On Saturday, December 4th, Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod will raise walls and begin volunteer construction on 6 new affordable homes on Willett Way in Falmouth. (use 36 Barrows Road for GPS purposes only) Willett Way is a newly named road, in honor of the late Herbert L. Willett, III, a local philanthropist dedicated to improving the lives of Falmouth residents, favoring support of fundamental needs for shelter, medical services, education and enrichment.

On Wall Raising Day, volunteers and the families who will build and then purchase the 6 affordable homes will come together for the first official day of volunteer construction. The public is invited to watch the morning ceremony, beginning at 8am, where the families will be introduced, the homes will be blessed and then the walls will be raised with help from the community, including first responders and military personnel.

The Falmouth Habitat homes will be a mix of two to three bedrooms and the price to the homeowner will be $150,000 to $168,000. Habitat Cape Cod homes are typically net zero possible, with solar panels, and air source heat pumps, which don’t use fossil fuels or combustion, for less environmental impact while lowering the homeowner’s energy cost.

In the past 30 years, Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod has developed over 155 affordable homes on Cape Cod, with 12 more under volunteer construction this year. Local families help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. And the Homes are deed restricted to remain affordable in perpetuity.
