Habit for Humanity to build four new homes on Cousineau
By Fred Sherwin
off their recent build on Nantes Drive in Avalon, Habitat
for Humanity is planning to build four more homes on Cousineau
Street in Convent Glen South in the coming year.
four homes will be comprised of two single detached homes
and two semi-detached homes. The build will begin as soon
as the city approves the building permits.
to the National Capital Region Habitat for Humanity, the
four homes will be more simple in design than the ones
that were built on Nantes Drive last year.
will also be built along two different themes -- females
and youth. The Female Build will be conducted by teams
of women who raise funds and awareness about Habitat for
Humanity, while the Youth Build will be conducted by youth
from local schools and community organizations. Anyone
interested in volunteering for the build can submit their
name and contact information at www.habitatncr.com.
all goes well the homes will be ready for occupancy next
fall. Under the Habitat for Humanity program, potential
recipients must meet several criteria, among them the
ability to pay a predetermined interest free mortgage.
They must also invest a minimum of 500 hours into the
construction of their home as a downpayment.
recipient families of the four new homes on Cousineau
Street will be announced next week.
four new homes will bring the total number of Habitat
for Humanity homes in Orléans to 13. There are
seven on Nante Drive and two on Tulip Crescent in Chatelaine
story was made possible thanks to the generous support
of our local business partners.)
