Habitat breaks ground on newest home

Submitted to the Sky-Hi News

Habitat for Humanity of Grand County has started construction of the 2014 Habitat house.

The organization is celebrating the start of construction with future homeowners Shelly Heckerson and her children, Sierra and Max, and is inviting the public to a strictly ceremonial event of ground-breaking, since excavation has already started. The event takes place at 4:30 p.m., on Wednesday, June 25, at 125 W. Topaz in Granby, across from Granby Elementary School. Since it is an active build site with excavation under way, those who attend are asked to exercise care at the site and watch children carefully.

Habitat is most grateful to the late Dawn Cone and his family who bequeathed the property to Habitat. While Habitat was unable to salvage the 1950s-era log cabin; the property is in an ideal location for the Heckerson family and a great blessing to Habitat in Grand County.
