February 21, 2017 (Montrose, CO) — Fabiola and Craig Johnson will receive the keys to their new home this week and Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans is inviting the community to help celebrate.
Construction of the two-bedroom family home began last March; the dedication is scheduled for February 28 at 1:30p.m., and the community is invited for light refreshments, a commemoration and a ribbon cutting to welcome the Johnsons, and their two young children, to their home.
The house is located at 222 Bluegrass Ct., in Montrose.
The Johnson home is the 52nd built by the Habitat affiliate which serves locals by building and renovating basic, affordable homes.
Like all Habitat for Humanity homeowners, the Johnsons poured more than 500 hours of sweat equity working to build their home alongside volunteers and community partners.
On a video on Habitat’s website, Mr. Johnson says, “I can’t believe this is ours.”
“We just feel so very blessed,” said Mrs. Johnson holding her young son in her arms.
Earlier this month Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans announced two new housing triplexes set for construction in both Montrose and Ridgway. Applications are available at their website, buildinglives.org.
