Restore your home & Renovate your Spirit

We all know how the world of home ownership has a downside with the constant money pit! There is even a movie about it with Michael Keaton  but here is one way that you can renovate, renew or repair your castle while helping out a blue ribbon non profit.

Founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live.  Habitat for Humanity helps people in need regardless of race or religion.

While many people know that individuals and groups  can  help in the building process there are other ways to help, one is to consider them as a supply source when purchasing recycled & donated goods for your fix-it projects.

Habitat for Humanity’s nationwide “ReStores” sell surplus,  new and gently used building materials, household items,  furniture and fixtures collected from contractors, individuals and partner retail stores.

The donated materials are sold at 20-70% off retail prices. Proceeds from the sale of materials help support the mission of Habitat for Humanity.  Of course if your house is fit to be seen on the after pics of HGTV, you might consider donating your left over materials.
