A home unique to Spring Grove is being built as part of a Habitat for Humanity project.

“This project includes a unique partnership with the Village of Spring Grove, local high school students and an architectural desinger specializing in Norwegian design to conceptualize and build a home that highlights and incorporates the Norwegian heritage of this community,” said Kahya Fox, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of the La Crosse Area.

The community has rallied behind the efforts to make the home ownership dreams come true for Sherry Pitts and her family.

Dubbed “The Heritage House” there is still a need for help.

“This Heritage House will be built alongside a local, low-income partner family to provide a decent, safe and affordable home they can call their own,” Fox said. “We could not do it without the help of partner businesses and hundreds of volunteers.”

The United Methodist church is hosting Fox on Wednesday, July 17 at 6:30 p.m.

The event is open to the public and you can come and learn how you can help bring this house to Houston county.

“We are looking for teams and individuals tho help build this home alongside our staff and future homeowner,” said Fox. “It takes over 2,500 volunteer hours to build a Habitat home.”
