Sierra Pacific Industries, LLC has donated the lumber for framing Habitat for Humanity of Mason County’s House #27 under construction in Shelton and for Habitat’s next construction, House #29. This is lumber that’s been both grown and milled in Mason County and will now be used to build a home for a family that qualifies for a Habitat for Humanity of Mason County home – “A hand-up, not a hand-out”.
The Ochoa-Godinez family has been selected to purchase House #27. They have been actively working with Habitat to complete the 400 hours in sweat equity required to purchase a Habitat home. Habitat plans for completion of House #27 after the new year and will start House #29 in the Spring of 2018. House #28 is a nearly completed renovation.
Construction volunteers are welcome to join us for both weekday and weekend work parties. The three bedroom, two bath home will be the first two story that the local Habitat has built. For information on how you can volunteer or support Habitat for Humanity of Mason County call the office at 360-426-8134 or visit the website at www.habitatmasonwa.org.
