Another Habitat for Humanity House Being Built in Kaiapoi

130212 Habitat for Humanity House in Fuller St, Kaiapoi (300x225)

The Fuller St house shortly after it arrived from Bexley.

Habitat for Humanity are putting in another house in Fuller Street, Kaiapoi. Unlikethe previous two, which are next door, this one has been brought in on the back of a truck from the Bexley Red Zone. A group of volunteers from the USA (+ one from Australia) helped prepare the site. I applaud the recycling of houses in this way. Many of the red zone houses are eminently removable and repairable, and it seems a waste to demolish them. Habitat for Humanity is an international organisation that puts up affordable houses all around the world, using a mixture of volunteers and professionals to build them.  It’s great to see them in Kaiapoi.
