The Bryant Family Home

The Bryant Family home is being built by Durham Habitat site supervisor Jerry. This home is called "The House That Love Built", as it is being sponsored by a couple who met on a Habitat build site! Ryan is a Durham Habitat construction team member who will be helping build the home.

Our amazing volunteers from the Duke Fuqua School of Business MBA program were out on site Aug 12-16. They made some great progress on the Bryant home, and did a lot of siding work. (Hope you're not afraid of heights, Habitat volunteers!) Many thanks to our Siding Geezers crew (Gene Carlone pictured here) who volunteered alongside the Fuqua students to share their construction expertise and also help keep our work sites safe.
