Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Cape Cod and Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod kick off Blitz Build 2022 Monday, Sept. 19.
The marathon home build in Falmouth features the construction of a house from frame to finish in one week to help bring awareness to the affordable housing crisis on Cape Cod. Hundreds of HBRACC members and their suppliers will donate countless hours of skilled labor and materials to build an affordable home to be sold to a qualifying local family.
The Blitz Build will be completed on Friday Sept. 23.
This year marks HBRACC’s fifth Blitz Build for Habitat for Humanity. This program makes it possible for Habitat to build more homes without overextending capacity or significantly increasing overhead. Home Builders Blitz events create relationships with local builders, many of whom become regular volunteers with Habitat and/or donors to their ReStores. Home Builders Blitz also gives local builders a chance to give back to their community and to network with other builders and suppliers.
“The Blitz Build is an amazing representation of the HBRACC Membership and our commitment to our communities”, said Chris Flanagan, Executive Officer for the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Cape Cod. “All of the materials and the time it takes to build the house has been donated. Our members are involved in every facet of the build. Building an affordable home for a deserving family is something we are all proud to be a part of”.
“We are hugely grateful that the HBRACC members continue to enthusiastically embrace the challenge of fully funding and then building a Habitat home in just five days. Aside from the opportunity it offers to the local family purchasing it, the Blitz home has served to build awareness of the tremendous affordable housing need here on Cape Cod,” said Wendy Cullinan, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod.
