Written by andrew-rossi on September 27, 2019
Wednesday was Demo Day in Powell, as Mountain Spirit Habitat for Humanity took the first steps towards its first home build in 20 years.
15 people, including board members and employees, gathered to witness the destruction of the existing structure where the new home will be constructed.
Nikki Hoellwarth, the Executive Director of Mountain Spirit Habitat, says the demolition is only the first step in building Powell’s first Habitat house in two decades. Construction of the actual house won’t begin until Spring 2020 when the Family Selection Process is complete, so this home can be built exactly for the family’s needs.
The mission of Mountain Spirit Habitat is to,“bring people together to build homes, communities and hope.”. This will Mountain Spirit Habitat’s 21st home since 1997.
