Dalton Carpet One Assists Athens Area Habitat For Humanity
Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home of Athens, Georgia has teamed up with Athens Area Habitat to build an innovative new home for a local low-income family. The crew started breaking ground on May 11, 2021.
This year, Athens Area Habitat was among the 16 Habitat affiliates to partner with Build With Strength. This means that Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home will be assisting in building a high-strength, high-efficiency home using insulating concrete forms, otherwise known as ICFs.
With recent lumber shortages and increased prices on building materials, this ICF build will help reduce costs while also increasing energy efficiency by 60%.
Dalton Carpet One Floor & Home has been a proud supporter of Habitat for Humanity for several years. Their employees are among the many volunteers who don hard hats and get out there to do the work for bi-annual home builds.
This isn't the first home that Dalton Carpet One has volunteered to help with and donated flooring —and it certainly won't be their last. Dalton Carpet One staff enjoys working with the organization to gift their time and services to those in need.
Habitat for Humanity Home Build Projects strive to create excellent and affordable homes for families who need a safe, secure, and dependable place to call home. The Home Build program aims to give these families homes that are spacious enough to meet their individual needs and affordable to their income. The homebuyers work with volunteers to construct the home they've been waiting for, forming lasting bonds with other members of their community in the process.
