homeowners have been pitching in alongside our volunteers, and have spent the month installing flooring, finishing up interior trim, and working on landscaping and irrigation. All this hard work is getting us prepped for the final inspection so that a family can soon call this house a home!
San Jose (Guanacaste Court): This single-family condo renovation is DONE! Thanks to the time and support of our community, the homeowner is working through the closing process, and we’re almost ready to welcome a new Habitat family home.
Walnut Creek (Esperanza Place): We’re getting close to shovels in the ground at this future 42-home neighborhood in Walnut Creek! This month, we’ve wrapped up remediation of the soil on site. Meanwhile, in the Oakland Workshop, several homes’ worth of walls have already been pre-framed and are ready to be trucked out to the site, thanks to the hard work of our Women’s Leadership Build and other volunteer groups! In case you missed it in the June construction update, check out this sneak peek at this future development:
