CLEARLAKE – Habitat for Humanity would like to invite the public to come see for themselves and celebrate the completion of the eighth Habitat for Humanity home in Lake County.

The beautiful, four-bedroom home incorporates some of the latest “green building” techniques and energy efficiencies and is the first Habitat home in Lake County completed with solar panels.

The open house and dedication will be Saturday, Jan. 12, 12 p.m., at 15921 39th Ave, Clearlake, (cross street of Phillips Ave).

Come and join the festivities and meet the homeowners, and volunteers who worked so hard to build this home. Refreshments will be served and the event will continue on rain or shine.

This would be the perfect opportunity to see for yourself how our community of volunteers, donors and business supporters came together to help eliminate substandard housing for a Lake County family.

Also, for families who are considering applying for a Habitat home this would be a great time to view a completed Habitat home.

For those who cannot attend the Saturday celebration, we will have the home open for showing on Friday, Jan. 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For further information, or to RSVP for Friday’s showing, please call 994-1100.

Habitat for Humanity, Lake County, currently has two other homes under construction which are scheduled for completion very soon, with plans to build four additional homes in 2008.

All homes are sold at a zero interest mortgage, enabling many more people in Lake County to own a home of their own.
