Mecosta County Habitat for Humanity has dedicated it’s 32nd home! We welcomed home Jennifer and Zac Sunday August 25th. Enjoy your new home!
The dream of home ownership is now a reality for Zac and Jennifer! The only thing left to do is a welcome home house dedication. Have fun in your new home!!
We passed all inspections!!! Yahoo!!! Soon we will have a move in date!!
We are getting closer!!! We had an amazing crew of volunteers this last weekend and painted the whole house. We only have a little more painting to do. Thanks to Zack the flooring was delivered and will be installed soon!
The drywall has been hung. Now it’s time for taping and finishing. Soon painting will begin!
Last Saturday some of the Ferris Construction and Criminal justice students came out to volunteer. They were able to install baffles in ceiling in preparation for the insulation. The siding was installed and almost done. On the 17th insulation will be blown in. Lots of progress thanks to our contractor and all our hard working volunteers! Thanks everyone!
We have the roof on and some doors installed. We have the furnace and some plumbing installed as well. Our contractor and volunteers are working on putting up the facia and siding. Windows will be installed soon. It’s very exciting to see the progress! Check it out yourself on the corner of woodward and Bailey in Big Rapids.
The trusses are on and sheeting is on the roof and walls. We hope to be all closed up before the snow flies!!

Before Jennifer's home build begins we need to clean the garage. Yes! A garage was already on the property that was donated to Mecosta County Habitat for Humanity for the new house. Jennifer and many volunteers cleaned out the garage in no time at all. Thank you for all the people that showed up to help!
Jennifer and Zac Deater! Stay tuned to our blog as we work together to unlock the Deater's dream of homeownership.
I'm obsessed. I can't even begin to describe what this Christmas means to me. Everything is different this year. This tree and this house are so beautiful. I could stare at this sight all day. I shoveled my driveway twice today. Loved every second.
Sorry there has been few post. All we can say is busy, busy, busy, all of us were to complete Melissa's house so her family could celebrate Christmas in their new home. We did it! They are snug as a bug in their new home. Check out the photos.
WOW! Summer is flying by!
A short time ago, the lot looked like this...
Now we are looking at this!!!
I'm in such disbelief as to how far we've come on this house. We... *psh*. More like them! Jeff, George, RD and their crews have been so amazing in all the hard work they've done on the house. Tomorrow night, we're going to tour the house with our family and I'm pretty excited to show them how far it's gotten!
Next Wednesday, July 27th at 3pm, we will be having the house blessing. Short & Sweet little ceremony that I would love to see you at. Be there!!
