Habitat for Humanity to dedicate four homes
August 3, 2010
Habitat for Humanity of East King County plans to dedicate homes for four families in the Issaquah Highlands next week.
Dignitaries and Habitat families will gather at 3 p.m. Aug. 14 to dedicate houses for the Aguirre, Reyes, Talton and Thao families. Volunteers broke ground last June on the houses at 2500 N.E. Magnolia St.
The two- to four-bedroom homes range from 1,000 to 1,400 square feet. Volunteers completed about 90 percent of the labor, and the families contributed 500 hours of sweat equity toward their homes.
Habitat sells the homes at cost — about $100,000. Homeowners repay no-interest loans and Habitat retains ownership of the land.
The project has attracted hundreds of volunteers during construction, including Seattle Storm players. Team members turned out in May for a weeklong Women Build event.
