The Estevan chapter of Habitat for Humanity is inching ever closer to wrapping up their house build project.

"We're just doing the final paint touch ups, and caulking around the seams on doors, baseboards and that kind of thing. We're sort of taking it a room at a time, doing the final clean up, then picking up all the cardboard that's covering the flooring," related Doug Barnstable, the Chairman of the Steering Committee.

"Hopefully by early in the week, we'll have everything pretty well wrapped up, I'd think Monday or Tuesday. We're waiting on a couple of things to come, but they'll be here then. It's nothing significant or major involved in any of that."

He also made note of all the support received from the Energy City.

"There's been very good response from the community. We've had lots of people involved, various businesses as well as individuals, and we really appreciate all the support that we have gotten from everyone."

While they were a little later than they anticipated in getting started on the construction, Barnstable said that they have managed to complete the work quicker than other H4H projects have gone.

"We didn't get any delays because of weather, so it was a good year for building, and that helped us a lot as well."

They enjoyed having folks come out and help and look at the work in progress, and hope to begin efforts on another house in 2019.
