Habitat Home #6 Dedication on Sunday
Wednesday, May 28, 2008 • Posted May 28, 2008

Mason County Habitat for Humanity is pleased to invite the community to the Dedication Service for the sixth house to be built in Mason! The service will be on Sunday June 1st at 6:30 pm at the new residence at 1203 Loving Street (where it intersects with Gooch Street). The home will be dedicated to partner family Kim Jordan and daughters Samantha and Traci who have committed many hours of sweat equity, working in partnership with the local affiliate, to achieve the dream of homeownership.

This house, the second ‘Green Build’ for the local affiliate, again employs many energy efficient features, from the insulated concrete forms used in the exterior walls to the insulated roofline, to the solar panels providing hot water. Side-by-side comparisons to the more conventional stick builds of previous years offered an astounding 52% decrease in energy usage, providing lower utilities for the homeowner while conserving resources of the planet. The cathedral ceiling in the living area and the polished concrete floors add to the spacious feel of the modest residence of 3 bedrooms, 1& 1/2 bath. This house, with very careful planning, was also a ‘speed build’ taking less than 6 weeks of concentrated volunteer labor to construct!

It takes an entire community to make such a project possible and the affiliate is proud to share the results! The brief ceremony of dedication continues the Habitat tradition of Christian fellowship in committing the community to helping each homeowner family stay true to the path they embarked on in qualifying for the partnership, as the affiliate continues the mission of...Building houses, Building hope!
