SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – The Greater Springfield Vermont Area Habitat for Humanity, your local Habitat chapter, has acquired a rehabilitation property to work on and offer for sale to an eligible partner family.
It is a two-bedroom ranch with kitchen, living room, one bath, attached heated breezeway, and large two-car garage with a finished unheated room overhead. There is an in-ground pool off the breezeway. The property is 1.6 acres off a paved town road at 422 Lacross Rd. The property is on the school bus route.
There is a drilled well and septic system plus spring rights to fill the pool. A hot air furnace is in the cellar, and there is a full-sized attic for storage and an enclosed unheated front porch.
We are starting with the rehabilitation, so we are looking for volunteer workers for demolition work, as well as insulation and sheetrock installation inside. Outside we need volunteers for brush and tree removal, plus soil trucking and leveling to smooth out some of the deep wheel ruts in the field.
Call Walter Pluss at 802-343-5833 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer to work or donate materials or funds for the project. If you can’t reach Walter, you may contact Dave Yesman at 802-885-5318 or email@example.com.
