Habitat plans next house in Hot Sulphur Springs

With a Habitat for Humanity house expected to be completed for the Nixon family’s Thanksgiving move-in date, Habitat for Humanity in Grand County already is planning its fourth house in Hot Sulphur Springs.

In 2010, Habitat organizers aim to build at 204 Moffat Ave.

“We expect to begin construction in early spring and complete the house by late fall or early winter,” said Habitat Executive Director Joan Boyle.

For this reason, Grand County Habitat for Humanity is taking applications from families in need of a no-interest mortgage loan and with the desire to contribute “sweat equity” toward the construction of a house of their own.

Qualifying families should have lived in Grand County for at least one year, have an income of no more than $40,800 for a family of three (or $35,500 for a family of two) have the ability to pay a monthly mortgage, presently live in inadequate housing and commit to sweat equity.

Potential home buyers are encouraged to look for fliers with a form to request a formal application. They will be available at local libraries and post offices and at U.S. Bank in Granby, Boyle said.

According to Habitat officials, all requests for applications must be received before Oct. 30.
