The Greater Erie Area Habitat for Humanity has provided homeownership opportunities for more than 50 families in the Erie area including 4 in Union City for over 20 years. We have built both new construction and have rehabbed several homes for new families during this time.
New construction Habitat houses are generally a 3 or 4 bedroom design. House size is based on family need. All our new construction houses include a shed for extra storage, washer and dryer hook-ups, and a drive-way for off-street parking.
This is a new construction project sponsored by Erie Insurance. This home will have 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and an open kitchen/living room design. All of this is built on a crawl space. It will also be considered a Fortified house as additional steps were taken in the construction of the house to withstand harsh weather conditions in our area, ie. high winds.
This has been the site of "The House that Grace Built". The house construction is complete. Now, work is focused on the sidewalks to finish the house.
This is a rehab project. We have been working on this house since mid-winter. It is a cool, old design with the 2nd floor opening up into a large family room with rooms off of it in a pod-like style.
