23 Mar Construction Update – The Brays Island House Build March 3 to March 23, 2017
February 27th – March 3rd Our wonderful Collegiate Challenge group from Neumann University, Campus Ministry framed all the exterior walls and ended their week with the wall raising. What a great group of young people! Pictured here are Team Neumann with Habitat Partner & future owner of the Brays Island House, Sheryl Tucker.

Thank you so much to all 41 Volunteers, Students and Marines who, in the past 23 days, have contributed 608 hours on the Brays Island House build at 2216 Trask Parkway. This coming week, our construction manager, Michael Perry will attend the Habitat for Humanity 2017 Global Conference in Atlanta. The following week, work will resume on the Brays Island House. Wednesday April 5th promises to be an exciting day when a crane will get the roof trusses in place. To coin an old phrase: The Excitement is Building!
