Moving Day for Our Third Habitat HouseOn December 8, a crew moved our third student-built house for Habitat for Humanity. With little fanfare, they arrived, hoisted the two halves into the air, placed them on steel trailers and transported them just a bit up Glenwood Road, to the new site on Linda Drive. The house was placed onto the waiting foundation, right next door to the last Habitat house, finished a couple years ago. The house was built by not only Broome-Tioga BOCES Carpentry students, but students from several other trades disciplines. Habitat volunteers will complete the structure in the coming months.Read more...
