Blitz Build Day 9 - Finished! Great job Nate and Spencer!

Yesterday, EDGE Homes and its subs finished the Blitz Build home in Provo. Phew! Carpet, hardware, and fixtures were installed, finish electrical, plumbing, and HVAC were completed, and paint was touched up. It is hard to believe that we started the home only nine short days ago. It is expected that we will receive occupancy from Provo City today. The house will be cleaned tomorrow by volunteers from the Heritage School and EDGE employees will be doing the landscaping Friday morning. We are excited to cut the ribbon with the Sanabria family on Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. Come celebrate with us! We will be having a short ceremony and then dinner provided by California Pizza Kitchen and Mighty Baker.

Habitat Builders Blitz Day 6,7, & 8 - Almost Done!

The subcontractors worked through the weekend and yesterday at our Blitz Build home in Provo. They painted both the interior and exterior of the home, mounted cabinets, and installed appliances. Today, they plan to do the finish electrical, plumbing, and HVAC, install the hardware, finish the flooring, and other odds and ends. The home will be more or less done. Crazy that a home can be built and finished in nine days! Awesome job Nate and Spencer!

Mobile Tool Library at Work!

Habitat worked with local non-profit, Encircle, on Friday to help with the final landscaping, window washing, and cleaning at the community center's new location in downtown Provo. Habitat donated cleaning kits and provided its Mobile Tool Library for the afternoon volunteer project.

Encouraging Service!

Habitat hosted a booth at Utah Valley University's Annual Service Learning Fair this past week. Habitat has a student chapter at UVU and loves working with student volunteers.

A Day to Care!

Habitat for Humanity of Utah County hosted four United Way Day of Caring projects on Thursday. Provo City and Orem City staff members and Flowserve volunteers worked at the Orem and Spanish Fork ReStores, hung drywall at a Habitat home in Provo, and installed a drip system our the TyeRay Community Garden as part of this annual day of service. We appreciate United Way and all the wonderful volunteers that participated in the service event.
