They WILL build ONE HOME, FOR ONE FAMILY, IN ONE WEEK - the professional builders of HBRACC together with their vendors, donate all of the labor, materials and supplies for affordable home to be purchased by a local family.
Watch the time lapse videos of a home being built in one week, 2017, 2015 and 2013.
WHEN? Week of September 16th, 2019
WHERE? Paul Hush Way, Brewster, MA
WHY? To bring awareness to the increasing issue of the lack of workforce housing on the Cape ... homes that our working singles and families can afford allowing them to stay here and contribute to the future of Cape Cod.
HOW? The 2019 Blitz house, a two-story, three-bedroom Cape, will be one of eight affordable homes being constructed in phase 2 of what will be a 14-home subdivision on Paul Hush Way, Brewster. The nearly 14-acre site was purchased with Town of Brewster Community Preservation Act funds by Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod.
Hundreds of members of the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod (HBRACC) donate supplies and volunteer countless hours of skilled labor to build one home for one family in one week.
Crews line up one after the other, working within their area of expertise including: framing, sheathing, siding, roofing, interior finish, painting and appliance installation. Project managers worked closely with town building inspectors to ensure that all aspects of the home met building codes.
