Now that electricity is connected and the interior painting is finished, volunteers will be doing most of the finishing work at the newest Habitat for Humanity house in Sorento. Eric Watterson, with the Bond County chapter of Habitat for Humanity, told us what’s next on the agenda.
“Well, right now, we’re going to need painting help to get all these doors and baseboards painted,” Watterson told WGEL. “And then, of course, some help to get them installed. So, that’ll be a couple, three weeks perhaps, then we’ll have that all finished off. Primarily we work on Saturdays. We try to accommodate people’s regular jobs.
“Once we have doors and baseboards down, we’re going to be putting in flooring. We’re going to be putting in a laminate floor in the kitchen and living area, so we’re going to need several days worth of work on that, I believe.”
Watterson said he hopes to have the house completely finished this summer. If you’re interested in making a donation or volunteering, call 322-0080.
