Habitat house becomes a home

By  | 

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - The newest Habitat for Humanity house built at Central High School was loaded onto a truck and waiting to go at 9 am on Friday morning.

"This is the 10th house that central high school partnered with habitat on... and hope court is a habitat subdivision, so all the home here are habitat homes," said Kate Wright the Executive Director from Habitat for Humanity.

The house was built from the ground up by Central High students taking the construction technology class. "The students get a good education experience and then habitat gets the volunteers that they want," said Curtis Colbert, who teaches the construction class.

Neighbors who also had their house built by habitat were eagerly watching the crews place their new neighbors house. "They built our house and the one next door last year and this year they're building the one house," said Jared Haynes, the neighbor.

After weather delays and a last minute move, the house is ready for its new family.

"They're going to have their first home of their own, their very own home," said Wright.
