Our plans for Saturday

Each Habitat house is carefully planned by the Construction and Site Selection Committees and the Executive Director. The home will take approximately ten weeks to construct barring no inclement weather or other delays. After a ground- breaking picture has been taken with representatives from the affiliate, the homeowner and their family, friends, and church members, and the sponsoring partner, the foundation for the home is prepared. A schedule with tentative dates for each phase of construction is developed for all volunteers, Habitat members, and homeowners.

All work done by volunteers takes place on Saturdays, and begins with the erection of the walls. The day begins at 8:00 A.M. with devotion, sign-in, and instructions from the construction crew which is made up of construction committee members and a hired professional contractor. By 8:30 A.M. of each morning work commences.

One of Habitat's main objectives, besides * productivity, is safety. We provide water, gatorade, a first aid kit, and sunscreen for all volunteers throughout the day. However, it is recommended that each volunteer bring a pair of gloves and a hammer.

At 12:00 P.M. a separate volunteer group provides lunch, ranging anywhere from sandwiches and chips
to grilled hotdogs and hamburgers for all volunteers. This typically is the end of the day. However, on the first several Saturdays some work is required after lunch in order to dry in the house. On the tenth and final Saturday all volunteers are invited to dedicate the home with the family and view the finished product.
