Home Builders Blitz is Back!
October 12, 2023
We’re partnering with local home builders Garman Homes and J. Hoffman Studio Design + Build for the 2023 Home Builders Blitz. Two Habitat homes will be constructed from start to finish in just seven days.
Durham Habitat and the partner builders are embarking on this ambitious week-long project in response to the incredible need for more affordable homeownership opportunities for Durham families. Staff from Garman Homes and J. Hoffman Studio, along with many professional subcontractors, will work sun-up to sun-down all week to construct the two homes. This year’s Home Builders Blitz marks a return to the annual event, which has been on pause since 2019.
For the Home Builders Blitz, Durham Habitat acquires the land, develops the sites, provides the house plans, and permits, and selects the partner families. The professional building companies – Garman Homes and J. Hoffman Studio Design + Build – then call on their regular contractors to provide materials and labor for the projects.
The Builders Blitz is truly a community effort, with dozens of sponsors and volunteers coming together to make this incredible event happen!
Construction kicks off Friday, October 13 and concludes on Friday October 20.
