A significant component of the Building Hope Initiative provides funding for construction and furnishing of a new Boys Home. The new home (which will be known as Heidt Hope House) replaces the original boys home which opened in 1977. It will welcome up to 8 scholars and 2 live-in residential educators and is located next door to an existing Boys Home (Harold C. Schott House).
We are so excited by the progress on our new Home! Now that work has moved inside we know it is harder to see what is going on so we will be providing weekly updates from the construction site.
Check out this video that shows the transformation from ground clearing in December thru the end of April: VIDEO UPDATE
UPDATE week ending 5/12: Valley Interior has been busy hanging 600 12′ sheets of Continental Building Products drywall and J Construction has finished laying the brick
What do you do on a construction site when Mother Nature decides rain is on the agenda? Drywall! It’s really starting to look like a Home! These photos were taken the week ending May 5th
These photos were taken Sunday, April 30th by BHI Chair and new home owner’s representative, Mark Stall. The brickwork looks amazing!!
