WESTCHESTER HOMES CHOSEN BY HABITAT FOR HUMNAITY

Housatonic Habitat for Humanity is planning construction of five condominiums on Hospital Avenue in Danbury, CT.

Mary Aly, executive director of Housatonic Habitat for Humanity, said that for the first time the local Habitat will be using modular construction by Westchester Modular for its housing.


In addition to costing less than stick-built new construction, using modular buildings will allow the project to be started and finished in 2011. The Habitat requirement that the new owners put 400 hours of sweat equity into the project will remain, though they might be doing less construction work and more painting and other finishing tasks because much of a modular building arrives prebuilt, Aly said.  The requirement for the new homeowner would not be any less but volunteer help would be.  

This is another avenue for factories to explore for sales.
