Current building projects in Whatcom County
Linda Clow's home in Acme, WA
Finished! It was a team effort from start to finish. In May, 2018, Lowes Women Build Day volunteers, along with Linda’s neighbors in Acme, Washington, started site preparation work. February through June, 2018, through good weather and bad, Linda’s new home rose from the cleared lot. July, 2018, through February, 2019, the driveway and foundation were completed, the walls went up, trusses, roofing and electrical work was done, drywall went up, and the home was painted. A big thank you to all of our amazing volunteers, supporters, and friends for their hard work, time, ideas and energy. (A special shout-out to Champion Donors Lowes and Topside Roofing.)
The Telegraph Townhomes project is a permanent, affordable, low-income housing solution proposed by the Kulshan Community Land Trust (KulshanCLT) and Habitat for Humanity in Whatcom County (HFHWC). This groundbreaking project will consist of 52 townhomes to be sold to Whatcom County residents earning 30% – 80% of the area medium income, thereby resulting in long-term housing solutions for average wage earners in Whatcom County. The land will be held in the land-trust, further reducing the cost of these energy-efficient homes to the homebuyers and maintaining the homes’ affordability.
The Santiago-Reyes family joined the Habitat program in 2013, racing through their 500 sweat-equity hours by volunteering in our Habitat Store and on several build sites. Currently living in Ferndale, the family of three is excited to know that construction is well underway on their new home on Bramble Way in beautiful Sudden Valley.
