On Saturday, January 7th Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod will raise walls and begin volunteer construction on 2 new affordable homes at 171 and 173 Cotuit Road in Sandwich. On Wall Raising Day, volunteers and the families who will build and then purchase the 2 affordable homes will come together for the first day of construction. The public is invited to watch the morning ceremony, beginning at 8 am, where the home purchasing families will be introduced, the homes will be blessed and then the walls will be raised. Spectators are asked to park at Sun Retreats Peters Pond- 185 Cotuit Rd, Sandwich or Hurley Farm, 164 Cotuit Road Sandwich. Habitat homes range from one to three bedrooms and the price to the homeowner is $138,000 to $168,000. Habitat Cape Cod homes are typically net zero possible, with solar panels, and air source heat pumps, which don’t use fossil fuels or combustion, for less environmental impact while lowering the homeowner’s energy cost. In the past 35 years, Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod has developed nearly 200 affordable homes on Cape Cod. Local families help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. And the Homes are deed restricted to remain affordable in perpetuity.
