Habit for Humanity to build four new homes on Cousineau Street
By Fred Sherwin
Orléans Online

Fresh off their recent build on Nantes Drive in Avalon, Habitat for Humanity is planning to build four more homes on Cousineau Street in Convent Glen South in the coming year.

The four homes will be comprised of two single detached homes and two semi-detached homes. The build will begin as soon as the city approves the building permits.

According to the National Capital Region Habitat for Humanity, the four homes will be more simple in design than the ones that were built on Nantes Drive last year.

They will also be built along two different themes -- females and youth. The Female Build will be conducted by teams of women who raise funds and awareness about Habitat for Humanity, while the Youth Build will be conducted by youth from local schools and community organizations. Anyone interested in volunteering for the build can submit their name and contact information at www.habitatncr.com.

If all goes well the homes will be ready for occupancy next fall. Under the Habitat for Humanity program, potential recipients must meet several criteria, among them the ability to pay a predetermined interest free mortgage. They must also invest a minimum of 500 hours into the construction of their home as a downpayment.

The recipient families of the four new homes on Cousineau Street will be announced next week.

The four new homes will bring the total number of Habitat for Humanity homes in Orléans to 13. There are seven on Nante Drive and two on Tulip Crescent in Chatelaine Village.
