Home builders kickoff a week-long blitz build with Habitat for Humanity

Building industry professionals in 24 states and in 63 communities across the U.S. are lending their construction skills to Habitat for Humanity to help build, renovate and repair more than 200 homes through the Home Builders Blitz.  Habitat’s Home Builders Blitz is a partnership between Habitat affiliates and the building community to help create decent and affordable homes. Builders and Habitat affiliates work closely to organize all aspects of building, including securing subcontractors and suppliers, fundraising and seeking donations of materials. Builders participating in the program this year will work with more than 80 Habitat affiliates to build rehabilitate or repair a total of 204 homes.  Kicking off in Memphis, Tenn., Steve Thomas, the Emmy Award-winning former host of This Old House and Renovation Nation, will help to raise awareness and will travel to Home Builders Blitz work sites to discuss how building professionals are taking an active role in helping to address the affordable housing needs of their communities.
