Day one of Building

We have begun building our next house in Dunedin. We have put up a kitset toilet (important things first) and getting things ready for the floor to be put down. There is a working bee this Saturday. Look forward to seeing you all there.

Ready to start our build - February 11th

The building of our twelfth house in Dunedin is due to start. The floor is being laid by professionals and this work is starting on February 11th, 2008. Martin Webber is our Building Foreman and can be contacted through the Habitat phone number (03) 477 3507.

First Working Bee
Volunteers will be required on Saturday February 16th at 28 Turnbull Street, Brockville. We will be working on site getting everything ready for the build ahead. Volunteers will be welcome to work on site during the week from Monday 18th February. Malcam Trust group begin their work on the building site on February 19th and will be working three days every week until the completion of the job. Malcam Trust works with young people in a variety of ways offering different life experiences. We partner with the Malcam Trust in running the Bargain Barn and they are assisting with financing this build. This is a valuable training opportunity for these young people and any volunteers who can work alongside them would be welcome.

We also look forward to working with the Zonta Women’s Group who will join us on the build in April.

If you are involved with a church or any other group and would like to organise a team building day working along side our volunteers on this build please leave a comment below.

Our Family
We look forward to building with our new family and helping make a house a home from the ground up.
