Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity

KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN (Kalamazoo Gazette) - Kalamazoo Valley Habitat for Humanity will team with more than 300 volunteer professional contractors to build a house in 24 hours beginning Thursday.

The Fast Built House, located at 2911 Virginia Ave. in Kalamazoo, will be the future home of a qualified family who will purchase it through a no-interest morgtage that Habitat provides.

Construction runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and continues from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday. The home is being built in two 12-hour periods this year, unlike past years when workers worked for 24 hours straight.

Visit www.habitatkalamazoo.com during construction hours to watch a live web feed. The public is asked to keep a safe distance from the construction site.
