Espanola residents now have a better idea of what’s involved in building a Habitat for Humanity home. Spokeswoman Ellen Frood says it takes about six months to build a Habitat home because the group uses volunteers. But because of that, Habitat can build homes for about $50,000 once materials are factored in. Frood says it’s Habitat’s hope to build one or two homes a year in small communities in the region. Habitat is currently in the final stages of securing a lot for an Espanola home for a needy family. If you want to volunteer, call 688-8808.
