The Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Cape Cod and Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod have announced the 2022 Blitz Build.
The 2022 Blitz Build will take place the week of Sept. 19, 2022 on Willett Way in Falmouth. The three-bedroom ranch is one of 10 affordable houses being constructed on a 5.5-acre site that was purchased with Town of Falmouth Community Preservation Act funds by Habitat of Cape Cod. This is HBRACC’s fifth Blitz Build for Habitat for Humanity.
A Blitz Build is a home that is built 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 also benefits local builders, many of whom become regular volunteers with Habitat and/or donors to their ReStores. The project gives local builders a chance to give back to their community and to network with other builders and suppliers.
“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,” said Wendy Cullinan, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod. “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.”
