A New Partnership Builds a Special Home

Posted: Updated:

Habitat for Humanity of Bay Bounty has been building homes for families in need since 1992.  Today's groundbreaking on this new project marks the 63rd home built by Habitat for Humanity in Bay County.  Unlike homes built in the past, the new home off of Sherman Avenue will be built with higher energy standards.  "In this home what we're trying to do is control air infiltration. This home will incorporate features such as open cell foam in the wall and the attic," Marketing Director of Gulf Power Cal Wilson said. The new energy-efficient 1400 square foot home will be ready for the future homeowner in approximately 3 months.
