It was a BIG day for Two Rivers Habitat for Humanity as Ken Quattrin made the official announcement that Owatonna will be the site for not one but two new homes being built by Two Rivers Habitat for Humanity in 2021. Not only that, but the families for both homes being built has been chosen, and local businesses are making this project happen as well. Stepping up in a big way for the community was Daikin Applied with a $75,000 contribution and Climate by Design International with a $25,000 donation!

Two Rivers Habitat for Humanity posted about the big news this afternoon sharing a little bit more on their Facebook page.

 

We're excited to announce that TWO new homes will be built in Owatonna, MN come spring of 2021. One along Linn and one...

The homes will be located on lots donated by the Kottke family, with a 'ceremonial' groundbreaking scheduled for November 10th. At the groundbreaking will be the families that have been chosen for these homes on Linn and Mosher Avenues.

The home designs are even staying local as Alexander Lumber is drawing up plans for a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home slated to be built on Linn Ave.

On top of the large contributions by Daikin Applied and Climate by Design International the two companies will also be bringing in volunteers to help with the project. 400-600 volunteers for the homes will come from these two businesses alone!

Construction on the homes will begin weather permitting in April of 2021 with a possible move-in month of either December 2021 or January 2022.

A big congratulations to the future home occupants, Two Rivers Habitat for Humanity, and all parties involved in making this a truly local project.
