The keys have been handed to another Habitat homeowner! On Wednesday, June 22, Palouse Habitat for Humanity celebrated the completion of the Hansen family home in Uniontown. Kyle Hansen completed over 300 hours helping build his home, starting in the Palouse Habitat Surplus Sale before we had broken ground on his home. The Hansen home was built primarily by the Palouse Habitat Codger Crew, our core group of build site volunteers, but as COVID restrictions lifted they were joined by a growing number of community volunteers, including teams from Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Moscow, Plateau Archaeological Investigations, LLC, WSU Center for Civic Engagement – WSU CCE, University of Idaho Humanitarian Engineering Corps, Lewiston Firefighters Local 1773, United Way of Whitman County, United Way of Moscow/Latah County, SEL Community—Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories employees, Pullman Key Club, and missionaries from Washington Spokane Service Mission. We’d also like to thank the local businesses, individuals and organizations who donated materials and skilled labor: Avista Utilities, Bishop Law Office (Eric Hanson), Cabinets & More (Tom Carpenter), Howard Hughes Appliance, TV & Sleep Shop, Jim Fredenburg, LEVOLOR, Kevin Mckerinan, Pinnacle Appraisals (Cheryl Weeks), Stewart Title (Melanie Schafer), WSU School of Design + Construction, and Whirlpool. Thank you to Dave Stradley, Construction Supervisor, and Dave Ostrom, Project Manager, Safety Officer and Board Member, for your dedication and leadership throughout this home build. Finally, many thanks to all who donated financially to make this home a reality for Kyle and his son Kyas. It takes a community to build a Habitat home – thank you for coming together to build the Hansen home!
