TMSG: Habitat House

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Just five days ago in the 2000 block of Wayne St. in South Lansing, the Home Builders Association and Habitat for Humanity started building a house.

And five days later, now completed, this house is ready for the Konwerskis.

“All of the donations came from the h-b-a members everything from roofing, siding, windows, gutters flooring,” said Lacey Thompson, Home Builders Association.

Volunteers are putting finishing touches on the house. It should be fancy and ready for the family by the end of Friday.

“We actually did a lot better than what we thought we could do with some of the donations for the shower that's in there. It's a little bit more, a much more handicap friendly shower that we got donated,” said Aaron Tobias, co-owner, Century Construction.

And the Konwerskis were in love.

“It will definitely be nice to make it ours. Not somebody else's home we're living in. This is our home,” said Ashley Konwerski, future home owner.

Reporter: “How does that make you feel?”

Ashley: “*sigh* overwhelmed. Very emotional.”

It's coming. It seems like it's right around the corner, and the house is already almost finished so. We're really excited,” said Timothy Konwerski, future home owner.

Tobias of Century Construction says construction was surprisingly smooth sailing, even under a time crunch.

“It came together really well. We're really happy. I mean everything was fairly smooth. There's a lot of people working there, so it's close quarters but we're pretty happy with the way things worked out.”

The official ceremony will happen Monday. That's when the keys will be handed over to the Konwerskis.

In August, they’ll be able to move in.
