Another Sunshine Coast family are the proud owners of a new home, thanks to the work of Habitat for Humanity.
Last Saturday, March 1, was moving day for Katie Hopkins, Michael Towers and their three young children.
The family has been patiently waiting since they were chosen in June of last year as the next family to occupy the affordable housing partnership at the Sunshine Coast Village development in Wilson Creek.
Hopkins and Towers, along with other family members and friends, have put in hundreds of volunteer labour hours in order to qualify for the house.
"They would like to thank all the other Habitat volunteers who also donated so much time and effort to this project," said Habitat spokesperson Janet Flagel. "The homes would never be completed without the help of the local businesses who have given so much of their time, products and expertise."
The lovely two-storey duplexes within the Sunshine Coast Village development are starting to take shape, with four units now complete and another eight in the construction and planning stages.
Eligible families are chosen by the Sunshine Coast Habitat board of directors. Anyone interested in applying for future homes can pick up an application form at the Habitat ReStore in Sechelt.
