Volunteering at Luque Family’s Habitat for Humanity Build

Carl Christianson

Last weekend, we volunteered at Habitat for Humanity’s Philomath build site for the Luque Family. We framed walls for a new home on 530 N 12th Street in Philomath. The home has about 800 square feet downstairs, and an equal amount upstairs. There will be four bedrooms upstairs. Habitat is also pouring foundations for a single floor home on the same site. The next steps will be to set the floor joists and start framing the second floor walls. I had a great time onsite and enjoyed the good weather. Please come out and join us if you are interested in learning some of the skills involved in home construction.
