West Union Build Kicks Off

The New Year found construction crew volunteers hard at work on Oconee County Habitat for Humanity’s newest subdivision in West Union.  This build, on Eastpointe Drive, will allow fifteen hardworking families to own their own home and with that, the stability and security that homeownership can provide.  Many of the future homeowners in this neighborhood have worked together building other Habitat families’ homes and have already formed a sense of community and friendship as they work on their future homes.  This project is expected to take approximately two and one-half years to complete with the first home available for occupancy in this fall.

Westminster Subdivision Nears Completion

With the last house nearing completion, Oconee County Habitat for Humanity will soon finish its Butler School Road build in Westminster.  This nine house subdivision, built on the former site of the Butler School, received generous grants from Schneider Electric, Wells Fargo Bank, and the Western Upstate Realtors Association to help offset construction costs.  Employee volunteers from Schneider Electric, Wells Fargo Bank, Itron and several local churches periodically came out in force and swung hammers, hoisted walls and provided much appreciated help to our regular construction and landscaping volunteers.
