Shores donation aides Habitat for Humanity

(Continued)

MT. VERNON — —

Laughlin said the project took just two days to complete — the first day clearing trees and the construction of the building pad the following day.

"Some of the material we've got here is from the concrete we recycled from the old hospital to make the base of the building," he said.

The building is going to be a 30 by 48 storage building for Habitat for Humanity.

"There'll be office space with a conditioned storage space for paints and/or materials that can't overheat or freeze with a bathroom," Laughlin said, adding the building will be used as office space and a conference room for Habitat for Humanity.

"We've got the small garage and trailer (to the south of the Lifeboat shelter). We have recently turned over the shelter to Lifeboat completely. They will be the owners as soon as the paperwork changes hands and the garage was included in the deal," Laughlin said.

Habitat for Humanity has been using donated space on the fourth floor of the US Bank Building.

"We were looking for a place where we could use our logo and our own space to have meetings and call our own," Laughlin said.

Laughlin estimated the cost to construct the new metal building, which is coming from a company in Dahlgren, to be approximately $20,000.

"Shores volunteered to get us to this point. We (Habitat) will pour the floor ourselves, interior walls and finishes and then we'll have a licensed plumber and electrician to come in to finish out the interior," Laughlin said.

Habitat for Humanity has selected a family and will begin construction on a home in the Summersville area this summer.

"That's part of the push to get this building up so we will have a place to store materials during the project," Laughlin said.
