Sharra Meadows, future resident of the new home, was present for the event along with PlayPower employees and Habitat board members. The PlayPower employees were members of a community action team directed by Tina Swearingin.
The construction of the home began in May. Prior to the wall raising, the construction schedule included digging and pouring the footing, pouring the foundation, floor, wall and front porch framing.
The home will be 1,228 square feet which will include three bedrooms, one and a-half baths, kitchen, dining area, utility room, living room, storage area and a front porch.
"Construction was delayed a week due to the surveying of the land," said Karen Standerwick, Habitat secretary. "We have had a great response for help on the house and just proves that the community is willing to give back and help. Our construction is now on schedule."
The sixth home will house four, Meadows and her three daughters.
Jim Copeland Construction is the building contractor. John J. Turner, of Minnesota, donated the lot.
"Several church groups and community organizations are scheduled to work," said Standerwick. "Donations are important so we can continue to keep building. We try to build one house a year or make repairs on existing homes."
