How We Spent Our Summer Vacation
The NEK Habitat Building Team and volunteers completed eight small projects this summer, ranging from a small mini-ramp, at no cost, to a new roof.
Our completed summer projects are:
Carol in Newport
needed to remove a chimney which was causing her problems. Our crew carefully took down her chimney, block-by-block, and repaired her roof and siding.
Bonnie in Lyndonville
needed a very small interior ramp to get into her shower. We used surplus material; no charge.
Cheri in West Burke
needed siding on the back wall of her house to match the siding on the other three sides. Carefully removing a collection of number plates which had served as partial siding, the crew installed the new siding and had enough left over to do a dormer.
Elizabeth in Barton
was losing her porch as it settled into the ground. Our crew jacked up the porch, replaced some supports and installed concrete bases, and replaced some floor boards.
Lisa in Sutton
needed some new, energy saving windows in her trailer. We replaced seven windows.

Eugene and Mable live in a small two-unit trailer park in Derby
on land which they rent. Working with the owner, Habitat built an extensive ramp with funding from the Vermont Center for Independent Living.
Victoria in Barnet
needed a new roof. The Habitat committee suggested a new, green metal roof over her existing shingles.
