We’re installing trim, working on siding, and sprucing things up – we should say cedar-ing things up – with cedar shingles on this renovation on Manila Avenue. Next, we look forward to some work on the back deck and painting the interior.

Keep an eye on our Oakland volunteer opportunities to see how you can help get this home in great shape for a future Habitat homeowner.

Walnut Creek - New Home Development, Esperanza Place

The Women’s Leadership Build earlier this month has kicked construction into high gear! With the first floor walls on the first building framed and standing tall, we’re ready for stairway walls and subfloor. The work doesn’t stop there, though! We’ve poured one more new foundation, looking to pour the next in the coming days, and also working on the foundation form for yet another building. Which means, of course, lots of framing in our future.

Take a look at our Walnut Creek volunteer opportunities to pitch in!

San Jose - Renovation
We’re finalizing designs and preparing to scoot this beautiful building onto its final foundation. In the meantime, we’ve got site work, fencing, a little demolition, and general clean-up on our plates. Soon, this future home of four Habitat families will settle onto its foundation, and the work of renovating will get under way.
Bay Point - New Home Development, Pacifica Landing

Stay tuned! We’re in the final approvals stage on this development, and soon we’ll be ready to kick off construction!

San Jose - Neighborhood Revitalization

As you know, we’re all about community at Habitat – and a great way to support our community is by partnering with other incredible organizations that also serve the neighborhoods in which we work. Currently, we’re helping reconstruct part of the deck on the historic Rotary Club building off Senter Road in San Jose. It’s a great chance to work in a beautiful setting supporting a strong Habitat partner – and a lot of fun to build!
