Two families build their new homes in Chatham through Habitat for Humanity
Two more Cape Cod families got the keys to their new homes this week through Habitat for Humanity.
The two homes are on George Ryder Road South in Chatham.
One of the homes has two bedrooms and will be purchased by the homeowners for just over $150,000. The other has three bedrooms and goes for just over $168,000. In the end, each home cost about $300,000 to build, but thanks to donations of materials, labor, and cash, Habitat can sell them at much lower prices.
Habitat’s Tara Cronin says one of the new homeowners works at Cape Cod Healthcare and another works at the Dennis-Yarmouth School District.
She noted that most of the families who have purchased Habitat homes on Cape Cod were already living and working on the Cape.
The organization held a dedication ceremony for the homes on Monday.
Habitat is planning to build more homes next year in Dennis, Yarmouth, and Wellfleet. Information on how to apply is at Habitatcapecod.org.
