Homeowners should be able to move in to the homes in six months.
After 11 days and thousands of hours of volunteer work, Charlottesville's Habitat for Humanity is celebrating a major accomplishment.
Habitat reached its goal for the Belmont Push to frame eight homes in just 11 days. More than 200 volunteers committed more than 3,000 hours of work to the project, including partner families like Sheron Sinclair, who will soon have their own habitat homes.
"It is a huge relief and a dream that would not have been met without habitat so it's amazing to have this opportunity and to help other people reach this goal as well," Sinclair said.
Habitat wants to thank the community for the support over the past 11 days. The nonprofit says volunteers really reached out to help with this ambitious project. Roofing work is next.
Homeowners should be able to move into the Belmont cottages neighborhood in about six months.
