Nevada County Habitat is boldly going where they have never gone before! Through generous donations by local and national businesses and endorsed by The National Association of Home Builders, Nevada County Habitat for Humanity will be building a home for a hard working local family in a six day Blitz Build starting Today (Monday June 4th) and continuing through June 9. Volunteer builders alongside general building and engineering contractor Chip Gauthier will be working on home #5 of the 16-home Grass Valley Heritage Oaks development. Gautherier says they are in desperate need of skilled tradesmen to get the project in on time.
The Blitz Build home in Nevada County is a state-of-the-art home with the latest sustainable building technologies that have been used together to achieve net-zero energy efficiency. This home is a national model for building green and affordable. It will be sound proof, fire resistant, tornado and earthquake safe, Energy Star certified, and a healthy home. The home will be 2 story, 4 bedroom, 2 full baths, and 1214 square feet. You can watch the Blitz build in real time with the Habitat Web Cams at nc habitat dot org.
