Habitat Blitz Build Needs Skilled Tradesmen

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.
